I’ve no idea but cool name - datadog!

I don’t but one of my good friends does- their strategy/ growth group. I understand they’re a pretty good firm, lots of Ex MBB. Comp is typically really good, but culture is very sub team dependent. Q4 is typically insane work hours wise (60-70), but more relaxed otherwise.

Thanks!

Considering a mini pivot from growth/performance marketing to a product marketing role and hoping for a gut check from those who have done both. I'm trying to move away from the transactional culture of growth marketing, which feels like a numbers game. I'm also intrigued by product management and user research, but not ready to invest in that bigger leap, so product marketing seems like a half-step to get more exposure to those teams. Am I on the right track here? Any advice on the transition?
