THE CHALLENGE

Eventbrite is a global self-service ticketing platform for live experiences that allows anyone to create, share, find and attend events that fuel their passions and enrich their lives.  Our mission is to bring the world together through live experiences. In this role, you will have the opportunity to apply and develop your expertise in ways that help bring people together.  You will be a founding member of an early-stage, entrepreneurial, and fast-paced team, focused on problems at the core of Eventbrite’s long-term strategy.  Along with your peers, you will grow as both a technical contributor, and a leader.


THE TEAM

Millions of creators are turning to Eventbrite to connect with our dataset of hundreds of millions of attendees.  The ideal candidate will have the broad range of technical skills required to deliver data-driven solutions.  They will be up to date on best practices in deep learning and ads/recommendation systems with familiarity in the state-of-the-art research in the field. They will be experienced in building and scaling processes which compute over massive amounts and velocities of data.

You will derive insights from Eventbrite’s massive attendee dataset to guide the development of ad delivery and auction systems. Your success in this endeavor will be directly responsible for a highly-visible new portion of Eventbrite’s business. 


THE TECH STACK

As this is a new team and a new product, you will have significant input on the tech stack that is used. That being said, Eventbrite uses a modern, service-oriented architecture with extensive existing data science infrastructure. Our existing data pipelines are managed by luigi and run on AWS EMR, so you would be interacting with these technologies extensively.

  • Working experience with Pytorch or Tensorflow

Work-life balance is extremely important to us

Our employees can choose what works best for them: work in one of our offices, be fully remote or the best of both worlds! We believe in a flexible working environment to allow Britelings to perform at their best ensuring a healthy work-life balance. We have recently implemented Britebreak Fridays: all Britelings turn off their computers and take the first Friday of every month off to focus on their wellbeing.


We are currently working on becoming compliant with the new regulations in Colorado. Until we are able to do so, this role cannot be performed in Colorado
