We’re reinventing live entertainment and creating a front-to-back stack of services built to power an open ticketing world.

Live entertainment is an industry that embraces magical moments, and in those moments, everything has to be perfect. From high profile on-sales to tens of thousands of fans streaming through the gates on game day, SeatGeek’s future relies heavily on reliable, scalable systems and teams. SeatGeek is a technology-driven company that puts the user experience first for fans and for the teams, venues, and promoters that use our software to efficiently run their businesses. We partner with a range of live entertainment clients across sports, theater, and more (e.g., the Dallas Cowboys, Manchester City, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Broadway theater company Jujamcyn) to help bring their ticketing box office software into the modern era.

The next chapter for SeatGeek and our enterprise product suite also demands we double down on the user experience and radically alter what people expect from ticketing software — more streamlined workflows, happier users, and more perfectly placed pixels. We’re taking an opinionated stand on what good looks like and seek an engineering partner to help drive change in this devilishly complicated industry.

What you’ll do

Reporting to our CTO, you’ll own the technical design, delivery, and operation of our enterprise software platform. More specifically, you’ll:

  • Be a central voice in developing a technical strategy to shape the future of our platform and our deep integrations with myriad partners
  • Spend time with clients, with an eye towards mapping the evolution of the industry to our product strategy
  • Stick the landing on the large and ambitious tech modernization projects we’ve invested in over the past few years — pushing for improvements around how we measure and manage operational maturity, increased sophistication for how we interface with clients, and defining the next tranche of important architectural improvements
  • Build and grow a world-class team. Using your strong network, you’ll recruit, manage, and develop team members while evolving how the team works

  • Deep expertise recruiting, mentoring, and managing exceptional teams
  • A proven track record wrangling scale and technical complexity
  • Passion for user experience and the taste to match
  • Experience working and adapting in an environment that requires first principles thinking and business aptitude for crafting strategy and executing
