Datadog is looking for an Engineering Manager to lead and grow our recently launched CI Visibility product, which represents the “shift-left” expansion of the Datadog platform into the software development process. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a first-to-market product aimed at the brand new space of developer visibility tools. You’ll be responsible for the strategy and execution of the product while developing and growing a team of talented engineers and leaders.

  • Collaborate with platform teams to develop joint roadmaps that provide the underlying primitives required to execute the vision of the product
  • Work closely with product management and design teams to create intuitive, powerful and beautiful user workflows that best leverage the vast amount of information being collected
  • Ensure the development and continuous improvement of a scalable and reliable architecture that can keep up with the growth of the product in a sustainable manner
  • Help grow the team and shape the engineering culture of the Madrid hub

Who You Are:

  • You have worked on large scale distributed systems and/or real-time data processing pipelines and know them from top to bottom
  • You have worked on building beautiful, snappy, data-heavy user interfaces in the past
  • You have experience leading other leaders, as well as multiple hybrid teams, delegating effectively and maintaining a high level of technical and operational excellence
  • You have a track record of motivating teams by setting clear and ambitious goals, and providing the support and coaching required to achieve them
  • You have partnered with product management and design teams in the past to set the vision and strategy for your projects
  • Experienced in working and communicating effectively in a fast-paced, high growth, distributed organization
