Datadog provides infrastructure monitoring as a service. We specialize in monitoring large environments that scale and change very dynamically. Many of the top startups operating large cloud infrastructures are using us, along with quite a few more "traditional" enterprises. A few of them are listed on our site.
Software is eating the world: all industries need to differentiate through data and algorithms. At the same time, infrastructure and applications are built in a way that changes radically from what we had been used to for the past 15 years: We've gone from 10's of physical servers to 100's or 1000's of instances rented by the hour. Releases that used to take place once or twice a year may now happen a hundred times a day. And Infrastructure isn't just a sysadmin concern anymore: developers are now on the front lines too.
In other words: Infrastructure has never been so important and it's undergoing a massive shift. We've built Datadog to be Dev and Ops teams' best friend in this new era.
We're solving hard data analysis and visualization problems for dev & ops teams. We need to make complex situations easy to comprehend: think hundreds of billions of events per day, and users how only have a few seconds to make the right call.
We have opportunities ranging from real-time data pipelines to systems engineering to very interactive front-end Data visualization.
