Eventbrite – Why Work For Us?


Eventbrite is the world’s largest ticketing and event technology platform, powering millions of events in 180 countries in 2017. We build technology that allows anyone to create, share, find and attend events of all kinds. Music festivals, marathons, conferences, hackathons, political rallies, fundraisers, gaming competitions— you name it, we power it.

 

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 9 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 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 12 countries 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 worked at Eventbrite full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A driven, relatively transparent company which pays attention and cares for its employees happiness. Lots of opportunities to bond with your team and do fun things to break up your work day. One of the best jobs I’ll ever have! Had a great manager, but can’t say that for everyone. Great work life balance and perks.

    Cons

    Pay is not great unless you’re a hustler. I encourage anyone looking for a job there to hustle their worth because Eventbrite will often under pay. They should strive to pay above market rate.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to your teams desire to grow, and be happy with compensating them to match their worth.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Eventbrite (Nashville, TN) in March 2018.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview with the recruiter, then a phone interview with the hiring manager. After that would be in-person with the hiring manager and then another in-person with the team. Process took quite some time and apparently they didn't keep all candidates moving forward at the same pace, as I was told the main reason I didn't get the job was because someone else was farther along in their interview process.
