    How Eventbrite Turned RSVPs Into a $1 Billion Idea

    If you've RSVP'd for a party or a conference online, chances are you know Eventbrite. Last year, the digital ticketing platform reached a $1 billion valuation. It was the culmination of a journey that began less than 10 years ago when co-founders Julia and Kevin Hartz, then engaged, decided to commit not only to each other, but to a business.

    Introducing Pick Your Own Seat for Reserved Seating Events

    It's here! I'm excited to share that we've released a new feature this week that lets your attendees choose their own seats at your reserved seating events. It's available to event organizers using Eventbrite.com, and will be available internationally very soon.


Eventbrite – Why Work For Us?

At Eventbrite, we believe that gathering with others is the best way for people to learn, grow, get inspired, feel connected, get healthy, give back, and celebrate. So we're building technology that facilitates those gatherings, by helping people find and attend events that feed their interests, while connecting them with others who share their passions.

We are here to bring people together.



The People Rule

Get ready for spontaneous applause, impromptu brainstorms, and the contagious excitement we bring to the office each day. 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.


Our team embodies the wide spectrum of events on Eventbrite—from musicians to marathon runners, foodies to fundraisers. What unites us? Our drive to help people get offline and get together to explore their interests and pursue new passions.

Sound up your alley? Join us.


With offices in 8 of the best cities across 4 continents, we're growing internationally and looking for great people far and wide.



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.

    I have been working at Eventbrite full-time (more than a year)


    Be prepared to experience work as a team sport. Expectations around collaboration are high and to the degree you can demonstrate capability, challenge and autonomy tend to quickly follow.


    For those who need a set structure of how to advance or a step-by-step guidebook for how to do their job, the company can be frustrating.

    Interview Details

    1 phone screening for 30 minutes with the head of corp dev. Then 5-6 back to back interviews on video or in person. The people that interview you are those that you will potentially work with over the role. It also includes two HR interviews. I interviewed with marketing, business strategy among other functions even though I was gunning for corporate M&A. The goal is to know the company extremely well so do your research. The people are extremely friendly and questions are not difficult if you do your homework.
