Senior Backend Software Engineer- Creator Productivity Tools

THE CHALLENGE
Last year at Eventbrite organizers created 3 million events and we processed 150 million tickets. Behind all of those tickets and events is a number of teams working together to keep our product scalable and available as we grow.

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 Creator Productivity Tools team, you’ll have the opportunity to drive value for a core set of our customers, our most frequent event creators. You’ll use data and research to understand their motivations, and you’ll use that understanding to deliver products that help them meet their goals.
 
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.
