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 is on a mission to help developers monitor and fix crashes in real time. We're looking for a Senior Data Engineer to develop scalable solutions for collecting and analyzing large data sets that drive Sentry’s business. You will help us think better with data, and will work across our organization to quantify our success, discover opportunities, and develop insights.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants to work at the intersection of business and product to help us better understand our enterprise, and have an outsized impact on a hyper-growth company (almost a million users and growing quickly!). If that's you, start thinking of your new hire gif right now!

You’ll help us achieve these goals:

  • Data democracy: Enable non-technical teams to discover data-driven insights.
  • Data visibility: Elevate the role of data in our decision making.
  • Data integrity: Guarantee that conclusions made from data can be trusted.
  • Data intuition: Surface trends and business insights.

As a data engineer at Sentry, you will:

  • Design, build, and manage data marts to satisfy our growing data needs
  • Combine data from disparate sources into a unified & reliable source of truth
  • Ensure data quality and verifying complex queries for correctness
  • Launch and support new data models that provide intuitive analytics to internal customers
  • Interface with internal data consumers to understand data needs

You'll love this role if:

  • You're excited by working with genuine “big data” that doesn't fit in memory
  • You enjoy working cross-functionally with other departments, learning their business processes and how you can accelerate them
  • You draw deep satisfaction from operating in a high-impact role that affects the entire organization

You'll be successful in this role if you have:

  • 3+ years experience as a Data Engineer or similar, working with large data sets
  • Experience building visualizations for business intelligence
  • Expertise in SQL (you can run a query with your eyes closed!)
  • Expertise with at least one of the following: Spark, Kafka, Kinesis, BigQuery, Redshift, Airflow
  • BS in Computer Science or related quantitative field
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills and ability to articulate technical concepts clearly and succinctly
