Alex Gordon
Alex Gordon
Principal, Recruiting Programs

Alex's work involves a mix of talent strategy, headhunting, branding, process optimization, interview design, storytelling, and org design - all in deep partnership with engineering leadership and key architects. She joined Datadog in August of 2021.

Her engineering journey began when digital advertising moved away from "microsite + banner" thinking toward software, and deeper experiences. She managed operations and resourcing for an engineering team at a famous ad agency, looking to expand their in-house capabilities. It wasn't long before she was also sourcing and hiring the engineers.

She's since worked with teams and products at the forefront of innovation - from wearables and IoT hubs to music streaming and SaaS platforms. Along the way she's learned from some of the brightest technology, design, and brand minds, furthering her understanding of how great teams (and products) take shape.

While Alex "lives" in engineering, she's also worked with Product Design, UX, and Product Management - really any discipline with a significant product impact.
