Team Lead, DevOps Engineering - Demo Engineering

Paris, France

Demo Engineering is a full-stack software engineering and DevOps team. Our work helps to articulate the Datadog vision and product value to our largest prospects, customers, and conference attendees hundreds of times every week. We make the experience of creating Datadog demos simpler, more pleasant, and more productive. Our engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way.

As the Manager for the Demo Engineering team, you will manage a team of engineers with broad skill sets, own significant chunks of demo infrastructure, help design and build systems, and shape product decisions. At times you will get hands on and help build and maintain business critical demo environments that Pre and Post Sales Engineering, Product Management, Marketing, Events, and Support uses on a daily basis around the globe. This is a rare opportunity to work across a uniquely diverse technology stack, including all three major cloud providers and all languages supported by our APM product.  

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.

  • Dig into ambiguous problems and help the team put together viable solutions for reliable and resilient systems, and occasionally help implement them
  • Help keep demo solutions reliable, available, and fast by responding to on-call alerts, investigating issues, performing necessary operations, and delivering fixes
