Front End Software Engineer

THE CHALLENGE
The Nashville engineering team is building the next generation of applications for our event attendees and event creators. We work with cutting-edge front-end technologies to maintain modularity and scalability in a large-scale front-end architecture. We’re building component-based applications centered around React/Redux. Also, no other place in TN will you be working to ship software to an audience like ours at this scale. You’ll learn a lot and hopefully you’ll teach us something too.

THE TEAM
At Eventbrite we tackle tough problems. We learn, grow, and have fun in the process. The women and men of Eventbrite’s Engineering team enjoy facing challenges as individuals, but we are also eager to collaborate and share our knowledge.

As part of the packaging and pricing team you’ll be responsible for curating the way Eventbrite packages solutions for event creators across the world. You will leverage experimentation and A/B testing to iterate quickly and validate key growth hypotheses before investing in building out full solutions. The team will be using data and research to understand what creators value, how we should package that value, and what price they are willing to pay for that value. The packaging and pricing team is uniquely positioned to innovate and experiment with bold new ideas, as well as continuously evolve the product to drive consistent growth.

The team performs demos of the code we ship, we hone our skills through code reviews, and tell the world about it on Eventbrite’s Engineering Blog. We believe in the value of community and the power of live experiences, and regularly host free events with top technical speakers.
