  • Become a subject matter expert in many Datadog product areas
  • Drive product conversations based on needs and problems learned during client interactions
  • Lead high-complexity demos regarding specific and advanced use cases

  • A tinkerer with programming experience and a mid to advance knowledge of Linux
  • Able to work an on-call rotating schedule that requires weekend availability
