An Insider's view of Datadog

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Purpose-oriented culture is central to our mission at Datadog. The atmosphere we’ve created fosters healthy competition and support for one another. Open communication across the floor encourages cross-team collaboration, and we’re always pushing each other to be the best we can be.

Mike

Senior Commercial Account Executive

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with forecasting: an activity where you outline what you need to accomplish for the day, week, or month. I then dive into prospecting, personalizing my messaging, and researching industry trends. I end the day with my team by sharing findings, sharing what roadblocks I came into contact with, and how to defeat them for the next day!

Stephanie

Sales Development Representative

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Datadog as an Account Executive, moved into a Senior AE role, and now am a Manager! I've learned so much in the past 1.5 years. Datadog gave me an opportunity based on my abilities, helped me to excel at those skills and then develop them into leadership. I know my future here will be great thanks to the support focused environment.

The majority of our sales leadership team in Boston has been promoted from within and we expect this to continue as we reach new heights.

As an advocate for the customer, my teams solve customer problems, listen to feedback, and ensure the customer is getting the most value out of the different products we offer.
