An Insider's view of Datadog

What's something quirky about your company?

Although I work on a frontend team, I enjoy tuning into both wins and learnings from all parts of the stack across the company. There are so many places to learn in addition to my main job, from email digests of "performance wins" to lunch and learn talks on technical considerations when building an emulator for classic video game consoles.

Senior Software Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts with checking out new feature releases, reading team threads & reviewing my calendar. Around midday I hit my stride writing up investigative notes & follow up on each case I tackle. I also help my teammates in their investigations! My goal for the day is ensuring all cases are accounted for & that I'm always learning something new.

How does the company support your career growth?

Datadog has supplied me the tools to successfully learn & grow within the company. I'm incessantly challenged & continue to be rewarded for my hard work through multiple promotions in my tenure. I started as a Solutions Engineer, was promoted to a Sales Engineer, and am now embedding with the Product Management team. The opportunities are endless.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We are building a planet scale multi-cloud streaming telemetry platform. Not just for observability, but eventually for any and all business data. Building that involves tackling any number of engineering challenges no-one has tackled before, innovating along the way. Our engineers don't just influence the company's direction, they shape it.

Ian

Senior Vice President, Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Datadog as a Product Manager for a specific part of the platform 3 years ago. I’ve since then grown into a senior role, managing other product managers and owning several parts of the product roadmap. I’ve been given real growth opportunities, all while feeling supported and encouraged to develop my leadership and product skills.
