Support Engineer

The Support Engineer is Datadog's front line to making our customers happy and successful. This position provides the opportunity to dive headfirst into the complexities of systems monitoring and candidates must be able to learn quickly.

  • Respond to customer requests, quickly, accurately and with a smile
  • Reproduce issues and file bugs
  • Build out documentation, including writing API examples
  • Driving product conversations based on needs and problems learned during client interactions

Who you must be

  • You’re a critical thinker who defaults to a customer-oriented demeanor
  • You’re self-motivated, detail-oriented, and willing to learn
  • You’re a master at one thing: tell us all about it
  • You’re a tinkerer with some programming experience and a basic knowledge of linux
  • You want to work in a fast, high growth startup environment 

Bonus Points
