At Datadog, we build tools that engineering and operations professionals use every day to get their jobs done. We deal with data, graphs, and analytics, and work on technical problems that require a multi-disciplinary approach. Product Designers are involved in the entire product development process, from brainstorming to final pixels. We support and learn from each other, but are empowered to work autonomously. Our team is growing fast; You’ll have a big impact here.
We’re on a mission to bring sanity to Dev & Ops. We’re building a powerful, intuitive, and beautiful product to effortlessly explore large amounts of data, and help our users understand their infrastructure through interactive visualizations.
