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.
Our engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way. Join us as a Performance Engineer to dig deep, understand and predict our platform's technical performance in the most minute details, as well as at the highest level.
In a typical week as a Performance Engineer, you might:
* coach other engineers to craft quantitative models of their systems' performance and cost, * solve gnarly performance issues that nobody else has been able to crack, * build tools that help you in your everyday analysis, * share interesting findings with the community at large, * split your time 50/50 between proactive and reactive performance analysis.
* You have strong foundational knowledge of modern, distributed computing. * You have a proven track record of understanding the performance of large-scale services, quantitatively and in fine details. * Profilers, debuggers, tracers hide no secrets from you, especially in a linux environment. * You display persistence, focus and creativity to get to the bottom of the matter at issue. * You communicate well and your enthusiasm for the craft is contagious.
* You have a strong background in statistics. * You value observability and monitoring. * You are familiar with cloud-based or very large-scale infrastructure.
