Lisbon, Portugal; Portugal, Remote;

As a Cloud Security Engineer you will partner with different stakeholders across the organization to secure our cloud infrastructure. We work closely with engineers across various domains of the Datadog infrastructure stack, driving a culture of empowering engineers to have strong security ownership of their products and services through the development of security resources and tools that help promote a secure by default model. Not only do we partner with engineering teams to identify security risks that can impact our overall security posture, we work alongside them and collaborate to develop security solutions and standards to mitigate these risks to our customers and their data. 

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.

  • Empathize with the full spectrum of our customers and our engineers by advocating for effective solutions that scale with the needs of our business and our customers. 
  • Build security controls that detect, prevent, and correct cloud vulnerabilities in our very complex and challenging environment.
  • Leverage and influence the direction of Datadog’s home-grown security products to secure our infrastructure, and provide internal feedback that enables our teams to improve the products for ourselves and our customers.

Who You Are: 

  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a Computer Science, Engineering or related scientific field or equivalent professional experience.
  • Passionate about advocating for and implementing solutions to complex problems, at-scale, in a large multi-cloud environment.
