The Overview

First, a little background: We launched the first version of the SeatGeek iPhone app in December, 2012. In the little over a year since, we've completey redesigned the app for iOS 7 and added iPad support, login/signup, performer/event tracking and push notifications for newly announced events in your area. We humbly believe this app represents a leap forward for ticketing on iOS.

The app is great, but there's much more to do. Stuff like a better checkout experience, in app ticket delivery and push notfications for great deals. We make finding a great ticket easy, but that's not where the live event experience ends. That's where you come in.

Check out the app in the app store. If you like what you see, but think you can make it even better, we'd love to hear from you.

What's the Current App Like?

  • Press: TechCrunch and ZDNet were both kind enough to give the SeatGeek App a favorable review
  • Apple: The App Store has featured the app as "New and Noteworthy," "Designed for iOS 7," "What's Hot" and more.
  • Reviews: Thus far, users seem to love it.
  • Super users: As a caveat, we don't hang our hat on this sort of thing. I hesitated to add them here. But the app has high-profile advocates:

What You'll Be Doing

  • Help define mobile for an entire industry. Ticketing now is where photo sharing was when iOS 3 was released.
  • Write code that will be used by millions and be recognized by the most discerning app reviewers out there: Apple.
  • Work with the SeatGeek design folks to prototype and develop new UI components.

What We're Looking For

  • 1+ years of experience building iPhone apps (our prototypical candidate would have at least 2-3 years, but we don't want to exclude talented people with a bit less).
  • Someone who has developed beautiful, useful apps that are live in the App Store.
  • An engineer who's comfortable handling plenty of responsibilty and can see a project to completion with minimal help and intervention.
  • Someone who cares about building something that's used and loved by many. Someone who cares about details—we've noticed the best iOS developers are as obsessed with pixels as they are with view controllers and NSSortDescriptors (Eric's favorite discovery while working on the app).

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
