About Sentry

Sentry's mission is to empower software development teams to build better products, faster. Our crash reporting platform helps tens of thousands of software teams discover, triage, and resolve production software issues, so they can spend less time debugging and more time building software.

About the Team

As a product engineer, you'll join a cross-functional group of software engineers and designers that are responsible for the end-user operation of Sentry. Not only do product engineers build the user interfaces that software developers see and touch, they contribute to the APIs and server logic that power those interactions. If you want to build and improve product features that empower software development teams to do their best work, all while writing open source code, we'd like to talk to you.

Sentry is used by tens of thousands of developers, and as part of our small team, you'll find countless challenges to grow and succeed. If you have a strong technical background and want to engage publicly with the software development community, we feel this is a fantastic opportunity.
