Senior Systems Engineer

Full-time | San Francisco | California | United States


Eventbrite's business continues to grow and scale rapidly, powering millions of events. Event creators and event goers need new tools and technologies that empower them to have the most meaningful live experiences. As a Senior Systems Engineer, you will be part of a team that ensures that the Eventbrite platform runs efficiently, securely, and at scale.


We're a people-focused Engineering organization:  the women and men on our team value working together in small teams to solve significant problems, supporting an active culture of mentorship and inclusion, and pushing 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 the web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems.


As a member of the Operations team, you will share the responsibility for our entire platform, including our production, QA, and development infrastructure.  You will manage systems and services via automation and coding.  You will own requirements and capacity analysis, service configuration, monitoring and troubleshooting. You’ll be responsible for analyzing and resolving network behavior, performance and application issues using standard open source tools.  As a member of our close knit team, you will mentor developers on how to monitor and debug their code in production, to enable them to move swiftly and safely through the platform.  You’ll partner closely with the Security team to ensure that Eventbrite’s systems, services and data are protected against unauthorized use, disclosure, modification, damage and loss.  Ultimately, you will oversee the smooth operation of Eventbrite’s platform from frontend to backend.

Our ideal candidate is the kind of team member who enjoys learning and working with others. If you’re the kind of person who sees a problem, develops a fix and engineers an improvement no one’s asked for yet, then we want to talk with you!
