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 $217 million in funding and 85,000 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.

Sentry receives over a billion events a day, and processes terabytes of data to return complex aggregations with sub-second latency. To ensure that the things we are building can operate well at scale, we are growing the new Quality Engineering (QE) team that helps others to increase robustness of software we ship.

Quality engineers are responsible for building infrastructure and processes that help our engineering organization to incorporate better quality assurance procedures. For example, one of the goals of the QE team is to make sure that the software we write at Sentry is efficient and continuously tested in a wide range of circumstances.
