Mission: We're an assortment of bright, talented, and interesting people united by the mission to change the way people buy tickets. By day, we're a group of talented developers, designers, marketers, and businessfolk working together to build something ...
We couldn't be more thrilled to announce our primary ticketing partnership with the New Orlean Saints and Pelicans! 2018 will be a great year.
We're excited to be on Crain's Best Places to Work list two years in a row! Thanks to all of our wonderful employees for making this such a great place to work.
When we're not passionately crafting world-class interfaces for our clients and users, we love to experience the magic of live events firsthand. Our ranks include diehard sports fans, passionate concert-goers, sophisticated theater enthusiasts and comedy junkies. From our lives outside the office and within, we all have interesting stories to tell. What's yours?
SeatGeek was built in 2009 as the only mobile ticketing marketplace created with fan experience top of mind. We’re transforming the way fans buy and sell their tickets to their favorite live events across sports, music, and theater.
While we humbly believe we have the best consumer technology on the market, our mission goes beyond that – by bringing a technology-first approach to an entire industry sorely in need of a better solution, we aim to be a force for good in live entertainment.
We believe great technology empowers organizations and delights users. For too long, ticketing technology has done the opposite. We envision a world in which rightsholders decide where to sell and who to work with. The result is a truly open ecosystem that spurs innovation, captures better data, and helps the world experience more live.
Everything has an interface. Apps. APIs. Teams. People. We take atypical care in defining and crafting interactions.
People create the magic of live entertainment; we work in an industry that often forgets that. We start with the fans and everything else follows.
Much of SG’s genius has come when one inspired person rolled up her sleeves and got stuff done. We’re all working towards a common goal, but our success will be defined by those moments of brilliance.
We can hire people, we can raise money, but we can’t create time. So we’re relentlessly judicious about how we spend it.
Thousands of small details make the difference between good and amazing. We get absorbed in every pixel, every word of copy, every customer interaction.
Not a Ticket Company
We love to build things. We leverage technology to work faster / better. Our competitors see technology as a disturbance, a pest. We are their foil. We embrace that.
Bold and Humble
We aren’t afraid to face anything: a technically ambitious project, a 30 year old monopolist. But, we don’t let success get to our head.
Welcome to the hiring process! If you’ve received our thank you email, you successfully applied for a job at SeatGeek. Someone at SeatGeek will always review your application, and we promise to get back to you regardless of the outcome.
Step two is to connect with someone here on the team either over the phone (non-technical roles) or on a video chat (technical roles). We want to get to know more about you and your background. And, you’ll get the opportunity to learn more about us, too! Insider tip: We love when you spend a bit of time exploring our site and app before the call.
At this stage, we are digging deeper into your skill set. For our non-technical roles, we love to bring local candidates into our NYC or PDX offices to meet with team members and get a tour of the space we work in everyday. If you’re on the technical side of things, we’ll set you up on a video interview so you can show off your skills with some live code pairing.
If we were going to make a bad sports analogy, we would call this the 4th quarter. But, we’re definitely not going to do that, so let’s stick to “Final Interview”. Now’s your chance to see what daily life at SeatGeek looks like. You’ll meet several more members of the team, and we want you to leave with a full picture of what it’s like to work at SeatGeek.
We love to talk to former colleagues and managers you’ve worked with in the past. Not only can we learn a bit more about you, but we can also ensure that you’ll get the best experience possible out of SeatGeek!
Far and away our favorite part of the process, this is when we get to make things official and welcome you to our team. You can expect a horde of information about our perks, benefits and general life at SeatGeek with your offer letter.
We’re pretty casual here. You’ll find most of us wear jeans day to day. Wear whatever makes you most comfortable, but no need to dress up.
It’s always good to arrive a few minutes early to get settled, ask questions, and even get a tour of our space.
There’s a lot of meaningful rewards to working at SeatGeek: being part of an amazing team, building a world-class product, and oh so many free snacks.
We’ve also got a lot of perks and benefits designed to help you focus on the things that really matter: yourself, your loved ones, and your work.
I have been working at SeatGeek full-time (Less than a year)
The people here are awesome & I really feel as though I'm a valuable part of the team. All ideas are welcome during the product development process & there is a ton of collaboration. I really appreciate how transparent upper-management is and how accessible they are.

Advice to Management
Keep on being transparent and prioritizing team events as the team continues to expand.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SeatGeek.
Had three rounds of interviews. They asked for samples from instagram and twitter that we felt were good posts. Interview itself was an hour. They changed the title of the role a few times, not sure why. Company seemed cool though.
