The ticketing industry is messy, complex and makes attending live events more difficult than it is; we believe a thoughtful application of software can fix that.
We're looking for bright, curious engineers who want to help millions of people experience the thrill of live entertainment. SeatGeek is a product-centric organization that deploys code into production multiple times per day. As we grow, the scale of our technical challenges - and their effect on our customers - continue to increase. We want to ensure we continue to build the best product we can.
What you have
Several years of experience building web applications, especially within a microservices architecture. We'll be most interested in hearing about what you've built
Experience solving complex technical challenges. SeatGeek engineers have had to create custom solutions to rather unique ticketing problems, including venue mapping, inventory tracking, and event matching. We'll be excited to hear about challenging problems you've solved
Experience with at least one language and comfort with several others
Passion for software craftsmanship and product. You have well-considered opinions about how software should work, and hold yourself and your code to a high standard
Commitment to your teammates. You enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different experiences and take pride in mentoring and learning from others
