The Team:

The Recruiting team at Datadog is responsible for scaling the growth of our company size. Our recruiters are strategic business partners, matchmakers, sellers and marketeers, all wrapped into one.

You will have the opportunity to shape, mold, and impact how fast we grow, the way we’re viewed, and the candidate experience.
