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

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
