Paris, France; Madrid, Spain; Nantes, France; Lyon, France; Bordeaux, France; Sophia Antipolis, France; Grenoble, France; Montpellier, France;

At Datadog, we process millions of monitors every minute, alerting our customers when configured thresholds are crossed. Engineers across the world trust us to alert them when necessary, so our Alerting stack needs to be reliable and scalable.

The Alerting Platform Automation team's main goal is to ensure our development team can code, build and deploy safely and reliably. We design and operate automation systems that can reproduce manual actions, reducing the toil as much as possible.

We measure and test our applications, ensuring they are running correctly and efficiently. We develop tooling to help our team and our users to better manage our platform, removing any friction whenever possible.

Our team is looking for a Senior Software engineer to help us maintain and scale the Alerting platform. In this position, you’ll interact daily with our users, understanding their needs, defining solutions, building necessary tooling and communicating with all our stakeholders appropriately.

At Datadog, we place value in our office culture - the relationships and collaboration it builds and the creativity it brings to the table. We operate as a hybrid workplace to ensure our Datadogs can create a work-life harmony that best fits them.

What You’ll Do: 

  • Build automation systems to replace all manual and repetitive tasks.
  • Work with the Alerting engineering teams to understand their needs and provide solutions.
  • Identify reliability bottlenecks, then design solutions to mitigate or eliminate them entirely.
  • Test and measure our systems to ensure they are able to operate efficiently and scale automatically
  • Modify our applications, allowing them to degrade gracefully and self-heal in case of any issue.

Who You Are:

  • You are able to analyse a problem, identify the core problem(s) and propose short-term and long-term solutions.
  • You are a team-player, able to work easily with your team members or people from other development teams.
  • You are able to communicate appropriately to your audience, from fellow devs to the top management
  • You like to discover new technologies and are willing to learn new things
  • You think that infrastructure and code are equally important
  • Bonus points: knowledge of Kubernetes
  • Bonus points: advanced knowledge of Python or Golang
  • Bonus points: knowledge of CI/CD systems, especially Gitlab

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.
