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 is; 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. Our application is built in the microservice architectural style and we aim to use the best language for the task at hand. As we grow, the scale of our technical challenges - and their effect on our customers - continues to increase. We want to ensure we continue to build the best product we can.

    What you have
    • Experience building web applications, especially within a microservices architecture. We'll be most interested in hearing about what you've built
    • Experience solving complex technical challenges. SeatGeek engineers have had to create custom solutions to rather unique ticketing problems, including venue mapping, inventory tracking, and event matching. We'll be excited to hear about challenging problems you've solved
    • Experience with at least one language and comfort with several others
    • Passion for software craftsmanship and product. You have well-considered opinions about how software should work, and hold yourself and your code to a high standard
    • Commitment to your teammates. You enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different experiences and take pride in mentoring and learning from others
    The Tools We Use

    You absolutely do not need experience with all of these, but we thought you might be curious. Tools can be learned, so we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language.

    • Languages: Python (our primary language), C#/.NET Core, Go and PHP
    • Datastores: MySQL, Postgres, Redis, RabbitMQ and Elasticsearch
    • Server: Nginx, Tornado and flask for Python, all running on AWS
    • Monitoring: InfluxDB/Grafana, Graylog, DataDog & PagerDuty
    • Version control: Git
    • Clientside: we make heavy use of React/Redux on the frontend
    Perks
    • 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
