    How Eventbrite Solves Complex Design Problems with a Centralized Team

    Unlike other design teams where brand, product and UX designers may sit separately, Design at Eventbrite is centralized and highly collaborative. This lack of silos strengthens communication, improves the product, and particularly influenced Eventbrite's recent holistic, system-focused rebrand.

 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.

The Perks Are Just the Cherry on Top

Lunch? We serve that. In-office yoga? You bet. Time off? No one’s counting. Voted Best Place to Work in the Bay Area 7 years and counting, we take pride in putting people first. We offer benefits that meet you in every stage of life because we know when you’re happy and healthy you do your best work.

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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Eventbrite (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    On the whole, a very smooth process - they were responsive, transparent, and very personable. The only complaint I would have is that it took a really long time for them to get back to me about the rejection and that only after I emailed them to follow up.
