Jobs at SeatGeek

The Overview

We're looking for folks who are smart, curious, and love building web apps. Most of our current team is pretty full-stack capable, so we don't have particular holes we're trying to fill. Rather, we need to expand our team so that we can deal with the challenge of constantly improving a site that already serves millions.

We believe in deploying code into production every day, a flat engineering team, rapid iteration, and an intense focus on user experience. We build most new features as standalone web services, and we open source them whenever we can. If that's intriguing to you, drop us a line.

What We're Looking For

  • Experience building web apps. The more the merrier. We'll be most interested in checking out what you have built.
  • Passionate about web apps and code: You are opinionated about how software should work, inside and out.
  • Expert with at least one language (French does not count), and good with several others.

The Tools We Use

You absolutely do not need experience with all of these, but we thought you might be curious:

  • Languages: Python, JavaScript, Ruby, and PHP (Symfony)
  • Datastores: MySQL, Redis and Elastic Search
  • Server: Nginx, Tornado and flask for Python, Thin for Ruby, all riding on EC2/S3/CloudFront
  • Version control: Git
  • Stats: NumPy/pandas and R
  • Deployment: Capistrano along with a large set of Chef Cookbooks
  • Monitoring: Graphite/StatsD
  • Obvious: HTML/CSS and lots of JavaScript. The latter uses jQuery and Backbone.js.

Job Perks

  • A competitive base salary and equity stake in a well-funded early stage company
  • A culture where the product is king
  • A monthly budget to spend on tickets to live events
  • A laid-back, fun workplace with an endless supply of snacks/coffee/beer, frequent team lunches, and social jaunts organized by Eric Waller, our official Social Chair
  • The opportunity to write code that is used outside of SeatGeek, e.g. we've opensourced our a/b testing framework, Sixpack, our Redis-backed autocompleting service, Soulmate, and our Python string matching library, FuzzyWuzzy
  • A superb benefits package, including full health/dental/vision
  • Hackathons: scheduled times when everyone drops what they’re doing and builds cool stuff in small groups
