How does your team reward individual success?

Success is rewarded in many ways! Datadog does an amazing job making it known that each individual’s success is important & recognized through company wide communication. Opportunities such as Presidents Club & Top Dog Awards keep motivations high. Above all, growth opportunities are greater than anything I've seen through my professional career.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Datadog set the stage for my growth by allowing me to forge new paths, take on new positions, move across the country & enter into management. I started as an SDR, became a Team Lead, moved into the AE seat, became a Senior AE, and now am a SDR Manager! I hope to provide similar foundational development and inspire new employees the same way I was.
