The Overview

We're looking for smart, curious engineers who want to help millions of people experience the thrill of live entertainment. The ticketing industry is messy, complex and ultimately makes attending live events more difficult than it should be; we believe a thoughtful application of software can fix that.

SeatGeek is a product-centric organization that deploys code into production multiple times per day. Our application is built in the microservice architectural style and we strive to use the best language for the task at hand. As we grow, the scale of our technical challenges - and their impact on our customers - continues to increase. We want to make sure we continue to build the best product we can.

What We're Looking For

  • 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 faced and solved
  • Confidence 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

The Tools We Use

You absolutely do not need experience with all of these, but we thought you might be curious. Tools can be learned, so we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language.

  • Languages: Python (our primary language), C#/.NET Core, Go and PHP
  • Datastores: MySQL, Redis, RabbitMQ and Elasticsearch
  • Server: Nginx, Tornado and flask for Python, all running on AWS
  • Monitoring: InfluxDB/Grafana, Graylog, DataDog & PagerDuty
  • Version control: Git
  • Clientside: we make heavy use of React/Redux on the frontend

Perks: 

  • A competitive base salary and equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
  • A laid-back, fun workplace designed to facilitate collaboration and company wide events
  • $120/mo to spend on live events tickets
  • A superb benefits package that supports health/dental/vision
  • A focus on transparency. We have regular team lunches and Q&A panels where employees can chat openly with teams across SeatGeek, our co-founders, and external guests from the industry
  • Annual subscriptions to Citibike, Spotify, and meditation services
