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 Role / Impact

Sentry's mission is to empower software development teams to build better products, faster. Our error monitoring platform helps over a million developers discover, triage, and resolve production software issues, so you can spend less time debugging and more time doing what you love: building software.

You get to write real code on real projects, no fetching coffee required. We are looking for interns who are excited about jumping right out of school and right into impacting an expansive (and expanding) user base. If you want to build something that makes life for you and your fellow developers easier, start thinking of your new hire gif now!

You'll love this job if:

  • You want to experience being a full-time engineer on a team and not "just an intern"
  • You value mentorship and being able to work closely with and learn from world-class engineers
  • You want to join a modern software development team that iterates and ships code rapidly
  • You want to contribute to open source full-time
  • You are looking for a supportive, inclusive, and diverse team that celebrates your individuality

As an engineering intern at Sentry, you'll be paired with a mentor for the summer, and become an integral team member on our Applications team or Infrastructure team:

  • Our Applications team is a cross-functional group of software engineers and designers that are responsible for the end-user operation of Sentry, building the user interfaces that over 1 million software developers see and touch, and contributing to the APIs and server logic that power those interactions.
  • Our Infrastructure team helps scale Sentry to support our fast-growing user base, and assist in making important back-end technology and implementation decisions. We have a few teams that help us do this. Our R&D team owns the end-to-end event lifecycle, from event capture to event ingestion and processing, and event storage and querying. Our engineering operations team keeps our services up and helps engineers with infrastructure needs, while the business operations team creates tools to facilitate data-driven decision-making.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
