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 is used by enterprise-level customers to empower their large engineering organizations to better triage and debug production software issues. Those customers have needs that go beyond smaller customers: organizations with 1000+ users and projects, unique problems around managing and attributing usage, data privacy and storage regulations, and requirements around auditing and access control.

As a Senior Full-Stack Engineer on the Enterprise team, you are joining a team of senior engineers to ensure that Sentry will work well for enterprise-level customers. We work on two types of projects: engineering-initiated projects (e.g. multi-region deployments) and product-driven projects (e.g. quota management tooling). On top of that, we own critical services such as authentication and authorization. You will work on building/improving flows to be user-friendly and efficient, with impeccable attention to UX design details.

In this role you will

  • Create web interfaces using React (TypeScript) and Django (Python) in our open-source codebase
  • Have opportunities to work on high-impact projects that touch the entire stack: from multi-region deployments; across the entire event ingestion pipeline; delving into search and storage systems; and surfacing that data to our customers with our backend and frontend codebases (did we mention that almost all of them are open-source)?
  • Share ownership on the user experience and engineering quality for authentication and authorization services
  • Build tests for your code to maintain a high quality standard for Sentry
  • Write documentation to support new features with our technical writing staff
  • Review code and mentor less-experienced engineers
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the company including infrastructure, security, open-source office, marketing, and sales to launch new features

You'll love this job if you

  • Are a product-minded software engineer who advocates for the end user
  • Operate with a high level of ownership over the outcomes of your work, and you expect the same from your team
  • Want to delve deeper than the application layer to understand the systems and services powering the APIs that you are using
  • Are excited to roll up your sleeves to dive into another team’s codebase to unblock yourself, making good maintainable changes and earning the trust of your counterparts
  • Relish the idea of making small improvements to a tool that magnify into days of saved time across our customer base
  • Want to be the change you seek in the dev tools world. You recognize that you are the target user for Sentry, and you want to have an influence on the things that make it into the product


  • 6+ years of experience building web applications with JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and backend languages like Python
  • Bachelors Degree in Computer Science, or related field, and/or relevant experience
  • Have a strong grasp of React (or similar frameworks), bonus points for experience with TypeScript
  • Have a good understanding of Django (or similar REST frameworks), bonus points for experience designing REST APIs
  • Be passionate about improving the debugging tools that developers use
  • Bonus: You know what SAML and SCIM means without Googling it
