Remote job description

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:

Technical Program Managers (TPMs) are responsible for our most crucial and thought provoking projects that span teams, products, and organizations. We are highly-technical, organized, and deliver projects across ambiguous ownership lines. Specific opportunities across Security/Privacy/Compliance, Build Tools, Disaster Recovery, and Data Engineering.

The opportunity:

We anticipate massive growth in both people and product over the next few years. When we need to update our platform to work with new infrastructure or implement new system-wide capabilities, our TPMs lead the effort. Where our Product and Engineering organization focus on delivering new product functionality, our TPMs uplevel our entire platform by coordinating/leading the efforts of many and directing them towards a focused outcome.
