Senior Frontend Engineer

We've tried to create the simplest, most straightforward way to discover events and buy tickets. We humbly believe that SeatGeek has the best UI in ticketing, but there's always so much room to improve.

We're looking for a developer who's focused on building beautiful and performant user interfaces. The ideal candidate is an engineer who cares as much about the elegance of the interfaces they create as the elegance of the code used to create them.

SeatGeek has an ever-evolving product. Here’s a sample of some of the projects our team has been working on recently:

What We’re Looking For

A senior developer who has lead product initiatives. Most developers at SeatGeek are full stack. You may be comfortable across the stack, but probably specialize in the following:

  • HTML/CSS: This stuff is easy for you. Canvas and WebGL might be where it starts to get interesting, or your ears might perk up at the mention of WebAssembly. We don't bother with IE < 11, and some of your work will be on mobile browsers.
  • JavaScript: You have an excellent grasp of the language. You keep up with the 2017 spec and look for every opportunity to use the new features. You're familiar with at least one modern framework and clientside rendering techniques. We mostly use React with several varieties of Flux and Immutable.js data structures to create our user interfaces, although specific knowledge of React is not a prerequisite.
  • UI & Product Instincts: You have strong feelings about how a webpage should look and feel, and care about the nuances of how users will interact with the product you’re building. We don’t expect you to be a visual designer, but we’re looking for someone who can collaborate with and build on the work of our talented design team.
  • Nice to haves: These are all optional, but ideally you have some experience with Sketch or Photoshop, and some level of comfort with one or more of the following: PHP, Python, Go, and/or Node.js. If you've never worked with any of these in your life but are interested in learning more about them, please still apply.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Build interactive and intuitive UIs in React that solve complex problems and are a delight to use
  • Contribute to creating components and APIs for SeatGeek's frontend libraries
  • Work with complex backend APIs that are already in place
  • Collaborate with the SeatGeek design team and product managers to bring ideas to life
  • Visualize interesting datasets and powerful models with modern frontend technologies
  • Participate in the conceptualization and wireframing of new interfaces
  • Build key architectural pieces to make development more efficient, fun, and pragmatic
  • Contribute to the growth and success of other members of the team

Job Perks

  • A competitive base salary and equity stake in a well-funded early stage company
  • A culture where the product is king
  • A monthly budget to spend on tickets to live events
  • A laid-back, fun workplace with an endless supply of snacks/coffee/beer, frequent team lunches, and social jaunts
  • The opportunity to write code that is used outside of SeatGeek, e.g. we've open-sourced our efficient scrolling library based on UITableView, React Infinite
  • A superb benefits package, including full health/dental/vision
  • Hackathons: scheduled times when everyone drops what they’re doing and builds cool stuff in small groups

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
