The Sentry Story

Our Co-Founders David Cramer and Chris Jennings realized that developers are at the core of virtually every organization, building and managing the software that makes modern businesses tick. With the developers' workflow in mind, they started an open-source side project that has now turned into a well-loved product used by 1M+ developers.

It is our mission to empower software development teams to build better products, faster. Our application monitoring platform helps millions of developers discover, triage, and resolve software issues, so they can spend less time debugging and more time doing what they love... building software.

About the Team

The Growth Team at Sentry is enabling exponential user growth by building end-to-end experiences, identifying optimizations to improve user activation, and constantly innovating new ways to expand Sentry’s value proposition. This may just be one of the reasons why developers across the world love Sentry.

This is a multi-disciplinary team that uses data science, product, marketing, design and engineering to drive exponential growth for Sentry, and runs experiments to measure what effective growth approaches of the future could look like.
