We’ve built a team that does great work and has an awesome time doing it—and we’re always looking for more whip-smart people to pipe up, dive in, and get their hands dirty with us.

 The Potential Rocks

If you like a challenge, you’ll love it here, because we’re solving tough problems every day. We’re positioned to go big (global marketplace big) and are always pressing forward. With weekly tech talks from thought leaders, brite camps led by teammates, and fireside chats with our founders, we’re committed to growth—both professionally and personally.

The Perks Are Just the Cherry on Top

Our technology spans across web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems. We even build servers in boxes and drive them up mountains in deserts to power the most remote events.

Our engineering team values working together in small teams, developing simple solutions to complex problems, and we are committed to releasing open-source packages so others can benefit from and contribute to our work. Weekly demos, tech talks and quarterly hackathons are at the core of how we’ve built our team and product.
 
Our primary stack is Python, Django, and Celery, all running on AWS with a MySQL backend. Some of the other tools that we use are Redis, RabbitMQ, Cassandra, Hbase, Hive, Backbone, Sass, Git, and much more. We never run out of coffee and the kegbot is always full.

    Pros

    * Colleagues are supportive and always willing to help you learn a new skill or contribute their expertise to a project. People are not territorial or competitive at all. There is team spirit in the truest sense (not just as a catchphrase).
    * Everyone is genuinely friendly and cares about you as a person. I've made "real life" friends with many of the people I've worked with. Going to work is actually fun! At the same time, there is absolutely no forced socialization or expectation that you need to "fit in" -- as a general rule everyone is very accepting and welcoming.
    * The degree of transparency is very high -- founders have weekly chats with the entire company where any question can be asked and will be answered. There is a minimum of office politics.
    * Good work-life balance: unlimited PTO, managers encourage work life balance and there isn't a culture of staying in the office until midnight.

    I've worked at 3 different companies before this, and can honestly say that Eventbrite is my favorite by far.

    Cons

    Compensation tends to be on the modest side, although in line with industry standards. Also balanced out by the fact that we get unlimited PTO, good work life balance, etc -- versus other places with higher compensation but a cutthroat work culture.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Eventbrite.

    Interview

    Talked to head engineering manager at an event and mentioned I was interested and began the interview process from there. Great talks with my interviewers was an extremely pleasant interview process. Had to end the interview process prematurely because my summer plans had changed halfway through.
