    The opportunity:

    As Datadog’s Web Browser SDK Engineer, you will collaborate with the product and backend teams to build a Real-User Monitoring product that delights our customers and scales massively. Your users are web developers, just like you, and your code will need to shine! We know that SDKs are difficult to ship: the environment is challenging and you need to be able to navigate these challenges with creativity and confidence from past experiences.

    We expect that you are completely familiar with the Web browser ecosystem and the specific security and privacy challenges that exist. Your SDK code must be safe and robust in this complex environment. In order to build trust with our customers, you need to be comfortable building robust, very well architected and isolated code that works all the time.

    As your code will be in the public eye, and you are building code for other developers to use, you must be comfortable with providing accurate documentation on how a developer should use your code. You will need to review and sometimes be the primary author of documentation for the APIs and code that you produce.

     

    You will:

    • Build and launch the first Datadog Web Browser SDK, used across the world by the users of our customers
    • Work closely with the backend and product teams to deliver the best-in-class browser RUM product
    • Help improve our engineering tooling and practices

    Requirements:

    • You have significant experience in Javascript/Typescript
    • You value code simplicity and performance
    • You have experience debugging complex issues in a variety of browsers
    • You have a BS/MS/PhD in a scientific field or equivalent experience
    • You want to work in a fast, high-growth startup environment that respects its engineers and customers
