What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Currently, our biggest challenge and most exciting opportunity lies in breaking into new markets in Latin America. My team welcomes this challenge!

What does career growth look like on your team?

The skills learned as a Datadog Sales Development Representative will help grow & shape you immensely. While there is a clear sales-focus career path here, growth isn't limited.
