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 $127 million in funding and over 80,000 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

The security team is responsible for and committed to securing all things Sentry. From our customers, to our code, and everything in between, the security team is involved in all aspects of the business in pursuit of that goal.

You'll love this job if you:

  • Like being part of a fast growing team
  • Take pride in auditable, automated work over manual processes.

  • Understanding of modern development workflows and SDLC.
  • Prior experience growing bug bounty programs.
  • Well-versed with penetration testing, both on the infrastructure and application fronts.
