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 90,000 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

As a Senior Product Designer on Sentry's Core Product team, you will work with a seasoned squad working on our core Issues workflow experience. This is a high-impact role; not only is Issues the main entry point to Sentry, it's where teams across the company surface actionable issues for our users. You'll be working on fundamental improvements to the experience that will help maximize the workflow for millions of developers.

This design role is highly technical and requires an understanding of common developer workflows. Developers turned designers, take note: if you've got domain experience and can talk frontend and backend, from application down to the function, this may be the role for you.

We are a small but mighty team of designers from companies such as Gusto, Garmin, GitHub, Square, Spotify and more. Sure, we're an elite squad of problem solvers and dot connectors, but we don't let that go to our heads.

In this role you will

  • Have a huge impact by designing core improvements to the largest and most popular parts of Sentry
  • Collaborate closely with a tight-knit group of designers that meet weekly to share work, thoughts, opinions and general rantings
  • Contribute to our component library and design documentation
  • Help developers across the globe be more efficient by maximizing signal and limiting noise
  • Be instrumental in creating a consistent look and feel throughout our products
  • Help define systems to enable our design and frontend teams to be more efficient and collaborative

You’ll love this job if you

  • Love making the lives of engineers and/or your fellow designers easier
  • Enjoy working cross-functionally and building out features alongside developers and product teams
  • Respect the value of design constraints but enjoy pushing their limits
  • Are a strong advocate for UX, UI and visual design
  • Are passionate about open source and wouldn't mind more green boxes on your contribution graph

Qualifications

  • 5+ years of product design experience, or a portfolio that can trick us into believing so (a link to a portfolio or relevant work is required)
  • Frontend experience with HTML/CSS and an understanding of how to design for the web
  • Impeccable taste and knack for attention to detail
  • Experience with conducting user interviews and parsing results
  • Experience with Figma, Sketch, Framer, or other modern design tools
  • Experience with reducing complex concepts into approachable workflows
  • Bonus: Familiarity with Javascript frameworks like React or experience with templating engines
  • Bonus: An active GitHub profile and/or contributions to open source projects
  • Bonus: Experience with SVG, specifically for data visualization
  • Bonus: Experience with version control
  • You've designed and built tools apart of small teams in the past
  • You are familiar with the developer process and workflow, and what annoys them
  • Struggle with identifying as an Engineer or a Designer on your LinkedIn profile

The base salary range (or hourly wage range, if applicable) that Sentry reasonably expects to pay for this position is $170,000 to $195,000.
