THE CHALLENGE

The Nashville engineering team is building the next generation of our organizer facing application. We work with cutting-edge frontend technologies to maintain modularity and scalability in a large-scale front-end architecture. We are apart of the first wave of projects at Eventbrite building component-based applications centered around React/Redux. Also, no other place in TN will you be working to ship software to an audience like ours at this scale. You’ll learn a lot and hopefully you’ll teach us something too.


THE TEAM

At Eventbrite we tackle tough problems. We learn, grow, and have fun in the process. The women and men of Eventbrite’s Engineering team enjoy facing challenges as individuals, but we are also eager to collaborate and share our knowledge. The Nashville engineering team is charged with building our next generation organizer app, and the APIs and services that power it. We perform weekly demos of the code we ship, hone our skills through code reviews, and tell the world about it on Eventbrite’s Engineering Blog. We believe in the value of community and the power of live experiences, and regularly host free events with top technical speakers. Learn more about the team from some of our engineers here.
