    I felt supported by Datadog throughout the entire parental leave process. Not only was going on leave easy and stress-free, but I was also able to focus on my child, as I knew everything would be okay until I came back. I was able to spend 8 weeks with my daughter, which allowed me to see all her changes and growth every single day. Also, adding our daughter Bayla to our insurance was not only easy, but also much more affordable than I thought. Datadog treats their employees like they are family, which allows you to focus on yours.

    I’m grateful that Datadog provides such generous physical health benefits. I use my benefits towards my gym membership and was able to purchase some equipment for home use when I’m working from home. Datadog encourages strong mental and physical health and I wouldn’t be able to join a gym downtown without the company’s generosity.
