    What is Datadog?

    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.

    Why does it matter?

    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.

    What kind of problems do we solve?

    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.

    What kind of company are we?

    • We are one of the few NYC Startups to be founded and led by engineers.
    • We are well-funded by top-tier VCs, and are growing fast with real revenues and real customers.
    • About half of us worked together in a previous company. We enjoyed it and decided to do it again.
    • We think of running a startup as a marathon, not a sprint: we don't work crazy hours.
    • We like to keep things in perspective, and keep work a fun, motivating place.
    • We value honesty, teamwork, minimalism and diversity of culture, opinion or style.
    • We enjoy working / eating / drinking on our beautiful rooftop.
