About Sentry

Bugs aren’t great, but your code can be.

Developers are at the core of virtually every organization, managing the software that makes modern businesses tick. We’re creators, problem-solvers, troubleshooters, puzzle-piece-joiners.

Sentry co-founders David Cramer and Chris Jennings are no different. They were compelled to solve a specific problem: better, more digestible error visibility and alerting. Through late nights and long weekends, their dedication to an open-source side-project manifested into Sentry.

Sentry helps all software teams create the best software, faster.

Sentry empowers developers to quickly triage and resolve issues while reducing everything-is-on-fire stress, chaos, and potential financial loss, by providing cross-stack visibility and deep context about errors. Each day, we process billions of exceptions from some of the most popular products on the internet.

1,000,000+ total users
40+ billion errors per month
50,000+ customers
Dropbox
Airbnb
PayPal
Uber
Microsoft

Works for every stack at any scale

The team behind Sentry built and shipped the software behind many fine brands, a short sampling of which will no doubt impress and delight you. We were occasionally useful at Dropbox. Drew pictures at GitHub. Nodded sagely during meetings at Atlassian. Made diagrams on white boards at PagerDuty. Ran Disqus into the ground.

What began as an open-source project to deal with our founders’ (and every developer’s) propensity for making mistakes has evolved into the world’s leading error-tracking platform — open-source or otherwise.

Tech giants like Square and Uber run Sentry. As do tech titans like Dropbox and PayPal. Also, tech goliaths like Reddit and Microsoft. Plus the New York Times and Peloton and Wix and a ton of other companies. More than 50,000, to be semi-precise.

Sentry offers SDKs for every framework, platform, and language, making it incredibly easy to integrate into any application and stack.


Being smart is better than being dumb

We’re a company of engineers building software for other engineers. We know firsthand the kind of technical debt and other bullshit you have to deal with as your company scales. By closing the gap between developers and end users, Sentry helps you focus on what you do best: getting into heated arguments on Slack. And also on what you do second best: building ok software.
