Database Reliability Engineers (DRE) build production-ready solutions that our product engineers can use to build developer tools and automation that quickly scale up for use by thousands of customers. This team ensures that our databases are scalable and cost-efficient, giving our engineers the platform they need to operate in a high-volume, low-latency environment that is continuing to double in size. The DRE team works collaboratively with engineers across the company, using their deep systems understanding to respond to infrastructure failures and reduce operational toil for all.

At Datadog, we place value in our office culture - the relationships that it builds, the creativity it brings to the table, and the collaboration of being together. We operate as a hybrid workplace to ensure our employees can create a work-life harmony that best fits them.

 

What You’ll Do:

  • Keep our datastores reliable, available and fast.
  • Respond to, investigate and fix issues, whether it’s deep in the database code or in the client application.
  • Build tooling to minimize customer-facing downtime, and scale up resources on short notice
  • Protect and ensure the consistency of customer data.
  • Work with developers to design data models, and choose the correct datastores, to support orders of magnitude more customer data and traffic.

Who You Are:

  • 3+ years of experience in software engineering
  • You value correctness and efficiency; you leave no stone unturned when diagnosing production issues
  • You handle infrastructure with code because automation lets you focus on the more difficult and rewarding problems

  • You have created tooling for, or submitted contributions to, an open-source datastore
  • You are fluent in Python or Golang
