About Sentry

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 $127 million in funding and 68,000 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

As a Senior Software Engineer, Native, on our client infrastructure (SDK) team, you'll join a cross-functional group of Software Engineers that is responsible for the client facing operation of Sentry. This includes building and maintaining SDK libraries, our event processing pipeline, and new services like Symbolicator. This means you will be involved in the design and evolution of both external and internal services, as well as create new mission critical software at Sentry.

If you want to build and improve product features that empower software development teams to do their best work, all while writing open source code, this could be the role for you.

In this role you will:

  • Develop first-class clients for native languages like C and C++, as well as integrations for popular frameworks in Gaming, IoT and high performance applications.
  • Work in the Client Infrastructure team to improve and evolve our processing pipeline and the services we use to scale Sentry.
  • Puzzle over unique challenges in the fields of compilers, debugging, operating system internals, low-level optimization, and distributed systems.
  • Use a variety of programming languages, systems, and technologies to own and solve problems related to mission critical software of Sentry (Rust / C++ — but also Python and JavaScript.)
  • Collaborate with Infrastructure and Operations teams to build solutions that scale (we process over a billion events every day.)
  • Write unit and integration tests that ensure the correctness of your work, as well as strong documentation to help educate both peers and customers.

You'll love this job if:

  • You take pride in building features that don't just work, but are also delightful to use.
  • You like to take challenges that you don't see every day, daily.
  • You care about writing highly performant code.
  • You build a product by developers for developers.
  • You join a modern software development team that iterates and ships code rapidly.
  • You contribute to open source full-time — our product is entirely Open Source.
  • You work with collaborative, thoughtful engineers who push themselves and others to do better.

Examples of projects our team has worked on:


  • 5+ years relevant experience.
  • Experience in writing high performance native server-, desktop-applications or libraries.
  • Experience in programming languages (C/C++, Rust, Go etc.)
  • Bonus points for experience with Python, JavaScript or Mobile platforms.
  • Good written and spoken English communication skills.
  • Live in the Vienna, Austria area or are willing to relocate.


  • Contribute to an open source product used by almost a million of your fellow developers and tens of thousands of companies.
  • Be part of an experienced and renowned team that cares a lot about diversity, inclusivity, and quirkiness.
  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity.
  • Commuter subsidy.
  • Flexible working schedule.
  • 5 weeks of paid vacation.
  • Austrian healthcare.
  • Pet friendly office.
  • Company events (Hack Weeks, All Hands) and visits to our SF headquarters.
  • Relocation assistance.
