  • Build new data pipelines using Spark, Luigi and other open-source technologies, with programming languages like Scala, Python, and SQL
  • Find meaning in extremely high volume of data and build data visualization for team leads and executives
  • Work closely with product managers, designers, and engineers, understand their problems in order to collect the right data and provide them with the right analytics
  • Have a meaningful impact on many teams at Datadog thanks to data
  • Join a tightly knit team solving hard problems the right way
  • Grow with the company

Who we are looking for
