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

Sentry is used by enterprise-level customers to empower their large engineering organizations to better triage and debug production software issues. Those customers have needs that go beyond smaller customers: accounts with 1000+ users and projects, sensitive data privacy/security needs, international data storage regulations and strong requirements around auditing and access control.

As a Senior Full-Stack Engineer on the Enterprise team, you will ensure that Sentry will work well for our enterprise-level customers. We built a suite of features to help admins onboard their company, manage their teams' workflow, and see the value that their engineering organization is getting from Sentry. You will work on product-focused projects that will be useful for these customers (e.g. project health analysis, detecting bad canary releases) alongside PMs and designers.

In this role you will

  • Scope, plan, and own the backend implementation for features or tools that will make Sentry better for all of our largest customers in our open-source codebase
  • Design and build intuitive and robust APIs used by frontend engineers and/or customers
  • Own the engineering quality for the team’s critical services, especially the APIs that are used for provisioning at scale
  • Have opportunities to work on high-impact projects that touch the entire stack: from multi-region deployments; across the entire event ingestion pipeline; delving into search and storage systems; and surfacing that data to our customers with our backend and frontend codebases (did we mention that they are open-source?)
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the company including engineering, product, sales, and marketing to launch new features
  • Review code and mentor less-experienced engineers to help them grow
  • Build tests for your code to maintain a high standard of quality for Sentry
  • Set up monitoring and alerting to ensure application health and uptime
  • Write documentation to support new features with our technical writing staff

You'll love this job if you

  • Are a product-minded software engineer. You regard Product and Design as your peers, and you seek collaboration to create innovative workflows
  • Operate with a high level of ownership over the outcomes of your work, and you expect the same from your team
  • Want to delve deeper than the business-logic layer to learn about the search and storage systems powering the APIs that you are using
  • 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
  • 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 professional engineering experience, building web applications at scale
  • Bachelors Degree in Computer Science, or related field, and/or relevant experience
  • Experience working on data modeling and relational schema design
  • Experience designing APIs that are robust, reliable, and predictable
  • Experience owning a technical project for its entire lifecycle: from design and implementation, to testing and deployment
  • Experience with Python/Django or Typescript/React is a plus. Languages/frameworks can be learnt
  • Be passionate about improving the debugging tools that developers use
  • Bonus: You know the acronyms SAML, SCIM, LDAP without googling it
