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 $217 million in funding and 100,000+ 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

At sentry, the Data Engineering team is focused on tackling the biggest challenges in scaling our business through building a robust ecosystem of data tools for decision making, unlocking new opportunities with data through platform improvements, and setting the bar for quality in data development.

As the Engineering Manager of the Data Engineering team, you'll lead a group of engineers dedicated to enhancing, monitoring, and refining our data pipelines. At the same time, you'll establish the team's ethos, nurturing an environment conducive to growth and success.

In this role you will

  • Grow and develop a team of talented and motivated engineers with high expectations around individual ownership

  • Set direction for the team, anticipating strategic and scaling-related challenges

  • Foster a healthy and collaborative culture that embodies our values

You’ll love this job if you

  • Find fulfillment in mentoring others, cultivating growth, and fostering excellence within your team
  • You are a self sufficient do-er: someone who enjoys ownership and can proactively and effectively work cross-functionally to make progress
  • You are comfortable with the pace and dynamic environment of our actively growing business
  • You enjoy working cross-functionally with other teams, learning their missions and how you can empower them to make data driven decisions


  • 7+ years industry experience in software engineering, with experience working in a data focused role
  • 2+ years of people management experience
  • A strong understanding of data engineering principles, methodologies, tools and techniques
  • Experience developing production-grade Python code
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills and an ability to articulate technical concepts clearly and succinctly
  • Experience with one or more parts of our stack (BigQuery, GCP, Airflow, Kafka)
