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.  Our goal is to be the global platform for live experiences.


THE TEAM

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.


THE ROLE

As a senior member of the checkout team, you will share in the responsibility of the checkout flow that an attendee goes through when purchasing tickets on Eventbrite. You will own the user flow of handling purchasing information, accounting, and interfacing with credit card providers and various types of payment systems to process purchases, and influence the future of the service that powers all of these transactions across the company. You will partner closely with the Payments and Pricing teams to handle an attendee's order, irrespective of the country the purchase origination from or the payment currency. Ultimately, you are the gatekeeper of a customer's ticket transaction with an organizer.
