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—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:

We’re looking for a Software Engineer for the Software Integrity and Trust team to ensure all client-facing software we build at Datadog has provable integrity and trustworthiness.

You’ll join at an ideal time to make a big impact: the need for robust software integrity is higher than it’s ever been; Datadog as a platform is growing fast and is used very widely. You’ll be involved in every step of the process—defining organization, strategy, and executing while hiring world-class security, data analytics, and software engineers.

You will:

  • Hire and lead teams of talented software, security, and data analytics engineers who fully understand Datadog’s software supply chain, build-pipeline security, delivery mechanisms and configuration management
  • Build provable integrity mechanisms (such as TUF and in-toto) throughout the entire engineering organization
  • Continue to reduce the attack surface of all of Datadog’s client-facing software with a particular forums on the build and supply chain attacks
  • Represent Datadog in the DevSecOps, application security and software integrity community


  • Track record of publishing internal/external design documents on software integrity or controlled execution mechanisms
  • Knowledge of cryptographic methodologies and implementations
  • Known as a subject matter expert in the binary protection and/or integrity fields
  • Proven track record of delivering design ideas into implementations that are leveraged by multiple teams
  • You are fluent in one or more modern coding languages (Python, Go, JavaScript, etc.)
  • Strong interest in security
  • You are able to work both independently and collaboratively
  • You want to work in a fast-paced, high-growth startup environment


Bonus points:

  • CISSP, CISM, OSCP, or similar certifications
  • Passionate about building products that engineers love and believe in the true outcome of DevOps that includes security
  • Familiarity with integrity frameworks such as TUF and in-toto
