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 an engineer who's focused on building beautiful, performant, and inclusive user interfaces. You are an engineer who cares as much about the elegance of UIs as you do about the code and architecture that powers them.

    SeatGeek has an ever-evolving product that's reshaping the way the ticketing industry works. Here's a sample of some of the projects our team has been working on:

    • We launched Rally, a platform that gives millions of fans the information they need about their events and integrates with technology in venues to elevate the live attendance experience.
    • We built Amplify, an industry-leading tool for SeatGeek Enterprise clients to monitor sales and manage prices for major events
    • We laid the foundation for a new, modern architecture that powers SeatGeek.com, and rolled out a responsive redesign on top of it.
    Who you are

    A developer who has led product initiatives and has 4+ years of professional experience in React, Angular, Vue, or similar. You may be comfortable across the stack, but probably specialize in the following:

    • JavaScript: You have an excellent grasp of the language. You keep up with the latest spec and look for every opportunity to use new features. You're familiar with at least one modern framework and clientside rendering technique. We use TypeScript and React to create our user interfaces, although specific knowledge of those is not a prerequisite.
    • UI & Product Instincts: You have feelings about how a web page should look and feel, care about the nuances of how users will work with the product you’re building, and strive to build inclusive and accessible experiences. 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 design tools like Figma or Sketch  and some level of comfort with 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 Do
    • Build interactive, thoughtful, and inclusive UIs in React that solve complex problems and are a delight to use
    • Create components and APIs for SeatGeek's frontend libraries
    • Work alongside backend developers on a full stack team to develop new features and products
    • Collaborate with the SeatGeek design team and product managers to bring ideas to life
    • Contribute to the growth and success of other members of the team
    Perks
    • Equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
    • 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 April 2021 at the earliest. Once it’s again safe to do so, we look forward to welcoming people back to our offices. In the meantime, we’re offering a $1000 reimbursement to create your ideal workspace at home
