Software Engineer - Data Engineering

At Datadog, we’re on a mission to build the best monitoring platform in the world. We operate at high scale—trillions of data points per day—and high availability, providing always-on alerting, visualization, and tracing for our customers' infrastructure and applications around the globe.

If you’re excited to work on a fast-moving data engineering team with the best open-source data tools at high scale, we want to meet you.

What You Will Do

  • Build distributed, high-volume data pipelines that power the core Datadog product
  • Do it with Spark, Luigi, Kafka and other open-source technologies
  • Work all over the stack, moving fluidly between programming languages: Scala, Java, Python, Go, and more
  • Join a tightly knit team solving hard problems the right way
  • Own meaningful parts of our service, have an impact, grow with the company

What we're looking for

  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a scientific field or equivalent experience
  • You have built and operated data pipelines for real customers in production systems
  • You are fluent in several programming languages (JVM & otherwise)
  • You enjoy wrangling huge amounts of data and exploring new data sets
  • You value code simplicity and performance
  • You want to work in a fast, high growth startup environment that respects its engineers and customers

Bonus Points

  • You are deeply familiar with Spark and/or Hadoop
  • In addition to data pipelines, you’re also quite good with Chef or Puppet
  • You’ve built applications that run on AWS
  • You’ve built your own data pipelines from scratch, know what goes wrong, and have ideas for how to fix it
