About Datadog:

We're on a mission to build the best platform in the world for engineers to understand and scale their systems, applications, and teams. We operate at high scale—trillions of data points per day—providing always-on alerting, metrics visualization, logs, and application tracing for tens of thousands of companies. Our engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way.

 

The team:

The Core Index team designs, builds, and runs high-throughput, low-latency services and data systems to power the Datadog site, including real-time metric, tag, host and container indexing and search. Your data pipelines will ingest, store, analyze, and query tens of millions of events per second from companies all over the globe.

 

You will:

  • Build distributed, high-throughput, real-time data pipelines
  • Do it in Go and Python, with bits of C or other languages
  • Use Kafka, Redis, Cassandra, Elasticsearch and other open-source components
  • Design a way to scale up a service for more traffic

 

Requirements:

  • You have significant backend programming experience in one or more languages
  • You can get down to the low-level when needed
  • You care about code simplicity and performance
  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a scientific field or equivalent experience
  • You want to work in a fast, high-growth startup environment that respects its engineers and customers

 

Bonus points:

  • You've built high scale systems with Kafka, RocksDB, Redis or Cassandra
  • You wrote your own data pipelines once or twice before (and know what you'd like to change)
  • You have significant experience with Go, C, or Python
