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.


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 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.

THE SKILL SET

  • 7+ years building applications in a mainstream programming language, ideally Python
  • 3+ years of experience with a web framework, ideally Django
  • 3+ years of experience using a SQL database: MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc
  • You have experience designing and developing APIs, both internal service and HTTP APIs
  • Efficient, practical programmer with a record of producing maintainable code
  • Ability to take initiative and produce results with great communication and collaboration skills
  • Passion to learn and to mentor others
  • English and Spanish conversational to advanced level

BONUS POINTS

  • Experience using non-relational databases like Elasticsearch and Redis
  • Comfortable developing in a container environment like Docker
  • Familiarity with continuous integration tools like Jenkins or CircleCI
  • Experience working with modern frontend frameworks like React, Vue.js, or Backbone.js
  • Experience being on a scrum team  and/or is a scrum master

In addition to offering a competitive salary and company stock, we have other great benefits available. In the Briteland, you’ll find great medical plans, fertility and adoption benefits, wellness reimbursement, generous parental leave, on-site services, and much more.


We care about your mental health and wellbeing

Our employees enjoy free coaching sessions with Modern Health. We also offer free therapy sessions with a psychologist. You’ll also have access to private medical insurance for you and your family, that includes dental care. And if you like sports, we have our wellness program to pay for your gym expenses.

Ongoing training and career development is an important part of our culture

We offer unlimited access to courses in Udemy, language exchange programs, internal training, Briteling talks, workshops and weekly sessions with our CEO

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.
