At Datadog, we’re on a mission to build the best monitoring platform in the world.

Our engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way.
The team :
The Product Design team works on embedded product teams, collaborating closely with PMs and engineers on major product area. Product Design is its own department, independent from engineering or product management. We’re full-stack designers, owning all aspects of our work from research, prototyping, polish, and engineering hand-off. We work closely together, collaborating with our DesignOps team to develop our design system and tooling.
We’re looking for a Product Design Team Lead to manage and grow our designers and design teams. These teams build the UI that developers around the world rely on: real-time dashboards, data visualizations, data-driven notebooks, core site functionality, and the design systems and tools that power it. Their work makes the data we collect easy for users to understand and act on.
You’ll join at an ideal time to make a big impact. As one of the first few managers in a fast-growing department you’ll help define the role of product design at Datadog as well as our processes to hire, on-board, mentor, and grow designers. We are expanding globally, designing and building multiple new products, and rolling out DesignOps to speed up and scale design. You’ll be involved in every step of the process—defining product, collaborating with PMs and engineering leads, working with designers on research, prototypes and systems, and managing and recruiting other talented designers.You will:
