Senior Backend Software Engineer - Music

Full-time | Nashville | Tennessee | United States

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, and that means an event experience that is delightful and easy for both organizers and attendees.


THE CULTURE

We're a people-focused Engineering organization: our engineers 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 TEAM

Eventbrite Music team is global - we work from San Francisco, USA and Mendoza, Argentina and now we’re excited to be extending our team to Nashville! The Music team is creating leading event lifecycle tools which focus on 6 areas: Book, Build, Market, Sell, At Event, Analyze. The wide range of features in these areas will enable event creators to build successful events and provide the highest quality attendee experience. Scalability and performance are at the top of our engineering focus, as we see these to be the most crucial elements of our creators ability to sell and run large events. We develop products with a global eye, taking into account local languages, regulations, payment methods, and expectations.
