About Sentry

Bad software is everywhere, and we’re tired of it. Sentry is on a mission to help developers write better software faster, so we can get back to enjoying technology.

With more than $217 million in funding and 90,000 organizations that believe we’re on to something, we're building performance and error monitoring tools that help companies like Disney, Microsoft, and Atlassian spend less time fixing bugs and more time building products. If you like to selfishly build things that make your digital life better, come help us build the next generation of software monitoring tools.

About the role

Engineering organizations use Sentry to triage and debug production software issues. They have custom workflows that are tied deeply with other apps (e.g. GitHub, Jira, Slack, PagerDuty, etc) and they expect Sentry to integrate with these apps. The Ecosystem team maintains a suite of core integrations, and provides an integration platform for other new apps to build against.

We are looking for a Senior Full-Stack Engineer to lead the team. The team focuses on projects that will embed Sentry tightly with our users’ workflows, and bring in new users by surfacing relevant application health and performance insights in those apps. As a technical leader, you are expected to share your domain expertise with the Product Manager and Designer, and collaborate with them to ideate on new features that embed Sentry into other apps.

In this role you will

  • Build and maintain features/integrations with other SaaS services using React (TypeScript) and Django (Python) in our open-source codebase
  • Contribute to the technical goals of the team, and advocate for your ideas to be included in the product roadmap
  • Design and implement scalable systems that can be reused within broad categories of apps (e.g. Slack, Discord, Microsoft Teams for communication)
  • Research external apps, either through documentation or hands-on exploration, to understand the best way to augment their product experience when Sentry integrates with them
  • Write technical specifications for new product features
  • Build tests for your code to maintain a high quality standard for Sentry
  • Set up monitoring and alerting to ensure application health and uptime
  • Collect metrics to quantify the impact of your projects
  • Review code and mentor less-experienced engineers
  • Write user-facing documentation to support new features with help from our technical writing staff

You’ll love this job if you

  • Enjoy exploring new features on the apps that you use, and you keep a finger on the pulse of the latest emerging productivity apps
  • Are a product-minded software engineer. You regard Product and Design as your peers, and you seek collaboration to create innovative workflows
  • Want autonomy on task prioritization. You understand the challenge of shipping new features while maintaining existing functionality, and you have found the balance between them in previous roles
  • Operate with a high level of ownership over the outcomes of your work, and you expect the same from your team
  • Are excited to roll up your sleeves to dive into another team’s codebase to unblock yourself, making good, maintainable changes and earning the recognition of your counterparts
  • Relish the idea of making small improvements to a tool that magnifies into days of saved time across our customer base
  • Want to be the change you seek in the world of dev tooling. You recognize that you are the target user for Sentry, and you want to have an influence on the things that make it into the product


  • 6+ years of experience building user-facing web applications and APIs
  • Bachelors Degree in Computer Science, or related field, and/or relevant experience
  • Have domain expertise in B2B SaaS ecosystems/integrations, or demonstrable strong interest in it
  • Have experience with Django/Python (or similar frameworks and languages)
  • Have experience with React/Typescript (or similar frameworks and languages)
