The Opportunity:

Datadog is looking for an experienced and versatile Contracts Manager to join its expanding Legal team.  The Contracts Manager will be responsible for authoring, reviewing and negotiating a wide range of vendor contracts, as well as supporting the continued build out of contract review and management-related systems and process adoption and managing the administrative aspects of Datadog Legal’s buy-side commercial practice. This role will report to the Associate General Counsel, Commercial & Litigation, but will work closely with other Datadogs within and outside the Legal Department.

You Will:

  • Work collaboratively with the Legal team, the Procurement team and business stakeholders to identify gaps between proposed contract terms and identified business requirements.

  • Coordinate agreement and vendor reviews with the Privacy and Security teams to balance and monitor vendor risk.

  • Respond to inquiries regarding terms in existing contracts and assist stakeholders in understanding contract provisions.

  • Contribute to the development, improvement and maintenance of appropriate contract templates.

  • Support the ongoing development of negotiation playbooks and self-help stakeholder resources to triage and process high-volume agreements.

  • Work with the LegalOps sub-team of the Legal Department to help support the Department’s use of technology tools.

  • Support the implementation of contracting technology (tools such as CLM or AI assisted review).

  • Run and analyze data visualizations as appropriate to inform improvements and the future directions of the vendor contracts processes.

  • Initiate and participate in various projects and identify opportunities to support department and company goals and requirements.

  • Provide such other administrative support to the Legal Department as may be required.

You Are:

  • A contracts and legal operations professional with at least 3-5 years of relevant experience, ideally including in connection with SaaS business and contract management systems.

  • Experienced in negotiating a broad range of agreements, with a working knowledge of data privacy and security issues related to technology, benefits, marketing, supplier and other agreements.

  • Skilled at analyzing, synthesizing, explaining and negotiating legal terms.

  • Experienced in self-service contracts and resources, training materials/playbooks and related workflow processes and platforms.

  • Organized, process-driven and resourceful with an attention to detail, the skill and desire to learn new things and an aptitude for/interest in technology.

  • A strong written and verbal communicator, with excellent interpersonal skills and a demonstrated ability to operate effectively across functions and in stressful situations.

  • Able to work independently with little guidance, but also with an understanding of when matters need escalation within or outside the Legal team.

  • Flexible and eager to work in a fast-paced environment and meet tight deadlines, with an attitude that no task is too big or too small.

Why You Should Apply: 

  • Generous and competitive benefits

  • New hire stock equity (RSUs) and employee stock purchase plan

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.
