About this role

Sentry is looking for our first Community Manager to reach and enable both our commercial and open-source users. Our goal is to help product teams close the insight gap so they can improve development efficiency and drive workflow productivity.

This role will have a major impact in three main areas:

  • Supporting and expanding Sentry's vibrant open-source community
  • Providing technical leadership and product guidance where users congregate
  • Managing our presence at events and our community sponsorships

This role requires a talented and passionate technical marketer who can incorporate elements of developer relations, event management, product marketing, and solution engineering. Sentry is already helping a half-million engineers drive efficiency in their development processes, so community management will be about nurturing that user base with technical insight through new and existing online and offline channels.

You will own pieces of Sentry’s brand ambassadorship and go-to-market, including conferences, sponsorships, online communities, user forums, speakers bureau, social media, and more. You'll collaborate directly with the Product, Marketing, Business Development, and Executive teams to advance Sentry’s story and help represent the voice of the developer.
