2017 was an exceptional year for SeatGeek. We hired over 85 people, expanded internationally, and were voted as one of Glassdoor’s Best Places To Work.  Since 2018 is shaping up to be even bigger, we are looking to add a superb Payroll and Benefits Specialist to our growing People Ops team.

This is an amazing opportunity to help us build operational foundation of our HR function all while supporting a bright and happy team that’s on a mission to change the way people access live events.
