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.

About the Role provides a suite of services to diagnose health problems in their customer's applications. These tools are mission-critical to companies who want to respond effectively in fast-paced markets. We make the development and deployment of these tools a safe and enjoyable experience, by maintaining a succinct and helpful continuous integration environment and an informative deployment pipeline.

As a member of the Developer Productivity Team, you will be responsible for the delivery process and the overall developer experience.

  • Streamline the engineering onboarding process via automation, highlighting learning opportunities and an introduction to delivery at Sentry.
  • Measure key metrics of the delivery pipeline and respond to any major degradation of service.

  • Customize most of your tools for efficiency.
  • Believe in automating all the things.
  • Get excited by collaborating directly with your customers.


  • 5+ years of experience as a Software Engineer or similar role.
  • Strong proficiency with Python.
