Datadog employees zig and zag between teams—since collaboration characterizes both the management style and work environment. Leaders step beyond hierarchies, giving employees one-on-one time to learn the company technology while also talking professional development. After learning the basics, people are free to join in on the idea-sharing action.
Several employees work remotely, but they still find time for official bonding outside the office. Outings have ranged from winery trips to company picnics that last the entire day. However, a cozy kitchen, cold brew on tap, and 360-degree views of Manhattan—not to mention the swanky furniture and catered lunches—make HQ hard to leave.
