Job description

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 a 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 team:

The Fraud & Abuse team works within the Security Engineering organization to protect against threats that challenge the safety of our users and the integrity of our platform.

The opportunity:

As a member of the Fraud & Abuse team, you will take a data-centric, highly scalable approach to identifying and stopping fraud and abuse actors on Datadog’s platform. You will have a direct impact on the safety and security of our platform and our users, and have a chance to work cross-functionally with other departments including the broader Security Engineering organization, Product, Engineering, Compliance, and Customer Support.

You will:

  • Be part of a fairly new security team building from the ground up
  • Build novel detection capabilities to uncover patterns of fraud, abuse and other security threats that affect our platform and users
  • Use custom and third party tools to detect and prevent threats to end user accounts
  • Design alerts and playbooks to automate response efforts
  • Work cross-functionally to implement near real-time detection and mitigation strategies that protect our platform and customers
  • Research and monitor emerging trends, techniques, tactics, and procedures related to platform abuse and threats to our customers
  • Monitor performance and efficacy of existing alerts, playbooks, and detection capabilities
  • Participate in Datadog’s incident response efforts


  • You have experience working with data for analysis, anomaly detection, and monitoring purposes
  • You are fluent in one or more modern coding languages (Python, Go, JavaScript, etc.)
  • You have experience in development, scripting, or automation
  • You want to help keep our platform and our end users safe
  • You are able to work both independently and collaboratively
  • You want to work in a fast, high growth environment

Bonus points:

  • Experience with AWS, GCP, or Azure
  • Knowledge of abuse in modern SaaS applications
