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 $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 (and who we're looking for!)

  • You have an ear to the street. You get excited about consolidating insights from gaps in the developer product world, cool or interesting marketing topics, and provide useful insights to shape our product and marketing direction
  • You get how to draw concentric circles around the topics that are most relevant to the core customer’s problems and where they intersect with Sentry’s world including: product experience, code-level observability, and connecting the dots between errors, performance, and metrics
