About this role

Sentry is on a mission to help developers monitor and fix crashes in real time. We're looking for a Senior Data Engineer to develop scalable solutions for collecting and analyzing large data sets that drive Sentry's business.

Data democracy:  Enable non-technical teams to discover data-driven insights
Data visibility:  Elevate the role of data in our decision making
Data integrity:  Guarantee that conclusions made from data can be trusted

As Sentry's first Senior Data Engineer, you will:

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants to work at the intersection of business and product to help us better understand our enterprise, and have an outsized impact on a hyper-growth company (almost a million users and growing quickly!).
