Eventbrite is a people-first organization. Our goal of building the global platform for live experience relies on the foundation of top talent and strong company culture. Our team is the face of Eventbrite, and we’re charged with finding, attracting, and bringing on the best of the best to drive Eventbrite’s growing business and award-winning culture forward. Hiring the best talent globally is no easy feat. However, we have a talented team who has an inspiring story and mission. Our perfect candidate is someone who can connect that vision and story with top-notch talent
You’ll shape and automate the organization and aggregation of our existing data and gather data from new sources. You’ll collaborate closely with engineering and our product teams to pull the data that informs product decisions. You will own the flow of data from our product to internal data consumers and contribute to long-term plans for optimizing analytics and decision-making.
We’re a people-focused Engineering organization: the women and men on our team value working together in small teams to solve big problems, supporting an active culture of mentorship and inclusion, and committing themselves to learn new things daily. Pair programming, weekly demos, tech talks, and quarterly hackathons are at the core of how we’ve built our team and product. We believe in engaging with the community, regularly hosting free events with some of the top technical speakers, and actively contributing to open source software. Our technology spans across web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems.
Our engineering teams own their services and systems end to end from requirements gathering to deployment to maintenance. Team members follow an on-call rotation to ensure any issues are mitigated immediately and root causes are rectified.
THE TECH STACK
Eventbrite’s primary tech stack is Python, Django, and MySQL, all running on AWS, and this is the main sandbox we play in. However, because this team interfaces with many other teams, there’s potential for many other pieces of our broader tech stack (Redis, Cassandra, Kafka, ElasticSearch, etc). We are also moving toward a micro-service architecture and using a variety of newer technologies like gRPC. You will have the opportunity to integrate with Eventbrite’s core systems and interfaces, which are built with Django on the backend, and React and Redux on the frontend. We are hosted entirely on AWS, with MySQL and PostgreSQL as the standard database technologies.
