Product Analytics aims to help developers, product managers and designers understand their users, take data-oriented product decisions and evaluate the impact of technical issues on their customer base. As the Engineering Manager for the Product Analytics Backend team, you'll join a new, fast growing product area. You will support scaling the team, define our technical vision and help shape the product roadmap. Your team will lead the charge on multiple technical challenges: creating a robust and flexible query system to support innovative visualizations, ingest and enrich user journey data from multiple sources and tailor our product automatically to the user's setup.


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.


What You’ll Do: 

  • Manage and grow the Product Analytics Backend team, directly managing 4-6 engineers
  • Define our backend technical roadmap in alignment with product goals and the frontend team
  • Work with our core platform teams to tailor Datadog's storage and query solutions to our needs
  • Create a strong team culture aligned with our engineering standards and our customer focus
  • Participate in hands-on work: Code reviews, design reviews and some coding


Who You Are: 

  • A Software Engineer at heart with a previous experience leading software engineering teams, as a tech lead or people manager
  • Excellent leader with strong interpersonal skills, and the ability to build and lead high-performing teams
  • Interested in working on an early stage project with many challenges to solve and a fast iteration cycle
  • You have a track record of delivering high-quality software products on schedule and collaborating closely with product partners.
  • Strong technician, particularly with Go, Java or SQL, who is interested in remaining a hands-on leader


Datadog values people from all walks of life. We understand not everyone will meet all the above qualifications on day one. That's okay. If you’re passionate about technology and want to grow your skills, we encourage you to apply.
