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 , 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.
