powertofly approved What SeatGeek Has to Offer:

SeatGeek was built in 2009 as the only mobile ticketing marketplace created with fan experience top of mind. SeatGeek is transforming the way fans buy and sell their tickets to their favorite live events. They also offer benefits like:

  • $120/month to spend on tickets to live events
  • Health/dental/vision benefits
  • Annual subscriptions to Citibike, Spotify, & Meditation Services
  • The ticketing industry is messy, complex, and makes attending live events more difficult than it needs to be; we believe a thoughtful application of software can fix that.

    We’re looking for bright, curious engineers who want to help millions of people experience the thrill of live entertainment. SeatGeek is a product-centric organization that deploys code into production multiple times per day. As our product continues to grow, so does the scale of our technical challenges, and their impact on our customers. We want to ensure that we continue to build delightful experiences for fans all over the world.

    With live events across the globe currently locked down or limited, the ticketing industry has never had more challenges to face or complexity to unravel — socially distanced seating, timed event entry, mass reschedulings, and more.

    But while the majority of live events are on pause, we’re working hard to make sure SeatGeek is positioned to help people get together and experience more live as things open back up… come help us build the software that powers it all!

    We are looking for people who:

    • Plan to graduate no later than Spring 2021 with a degree in Computer Science or a related field
    • Have relevant experience pushing code to production
    • Are excited by understanding software and figuring out how it should work
    • Enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different experiences and take pride in mentoring and learning from others

    To see the Entry Level roles we currently have available, take a look at the descriptions below. In your application, you’ll have the chance to specify up to 3 roles that you’d like to be considered for.

    Platform

    As SeatGeek's product continues to evolve, so does the scale of our challenges and the customer base we serve. To support these expansions, our application engineers need a state-of-the-art platform that they can use to build, test, and deploy code quickly, while upholding high quality. We’re looking for engineers who want to design, build, and evolve tools used by our teams to create products that make it easier for millions of people to experience the thrill of live entertainment. 

    What You’ll Do

    • Build solutions to hard software engineering problems, such as the application of Virtual Machines and Containers and Cloud Computing on AWS
    • Work with product engineers to understand and optimize their workflow
    • Collaborate with product managers and internal stakeholders to bring ideas to life
    • Programming mostly in Python and Go, although specific knowledge of those is not a prerequisite
    Android

    SeatGeek’s mission is to help the world experience more live—concerts, sports, theater, and more—and these days we expect to use our phones to do just about everything, so our Android app is essential to fulfilling that vision. The Android engineering team at SeatGeek features active members of the Android community working to provide second-to-none mobile experiences. We use Kotlin, Jetpack, MVI and more, and follow best practices and Google guidelines to build a modern and scalable application.

    What You'll Do

    • Work with a team of developers that are passionate about building applications for the Android platform
    • Collaborate with backend engineers, design & product teams to build an experience that stands out among the best applications on Android
    • Ensure the Android team is always on the forefront of adopting new tools, technologies and processes to make our development as pragmatic & efficient as possible
    Machine Learning

    We’re looking for an engineer who wants to build cutting-edge technologies leveraging a decade of ticketing supply data. We use Python, Tensorflow/Tensorflow-Serving, and Stan although specific knowledge of those is not a prerequisite.

    What You'll Do

    • Integrate Machine Learning algorithms into our production software stack, including but not limited to web services, reporting databases, and partner ecosystem services
    • Explore historic data and build probabilistic models such as ones that predict ticket demand, maximize marketplace revenue, and generate Deal Scores
    • Research and integrate with new data sources that provide value in predicting changes in ticket demand
    Perks
    • Equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
    • A superb benefits package that supports health/dental/vision. We also provide annual subscriptions to Headspace, Ginger.io, and One Medical
    • A focus on transparency. We have regular company meetings and Q&A panels where employees can chat openly with teams across SeatGeek, our co-founders, and external guests from the industry
    • Although this perk is currently on pause, we can’t help but talk about it. SeatGeek employees receive a monthly ticket-purchase stipend, and we cannot wait to get back to safely attending the live events that we so dearly miss
    • Covid-19 Response: We’re not expecting employees to return to the office until July 2021 at the earliest. Once it’s again safe to do so, we look forward to welcoming people back to our offices.
