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

Sentry started life in 2008 as an open-source side project, and we work hard to stay true to our roots as we scale. We offer a self-hosted version of the Sentry product that is feature complete, and as open source as we can make it. Sentry is built by developers for developers, so our engineers and product managers are active on open-source channels such as GitHub and Discord, engaging in real conversations to make Sentry even better than it already is.

The Open Source Program Office (OSPO) exists to maintain Sentry’s strong relationship with the open source community. You will be the first Software Engineer to join the OSPO, which started three years ago with a focus on release engineering and community automation, and is now rebuilding as a proper OSPO to support teams across the company such as Engineering, Legal, Support and Marketing.

In this role you will:

  • Be the primary maintainer of self-hosted Sentry.
  • Build and maintain automations using GitHub Actions and Apps.
  • Collaborate with other teams on Sentry’s software publishing pipeline.
  • Support projects in funding, compliance, developer experience, and more.

You’ll love this job if you:

  • Believe in open source and enjoy building open source community
  • Want to help define the state of the art in commercial open source.
  • Are looking for high autonomy / high impact on a new team.


  • 2+ years experience as a software engineer
  • Experience with Docker, DevOps, Python, JavaScript, Shell scripting, YAML
  • Experience maintaining open source projects


  • 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
  • Catered lunches
  • Company events (Hack Weeks, All Hands, quarterly social events) and friends and family events
  • Relocation assistance - you are living in, or willing to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area
