Datadog is building world-class container-monitoring solutions that allow correlation between traces, metrics and events coming from applications, the containers they run in, and the orchestrators that schedule them. We are looking for a developer experienced with the container ecosystem that will help us push container monitoring to the next level.

- Have a significant impact on the product and the user experience of fellow engineers who use the product

What we're looking for

- You have been working with containers in production for at least a year

- You have significant systems programming experience in one or more languages
