Our people. Employers always attempt to describe what its like to work for their company, but why not hear what it's like straight from the source - our people? Azella, a member of StubHub's overarching business leadership, describes her experience. Great employers provide great experiences.
Who we are. Every employee that works at StubHub has a deep passion for something. Sometimes it's a sports team or a band, other times it's a simple passion for technology, yet our culture goes beyond our interests and passions. Our culture is directly tied to our characteristics and principles:
Our future. Through a variety of partnerships and ongoing refinements to our tech stack, we’re always looking for ways to improve our product offering and connect even more people with live events, worldwide. Our global and North American business partners include more than 60 in MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS and NCAA, AEG, AXS and Spectra Ticketing & Fan Engagement, as well as the O2 Arena and Tottenham Hotspur in the UK. In 2016, we pioneered a first-of-its-kind platform with the Philadelphia 76ers, creating a one-stop source for buying and selling 76ers tickets. With the acquisition of Ticketbis in May 2016, StubHub has expanded into over 40 additional markets, making us a truly global organization.
Our contribution. Not only do we exist to connect people with the teams, artists and people they care about most, we aim to pass down our passion for live experiences. Through our Rising Stars non-profit recognition program, we support grassroots non-profits that are focused on expanding access and opportunity for at-risk youth through sports, music and performing arts education programs. Since its inception in 2012, the StubHub Foundation and StubHub’s charitable giving have dedicated more than $4 million to support more than 50 organizations, globally.
I have been working at StubHub full-time
-If you are an avid sports/ theatre/ concert fan, you will love working here
-Being part of the eBay family has its benefits. There is typically a huge investment in training and development of employees as there is an expectation and incentives to stay for 5-10 years or more.
-You don't have to trade off a growing your career with having a family. There's good work life balance on most teams.
-After a recent acquisition StubHub is now in over 50 countries worldwide! This in addition to the current growth trajectory is translating into lots of new job opportunities and possibilities for lateral and upward mobility within the company.
-Marketing team is being up leveled
-The office is super convenient to get to by Bart/ Caltrain/ Transbay
-Mobile team rocks
-The site technology stack is improving but not fast enough. Architecture guidelines are grossly neglected.
-Too many technical and process bottle necks stifle ability to release quickly
Advice to Management
-Keep up the momentum with business growth!
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at StubHub (San Francisco, CA) in November 2015.
The process was as follows:
1. Technical Phone Screen- 45 mins- mainly focused on technical questions and list experience as per the resume.
2. Followed by Onsite Interviews- 4 each for 45 mins.
