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 Team

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: accounts with 1000+ users and projects, unique problems around managing and attributing usage, sensitive data privacy needs, international data storage regulations and strong requirements around auditing and access control.

As a Senior Full-Stack Engineer on the Enterprise team, you will ensure that Sentry will work well for our enterprise-level customers. We are building a suite of features to help admins onboard their company, manage their teams' workflow, and see the value that their engineering organization is getting from Sentry. On top of that, the team owns critical services such as authentication and authorization. You will work on building new user experiences that are user-friendly, with impeccable attention to 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 hybrid-cloud 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 they are all 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 engineering, product, sales, and marketing to launch new features.

You'll love this job if you:

  • You want to delve deeper than the application layer to learn about the systems and services powering the APIs that you are using.
  • You work with a high level of ownership over the outcomes of your work, and you expect the same from your team.
  • You 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.
  • You relish the idea of making small improvements to a tool that magnify into days of saved time across our customer base.
  • You 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.


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


  • 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
