About Datadog:

We're on a mission to build the best platform in the world for engineers to understand and scale their systems, applications, and teams. We operate at high scale—trillions of data points per day—allowing for seamless collaboration and problem-solving among Dev, Ops and Security teams globally for tens of thousands of companies. Our engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way.

The Team:

The Product Design team works on embedded product teams, collaborating closely with PMs and engineers on major product area. Product Design is its own department, independent from engineering or product management. We’re full-stack designers, owning all aspects of our work from research, prototyping, polish, and visual design—and we collaborate closely with engineers on implementation. We work closely together on shared design challenges, and collaborate with our DesignOps team to develop our design system and tooling.

The Opportunity:

We’re looking for a Manager to lead and grow the teams designing our collaboration products including Incident Management, Inbox and Alerting. These products are the main ways Datadog users collaborate with one another—defining alerting rules, responding to incidents in real-time, building a shared understanding of problems when they arise and assigning tasks to respond to them effectively. These product areas emphasize collaboration and user-generated content, and we’re looking for a manager with experience on similar types of products and experiences.

As a Manager, you’ll lead and grow talented teams of designers, and help ensure the right balance of skills and sub-disciplines on your design teams through mentorship and hiring. You’ll help define new products, lay the groundwork for new and exciting experiences, and help scale the design org with new systems and processes.

You Will:

  • Manage both managers and individual contributors, growing teams of exceptional designers and ensuring they deliver high quality, timely work and that they’re happy, motivated, and growing
  • Support and improve the work of your team with regular design reviews and collaboration sessions
  • Own your team’s priorities, planning and execution, connecting them to larger business and product priorities
  • Work with the product team to plan the future of the product
  • Work with other managers across the company to deliver cross-cutting projects
  • Contribute to shaping the future of the design organization

You Are:

  • At least 3 years of experience managing teams of product designers
  • At least 8 years of experience designing digital products
  • You have prior experience working on collaboration tools and user-generated content (e.g. form design)
  • You have prior experience working with design systems at scale
  • Your portfolio includes a proven track record shipping product design work for web applications
  • Your management experience includes OKR planning and feature prioritization
  • You give and receive feedback well, and support and improve the work of your colleagues
  • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a related design field or equivalent experience
  • You want to work in a rapidly changing, high-growth environment

Bonus Points:

  • You have worked on task management and/or real-time collaboration tools
  • You have designed enterprise software and/or developer tools
  • You understand cloud infrastructure and have experience with platforms like AWS, GCP, or Azure

Why You Should Apply:

  • Generous and competitive global and US benefits
  • New hire stock equity (RSUs) and employee stock purchase plan
  • Continuous career development and pathing opportunities
  • Product training to develop an in-depth understanding of our product and space
  • Best in breed onboarding
  • Internal mentor and buddy program cross-departmentally
  • Friendly and inclusive workplace culture
