About Sentry

Bad software is everywhere, & were 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 $67 million in funding & 20,000 customers that believe were on to something, we're building performance & error monitoring tools that help companies like Disney, Microsoft, & Atlassian spend less time fixing bugs & 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

The Search & Storage team is responsible for the infrastructure that powers all of Sentry's time-series data & searching capabilities across billions of events with sub-second latency. We started this initiative by building Snuba, the primary storage & query service for Sentry's event data powered by ClickHouse, & we're now looking to provide even more visibility & reporting on the terabytes of data that our users send us.

As a Software Engineer, you'll lead efforts to bring Sentry into a new age of data visibility. Youll do this by expanding the capabilities of our search infrastructure, developing new solutions based on our state of the art storage & increasing the performance & integrity of Sentrys core data services. Youll also contribute to the vision of Infrastructure at Sentry & collaborate with Product & other Engineering teams to turn that vision into a reality.

If you're looking for a high-impact role where you move a company from processing "big data" to "really big data", this could be the job for you.

  • Expand Search & Storage's impact on delivering world-class data delivery.
  • Architect & automate services & systems to meet the demand of scale.
  • Make architectural decisions to balance the wants & needs of Product & Engineering teams.
  • Maintain & grow the team's code quality initiatives by regularly reviewing code & contributing to design decisions.

  • Improve the approachability of the codebases that Search & Storage holds domain over.
