Think about the most cherished live event you experienced. Now think about that experience and the billions around the globe who yearn to gather and rekindle human connection. Eventbrite is going to lead the return of live experiences. We are going to bring the world together again but this lofty ambition relies on a strong technical organization. That is where you come in!



As the leader of the HRBP function supporting the technical organization, you will support the CTO and CPO, in all things people, as they lead the evolution of their functions. You will lead an HRBP function with globally distributed staff.
