Paris, France; Dublin, Ireland; Madrid, Spain;

The Enterprise IT Security team is focused on securing the endpoints, applications, infrastructure, services and networks that Datadog employees rely on on a daily basis. This includes thousands of devices running macOS, Windows, and Linux, as well as SaaS services like Google Workspace and Zoom, hosted services running in AWS, and our office networks.   As the Senior Enterprise IT Security Engineer, you will collaborate cross-functionally with a large group of security professionals who build tools and systems to help us realize our mission of keeping Datadog safe.

What You’ll Do:

  • Serve as a subject matter expert to assist in responding to security incidents on Datadog’s IT infrastructure.
  • Collaborate with other Datadog security teams to improve threat intelligence, incident response, vulnerability management, and the development of new standards and procedures.
  • Use machine learning and LLMs to develop systems for improved threat  detection and response, data classification, DLP, and the reduction of risk.
  • Contribute to Datadog's enterprise security roadmaps by staying up to date with the latest security threats and making recommendations for improving our security posture.
  • Educate employees on the importance of data security and advise them on best practices for maintaining a secure environment.

Who You Are: 

  • You possess several years of experience using endpoint protection, threat and anomaly detection (EDR, XDR, SIEM), and vulnerability management systems.
  • You have demonstrable knowledge in hardening and troubleshooting MacOS, Linux, Windows, iOS and Android devices.
  • You are proficient in the automation and integration of cloud-based systems using high level languages like Python or Go, IaC, and CICD pipelines.
  • You have extended experience with identity and access management frameworks and protocols, including SAML, OAUTH, ODIC and SCIM.
  • You have hands-on experience operating and securing SaaS platforms, and IaaS platforms like AWS, GCP or Azure.
  • You have experience in complex threat hunting or incident response processes through multiple interconnected systems.
  • You possess excellent communication skills and are capable of working collaboratively with a globally distributed team while independently managing projects, and prioritizing and reducing risks.
  • You have strong analytical and problem-solving skills, with the ability to reason about complex data security challenges.
