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 $67 million in funding and 20,000 customers 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 one of many tools developers use to create and ship high-quality production software. The Ecosystem team is tasked with connecting Sentry with this wider set of developer tools, by continually expanding and improving our API platform, as well as building first-class integrations with the industry's most popular products (GitHub, Slack, etc.). The goal: making sure Sentry works nicely with every team's preferred development workflow.

As a senior member of the Ecosystem team, you'll take on a lead role in growing our developer API platform and first-class integrations. This platform doesn't just allow external integrators to communicate with our REST API; it lets them augment the in-application user experience with new product capabilities. You'll work directly with major partners and 3rd-party developers to validate your progress, ensure the success of integrators, and ultimately deliver a world-class integration platform.

If you want to work in a high-leverage role where you're not just building product features – you're building a platform in which anybody can build on top of – this could be the job for you.

In this role you will:

  • Build and lead technical execution plans that balance delivering products while ensuring a high software quality bar.
  • Work alongside Product and Engineering to develop a long-term roadmap for your team.
  • Improve the long-term code quality of Sentry's API and Integration Platforms.
  • Ensure Sentry's first-class integrations remain best-in-class (GitHub, Slack, etc.).
  • Monitor your services for reliability and performance.
  • Review code and mentor less-experienced teammates to grow our talent.
  • Write strong external documentation to help developers confidently build on our platform (we use Swagger).
  • Assist external partners building integrations on our platform to ensure their success.

You'll love this job if:

  • You want to develop an API that other software developers point to as an example of how to do this correctly.
  • You're considerate in ensuring that deployed API changes don't regress the experience of live clients.
  • You've either researched or implemented evolving patterns in API development, like GraphQL, API streaming, etc.
  • You solve customer problems at the right layer, either by stepping out of your comfort zone and writing frontend code or working with the team that owns the underlying layer.
  • You derive professional satisfaction by helping other engineers learn and grow.

Qualifications

  • 7+ years experience as a Software Engineer or similar role.
  • At least 4 years professional experience with Python or similar (e.g. Ruby, Node, etc.).
  • You have prior experience developing public-facing APIs.
  • You write robust, well designed code while understanding the long-term tradeoffs of your choices.
  • Bonus: you have experience in building an integration platform.

Benefits

  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity
  • 100% medical, dental, and vision coverage for employees, 75% company-paid for dependents
  • Monthly commuter subsidy
  • 401k program
  • Learning & Development stipend
  • Charitable matching program
  • Generous parental leave policy
  • Flexible working schedule and vacation policy, work from home policy, and real work/life balance
  • Friday catered lunches
  • Company events (Hack Weeks, All Hands, quarterly social events) and friends and family events
  • Relocation assistance
