Bugsnag helps teams focus on building better software by providing automated crash monitoring for web, mobile, desktop, and server apps. Currently, half of a typical developer’s time is spent finding and fixing bugs; we aim to bring that number as close to zero as possible by automating the entire monitoring process and allowing developers to focus their time on feature development. To do this, we give our users instant visibility into where their code is not executing as expected, we then measure these errors, collect all related data, and give our users the information they need to understand which software issues really matter and need fixing.

Launched in February 2013, Bugsnag processes hundreds of millions of crashes per day for thousands of developers at companies like Airbnb, Lyft, Square, and Shopify. Headquartered in San Francisco, California we have a small team of 28 employees and growing!

We are looking for a software engineer to help deliver an amazing experience to our customers while contributing back to the open-source community. Our open source libraries support detecting crashes and capturing diagnostic data in several programming languages and frameworks. This position involves working with mobile development environments to build new features, help customers troubleshoot problems, review contributions to our open source libraries, and generally make developers’ lives easier.
