Bad software is everywhere, and we’re 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 and 20,000 customers that believe we’re on to something, we're building performance and error monitoring tools that help companies like Disney, Microsoft, and Atlassian spend less time fixing bugs and 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 and Storage team is responsible for the infrastructure that powers all of Sentry's time-series data and searching capabilities across billions of events with sub-second latency. We started this initiative by building Snuba, the primary storage and query service for Sentry's event data powered by ClickHouse, and we're now looking to provide even more visibility and reporting on the terabytes of data that our users send us.
As a Senior Software Engineer, you'll lead efforts to bring Sentry into a new age of data visibility. You’ll do this by expanding the capabilities of our search infrastructure, developing new solutions based on our state of the art storage and increasing the performance and integrity of Sentry’s core data services. You’ll also contribute to the vision of Infrastructure at Sentry and collaborate with Product and other Engineering teams to turn that vision into a reality.
