At True Tickets, we provide software that empowers live-event venues to improve ticket governance. We help venues reclaim control of their tickets from the secondary market to ensure a positive and safe end-to-end patron experience.

We are seeking a Senior SQL Developer & Tessitura Specialist to join our 100% remote team, reporting to the CTO. This is a great opportunity to join a tight-knit, fast-growing startup that is changing an industry.

Who we are

True Tickets is a funded startup. Founded in December 2017, True Tickets has been building a business-to-business software-as-a-service solution since January 2019. We became Tessitura Ecosystem Partners in October 2020 and have already launched our service with enthusiastic clients who are helping us grow as they begin holding outdoor and socially distanced live events. 2021 will be a year of expansion, with a growing list of additional organizations that have signed contracts and are eager to implement the service as the pandemic eases and the live events industry gets back to work.

True Tickets is a secure contactless digital ticketing platform enabled by the IBM Blockchain. Our business-to-business solution easily integrates with Tessitura and other ticketing platforms without replacing existing infrastructure. In addition to facilitating governance into what happens to a ticket after its initial sale, the service opens new revenue and marketing opportunities for venues and their partners. It enhances and completes customer data with information about after-market buying, selling, and sharing of tickets. It enables venues forced to close due to the global pandemic to reopen while protecting their patrons with a contactless experience and enhanced visibility into who is attending each event.

Your role

As a Senior SQL Developer & Tessitura Specialist at True Tickets, your primary responsibility will be designing and building new features that enhance and strengthen the tight SQL-based integration between True Tickets and Tessitura’s ticketing and access control functionality. In addition to custom SQL code housed in the Tessitura database, the integration is supported by a Tessitura web service interceptor built in C# and a series of data syncing applications which utilize the Tessitura REST API. As the chief Tessitura Specialist, you will be expected to collaborate with other developers to provide insight into the Tessitura software and guidance about how to interact with it. Familiarity with C#, .NET, and/or Go will add value to the team.

You will be expected to follow rigorous development practices, inform your work with an evolving understanding of our clients’ needs and requirements, provide input on software architecture, and implement solutions formulated by the team.
