The Fabric Gateways team is responsible for building and maintaining a suite of managed proxy fleets that allow developers to focus on building and improving products and services, without being networking experts. We enable Datadog engineers to expose their services to both internal and external customers in a secure, reliable and scalable way without worrying about network interactions in distributed systems.

  • You have backend programming experience (e.g. C++, Go, Rust) and have architected, built, and operated distributed systems to solve problems at scale.
  • You have a solid understanding of networking fundamentals (TCP/IP, TLS, HTTP, DNS) as well as experience in troubleshooting Linux and network performance. 
  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a Computer Science, Engineering or related scientific field or equivalent professional experience.

What you will do:

  • Lead and cultivate a team of engineers with a diverse skill-set, including performance management and career development.
  • Hold responsibility for the technical output of your team in terms of quality and quantity.
  • Identify the highest impact initiatives and ensure that the team is focused on delivering those on clear timelines.
  • Lead your team’s roadmap by defining inspiring objectives and breaking them down into well-defined key results.
  • Ensure that the services you own have accurate SLIs and are constantly available at well-defined SLOs.
  • Contribute to the team’s technical direction and architectural decisions.
  • Stay in touch with your team’s code, and roll up your sleeves when needed to unblock your team by writing code or troubleshooting issues.
