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 a company with a healthy appreciation for design, art, and whimsical mischief. A defiant island in the sea of rote calls-to-action and CEO's looking slightly off camera while dubstep plays, Sentry’s Creative team strives to perfect the visual equivalent of puns and hit those Q4 KPIs and OKRs, to get those MQLs so they can’t tell us that FUN doesn’t sell.

Sentry is looking for a Senior Motion Designer for our scrappy and salty group of creatives to create promotional and educational videos that put content before marketing, people before numbers, and sensible chuckles before the ad break. This role reports to the Creative Director within the Creative team as part of Design.

In this role you will:

  • Be the first, do-it-all motion and video person on Sentry’s in-house creative team.
  • Work with people across the company to produce promotional and educational videos that will appear in marketing, documentation, and product.
  • Direct, capture, and edit original footage, audio, screencasts, and physical product images.
  • Produce motion graphics for social media and advertisements, film and produce customer stories, and turn marketing on its head with what we hope will be worth of the name “Webignars
  • Turn user interface footage into compelling motion graphics (as compelling as such a thing can be).
  • Work with our illustration team to animate their work.

You'll love this job if you:

  • You struggle to decide whether you have a career in motion or video.
  • Want to work on a well organized team within a growing tech company.
  • Enjoy an unpredictable and ever changing array of projects, requirements, and challenges.
  • Thrive when given the chance to add character to otherwise assumed-mundane content.

  • 5-7 years of experience creating marketing, documentation, or educational motion graphics and video content.
  • Experienced recording, editing, and directing audio and video content.

  • A pragmatic sense of humor — we specialize in business-viable shenanigans.
  • Experience with developer tools is a bonus, but not required.


  • 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
