Garner studied financial engineering at Princeton and followed his plan to work in finance after graduating. However, getting bored a few years in wasn’t part of the plan—so Garner looked for companies that weren’t mundane. His search turned up Datadog, and an interview turned up an offer to be one of the company’s first 30 employees.
Garner’s mornings start by 10 AM with emails and meetings. After he’s met with his team of support engineers, Garner gets going with technical demos scheduled for the day. In general, he collaborates with the Sales and Customer Success Teams to discuss new products or how to integrate feedback into existing ones.
