THE CHALLENGE
Last year at Eventbrite organizers created 3 million events and we processed 150 million tickets. Behind all of those tickets and events is a number of teams working together to keep our product scalable and available as we grow. Our goal is to be the global platform for live experiences, and that means an onsite experience that is delightful and easy for both organizers and attendees.
THE CULTURE
We're a people-focused Engineering organization: our engineers value working together in small teams to solve big problems, supporting an active culture of mentorship and inclusion, and committing themselves to learn new things daily. Pair programming, weekly demos, tech talks, and quarterly hackathons are at the core of how we’ve built our team and product. We believe in engaging with the community, regularly hosting free events with some of the top technical speakers, and actively contributing to open source software. Our technology spans across web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems.
THE TEAM
The Box Office team is creating the leading global onsite Point of Sale and Customer Service tools for event creators. It focuses on complete box office solutions enabling event creators to provide the highest quality attendee experience. We develop products with a global eye, taking into account local languages, regulations, payment methods, and expectations.
