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 70,000 organizations 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 Visibility team’s mission is to make Sentry the place to understand the health of your application, find and prioritize investments and resources, and uncover insights to improve your overall performance.

As a Software Engineer on the Visibility team in Toronto, Canada, you will shape the experience of how we visualize our customers tracing and performance data.

  • Tackle application performance issues that arise when our largest customers push Sentry to its limits: identify bottlenecks and optimize our application to improve user experience.
  • Lead and participate in engineering discussions and initiatives to help take the team to the next level.
  • Enjoy customizing their shell and editor to the point where you cannot use the defaults.
  • Relish the idea of making small improvements to a tool that magnify into days of saved time across our customer base.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
