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
  • 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. You are 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 :

    What you'll do

    • Build interactive and thoughtful UIs in React that solve complex problems and are a delight to use
    • Create 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 essential architectural pieces
    • Contribute to the growth and success of other members of the team

    Who you are

    A developer who has lead product initiatives and has 8+ years of professional experience. 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 feelings about how a webpage should look and feel, and care about the nuances of how users will work 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 experienced design team.
    • Nice to haves: You have some experience with Sketch or Photoshop, and some level of comfort with the following: PHP, Python, Go, 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 thoughtful UIs in React that solve complex problems and are a delight to use
    • Create 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 essential architectural pieces
    • Contribute to the growth and success of other members of the team

    • 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
