Software Engineer - Serverless

New York, New York, USA; Boston, Massachusetts, USA


The Team:

The Serverless team is expanding Datadog to build first-class support for Functions-as-a-Service products like AWS Lambda, as well as new, upcoming products from our partners. The team works on high-scale distributed systems to collect data in real-time, as well as compelling, usable UIs that enable our customers to truly understand what’s happening across all their serverless applications. 

The Opportunity:

Serverless computing represents a new programming model for the cloud.

You Are:

  • You have significant experience in one or more languages
  • You value code simplicity and performance
  • You can design architecture to solve problems at high scale
  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a scientific field or equivalent experience
  • You want to work in a fast-paced, high-growth startup environment that respects its engineers and customers.

Bonus Points:

  • You've worked at high scale with systems like Redis, Cassandra, or Kafka
  • You’ve built and monitored a serverless application
  • You’ve worked on widely-used software libraries
  • You have significant experience with Python, Go, or Java
