THE CHALLENGE
Eventbrite is the leading global ticketing and event technology platform, powering over five million live experiences and 300 million tickets every year. We empower creators of events of all shapes and sizes – from music festivals, experiential yoga, and political rallies to gaming competitions –– by providing them the tools and resources they need to seamlessly plan, promote, and produce live experiences around the world. 
Getting high-quality, high-volume organic search traffic is essential for all sites, but at Eventbrite, it’s critical to our business. Our ability to surface the event pages created by our organizers to relevant people across all search platforms is central to our product offering and one of Eventbrite’s key advantages for our customers. We are growing our engineering team quickly in Hyderabad, India. Our SEO (Search Engine Optimization) team is looking for a talented senior software engineer who wants to make a direct and measured impact on our business.

THE TEAM
The SEO team is a cross-functional team including engineers, product, and strategy. We take an agile approach to our work, and we learn from each other as we go. We meet daily to share progress and identify impediments, hone our skills through code reviews, perform demos of the code we ship, and retrospect to improve the way we work. 

As part of the broader Eventbrite Engineering team, we share our learnings on our Engineering Blog and, during non-pandemic times, read about how Eventbrite approaches SEO on our engineering blog
