The Challenge

Eventbrite powers millions of live events every year and provides a safe and trusted platform for creators to host awesome events and

attendees to have meaningful experiences.

 

The Team

At Eventbrite, we have a people-focused engineering organization: working together in small teams to solve big problems, supporting an active culture of mentorship and inclusion, and committing ourselves to learn new things daily. Whether it's pair programming, weekly demos, or techs talk, collaboration is at the core of how we build software. Check out some of our open source initiatives Britecharts and PySOA, and our engineering blog posts.


The Role

The Risk & Fraud team builds and maintains services and tools for a number of business-critical functions including protecting event creators and attendees from financial loss, unsavory user-generated content, marketplace collusion, account takeover and other types of malicious behavior.

As a Principal Software Engineer on the Risk & Fraud team, you will meaningfully impact the experience of millions of event-goers, keeping them safe from malicious activity.  You'll be building performant, scalable applications to mitigate risk like fraud reporting and email list management. You'll collaborate with engineering, product, and other business stakeholders to scope and design products. You'll mentor other engineers and contribute to a robust learning culture. You'll be proactive, curious and accessible.

 

The Tech Stack

The main Risk & Fraud infrastructure is a Python-based service that can be queried by other systems at Eventbrite. We build tools within the core Eventbrite platform on top of React backed by Django. For datastores, we lean heavily on MySQL, Cassandra, and Redis. We use Kafka for large-scale data pipelining, and scikit-learn for machine learning.

THE SKILL SET

  • 7+ years of relevant experience
  • Strong experience with Python or other similar high-level language
  • Experience with full-stack web development (especially Django)
  • Experience with MySQL or other RDBMS
  • Unit-testing know-how required, experience with TDD or BDD a plus
  • Efficient, practical, analytic programmer with a record of producing dependable and extensible systems
  • Strong experience and proven track record of mentoring junior engineers
  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in a technical field (CS/Math/Stats/Engineering), or equivalent experience

BONUS POINTS

  • Experience building administrative and operational tools
  • Experience interacting with account identity and authorization components
  • Experience in risk, fraud, spam, or finance domains


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."

Work-life balance is extremely important to us

Our employees can choose what works best for them: work in one of our offices, be fully remote or the best of both worlds! We believe in a flexible working environment to allow Britelings to perform at their best ensuring a healthy work-life balance. We have recently implemented Britebreak Fridays: all Britelings turn off their computers and take the first Friday of every month off to focus on their wellbeing.
