The Opportunity:

You would join either our Product Design team or our DesignOps team at an ideal time to make a big impact.

Product Design:

We’re looking for a product design intern with a passion for building technical tools and data-driven products. Our designers create the UIs that developers around the world rely on: real-time dashboards, data visualizations, incident notebooks, and the design systems and tools that power them. Our work makes the data we collect easy for users to understand and act on.

We are growing rapidly, beginning greenfield projects that are targeted at new user groups, and also refining and expanding on our most impactful existing features.

In This Role You Will:

  • Work with design leaders and product managers to understand how our customers use Datadog and what they need to succeed
  • See your design work through from start to finish: turn insights from user research into ideas, sketch and prototype to bring them to life, and propose final features or improvements that make Datadog better
  • Document and present your design to the team and work to get buy-in from key stakeholders
  • Work closely with our Design Systems engineers and our product engineering teams to understand how your designs will be built

DesignOps:

We’re looking for a product design intern with a passion for scalable design systems. As our platform expands, the consistency and connectedness of our products becomes increasingly important to our success. The DesignOps team plays a crucial role in finding opportunities to develop reusable UI and UX patterns, and then developing, documenting, and evangelizing them.

We are expanding globally, designing and building multiple new products and patterns, and you’ll be involved in every step of the process—discovering opportunities, collaborating with product teams on solutions, and seeing them through to production.

You will learn how to identify opportunities to improve the consistency and connectedness of product experiences, how to design effective component-based systems, and how to work with product designers and engineers to bring user requirements into our production systems.

In This Role You Will:

  • Work with design leaders and product managers to understand how our customers use Datadog and what they need to succeed
  • See your design work through from start to finish: turn insights from user research into ideas, sketch and prototype to bring them to life, and propose final features or improvements that make Datadog better
  • Document and present your design to the team and work to get buy-in from key stakeholders
  • Work closely with our Design Systems engineers and our product engineering teams to understand how your designs will be built

You Are:

  • You are in the process of receiving a degree, graduating between fall 2022 - summer 2023
  • You are able to work full-time for at least 12 weeks starting in January 2022 or May 2022
  • You have experience in digital product design
  • Your portfolio includes interaction design work on web applications
  • You are an excellent visual and written communicator, able to clearly document and present your design work and speak to the reasoning for your design decisions
  • You understand systems thinking and component-based design patterns
  • You give and receive feedback well, supporting and improving the work of your colleagues as well as your own
  • You want to work in a rapidly changing, high-growth environment

Bonus Points:

  • You understand cloud infrastructure and have experience with platforms like AWS, GCP, or Azure
  • You have worked on technical products
  • Your portfolio includes UI or UX audits
  • You have experience with advanced prototyping tools (e.g. Principle, Framer, Figma)
  • You can write HTML, CSS, and React/Javascript

Why You Should Apply: 

  • Mentorship opportunities with team members, leadership, and beyond
  • Continuous career and professional development opportunities
  • Training to develop an in-depth understanding of our product and space
  • Relocation stipend and travel benefits
  • Intern cohort and monthly company social events
  • Networking opportunities with across all teams at Datadog
  • Unlimited snacks & drinks in our office
  • Catered lunches on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
  • Commuter benefits
  • Beautiful offices in convenient locations with amazing views

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to change globally, our hiring plans will change with it. We are following current company safety guidelines with the goal to hire team members who will work within one of our offices (NYC, Boston, Paris) once it’s safe to do so. We will update all applicants with the appropriate changes when necessary.

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.

Cameron

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.

Daniela

Senior Solutions Engineer

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.

LJ

Sales Engineer

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.
