Description

We're a new team at Datadog building AI-assisted tools to make developers more effective, by autonomously generating tests, fixing bugs, and improving performance. We're looking for a product-minded generalist to help us quickly define and ship products that make all of our customers 10x developers.

At Datadog, we value our office culture - the relationships and collaboration it builds and the creativity it brings to the table. We operate as a hybrid workplace to ensure our Datadogs can create a work-life harmony that best fits them.

What You'll Do:

  • Work closely with our users, designers, and PMs on cutting edge and delightful LLM-based agents
  • Regularly talk with users to understand their needs and get their feedback
  • Rapidly design and prototype open-ended, full stack features. Iterate quickly with early adopters, learn what works, and productionize it
  • Work with other Datadog teams to expand capabilities, for example integrating with the Datadog IDE extensions to deliver a CoPilot-like assistant, or Dynamic Instrumentation to collect more runtime data from production and pre-production environments

Who You Are:

  • Passionate about Generative AI and its ability to help software engineers be more productive
  • Ship fast, route around blockers, and are comfortable working with ambiguity
  • Love talking with users
  • Happy to jump into any part of the stack and do whatever's needed to move a project forward
  • Have great product taste
  • May have been a founder or early builder at a startup
  • Have a BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science, Engineering or related scientific field or equivalent experience

Benefits and Growth:

  • Get to build tools for software engineers, just like yourself, and use the tools we build to accelerate our development
  • Have a lot of influence on product direction and impact on the business
  • Work with skilled, knowledgeable, and kind teammates who are happy to teach and learn
  • Competitive global benefits
  • Continuous professional development

Datadog offers a competitive salary and equity package, and may include variable compensation. In addition, Datadog provides a wide range of best-in-class, comprehensive and inclusive employee benefits including healthcare, dental, parental planning, mental health benefits, a 401(k) plan and match, paid time off, fitness reimbursements, and a discounted employee stock purchase plan.
