About Datadog

Datadog is the essential monitoring platform for cloud applications. We bring together data from servers, containers, databases, and third-party services to make your stack entirely observable. These capabilities help DevOps teams avoid downtime, resolve performance issues, and ensure customers are getting the best user experience.

Job Description

At Datadog, we’re on a mission to build the best monitoring platform in the world. We operate at high scale—trillions of data points per day—providing always-on alerting, metrics visualization, logs, and application tracing for tens of thousands of companies. Our engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way.


The opportunity:

Together with your team, you will define and drive Datadog’s roadmap for security and compliance features to help our users secure their data and comply with regulations across diverse and complex industries.


You will:

  • Drive the roadmap for security and compliance features by talking to highly technical customers about their needs, mining internal analytics, and performing market research
  • Collaborate with a world-class security team to synthesize numerous goals and controls into concrete requirements
  • Work across infrastructure and development teams to spec and ship novel implementations of security requirements
  • Grow to understand our users deeply; bridge the gap between developers, operations, and security
  • Learn everything about monitoring and pour it back into building a great product
  • Manage relationships across customers, engineering, legal, sales, and support



  • You are pragmatic, tenacious, and detail-oriented; you thrive in complex environments that require collaboration across organizations and teams
  • You have a proven track record as a product manager, ideally at a SaaS or B2B company
  • You enjoy learning about new technologies and how they impact security
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills and the willingness to present and defend your ideas to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • You have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or Engineering or equivalent experience


Bonus points:

  • You understand the fundamentals of security and compliance, such as encryption, identity and access management
  • You’ve worked in a security or compliance vertical, or have designed security features
  • You’ve steered compliance-driven engineering efforts (e.g. GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS)
  • You’ve previously worked in infrastructure, and understand modern DevOps (e.g. CI/CD, cloudops, container orchestration)
