Senior Backend Software Engineer

San Francisco, California, United States

Senior Backend Software Engineer

Full-time | San Francisco | California | 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.

 

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 (check out Britecharts as an example!). Our technology spans across web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems  

 

THE ROLE

We are looking for motivated software engineers to join our cross-functional Series team in San Francisco. The team comprises 2 full-stack developers, 2 backend developers, a product manager, a designer, and an engineering manager. You will solve challenging technical problems, own your products end-to-end, and help take the company to the next level. This isn't just an opportunity to join an amazing team, but also to have an impactful role in the way we take our platform to the next stage.

 We’ve got a culture focused on smarts, kindness, continual learning, and feedback… and our people love it. Come find out why!

 

THE TECH STACK

Eventbrite’s primary tech stack is Python, Django, and MySQL, all running on AWS, and this is the main sandbox we play in. However, because this team interfaces with many other teams, there’s potential to many other pieces of our broader tech stack (Redis, Cassandra, Kafka, ElasticSearch, etc).

THE SKILL SET

  • 4+ years building applications in a mainstream programming language: Python, PHP, Ruby, C#, C++, Java, etc.
  • 2+ years of experience using some form of web framework: Django, Symphony, Rails, ASP.net, etc.
  • 4+ years of experience using a SQL database: MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSSQL, etc
  • Efficient, practical programmer with a record of designing and producing dependable code
  • You care about making sure your code is maintainable and well tested
  • You bring knowledge of TDD and do it in your day to day
  • A result driven self starter with great communication and collaboration skills, we put a lot of emphasis on being team players
  • Passion to learn and to teach/mentor others

BONUS POINTS

  • You have knowledge of microservices and/or Service Oriented Architecture
  • You have experience working with modern frontend frameworks: React, Backbone/Marionette, etc
  • You have experience designing and developing APIs, both internal service and HTTP APIs
