Manager - Talent Acquisition, Europe

THE CHALLENGE
Eventbrite’s goal of building the marketplace for live experiences relies on our foundation of world-class talent and unbeatable company culture.

THE TEAM
Eventbrite Talent Acquisition strives to attract and retain top talent, create a diverse workplace and build rewarding careers. Our values are deeply rooted in building a strong employment brand and creating delightful candidate and hiring manager experiences. We believe people are our greatest asset and the talent we attract drives the success of Eventbrite.  

Our Talent Acquisition team is tight-knit, quick-moving, and fun-loving.  We believe recruiting should be a company-wide effort, candidate experience comes first, and that hiring should be based on relationships and not transactions.
