THE CHALLENGE


Over the last decade, we have built a world-class SaaS platform for event organizers, enabling millions of events globally. Last year alone, our platform processed over 150 million tickets across over 3 million events organized by our creators.  As our platform continues to grow, we need to continue investing in platform fundamentals in order to enable our engineering teams to be empowered and autonomous.  Eventbrite is seeking a strong software engineer to join us in our mission to bring the world together through live experiences and help us take our platform to the next level.  


THE TEAM


Our team is part of the Frameworks pillar, providing value to the engineering organization by underpinning the foundation for our technology platform that enables our product to continually evolve.  The Message Bus team seeks to empower engineering teams with data independence by providing them with a best in class distributed message system powered by Kafka.  This powerful communications layer enables various microservices to produce and consume topics over the Message Bus.  


THE ROLE


As a software engineer working on the Message Bus, you’ll be directly influencing the technical direction for our high availability distributed message system.  You’ll contribute through developing the broad ecosystem of tooling that enriches our Kafka implementation, weighing architectural options and documenting those decisions, and solving difficult problems such as data validation for messages and reconciliation of failed and invalid messages. 


THE TECH STACK


Eventbrite is one of the world’s largest Django-powered sites by request volume. Python, Django, and MySQL are the primary off-the-shelf technologies in our stack. We are hosted on AWS. PySOA, our services framework, builds on these core technologies. Because this team interfaces with many other teams, there’s potential to work with a variety of other backend technologies in our stack, including Redis, Kafka, and ElasticSearch to name a few.

THE SKILL SET

  • You have 4+ years of experience and a proven track record of building software applications at scale in one or more mainstream programming languages as well as having developed web applications at scale using one or more mainstream web application frameworks.
  • You have 2+ years working with relational databases, such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSSQL or non-relational databases like Elasticsearch and Redis
  • You have 1+ years designing and developing with event-driven systems, ideally using Kafka.
  • You have a willingness to work with a distributed team across several neighboring timezones.
  • You develop code that is easily maintainable, thoroughly documented, and well tested.
  • You have an understanding of the tradeoffs between building new technology and buying existing technology.
  • You have a passion for learning and to mentor others.

BONUS POINTS

  • Comfortable developing in a container environment like Docker
  • Familiarity with continuous integration tools like Jenkins or CircleCIExperience with automated testing frameworks and methodologies
  • Experience with Terraform, Nomad, and other HashiCorp technologies
  • Has led teams in making architectural decisions
