Garner’s Story
A Better Plan
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.
