StubHub – Why Work For Us?

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:

  • We are courageous. It’s ok to take risks. That’s why every Stubber is encouraged to assert their opinions, try new things, and live their passions with confidence and conviction. If you have an idea for how we can work better, say it out loud. 
  • We are driven. It’s ok to take risks. That’s why every Stubber is encouraged to assert their opinions, try new things, and live their passions with confidence and conviction. If you have an idea for how we can work better, say it out loud.
  • We are inventive. Curiosity is the first step toward bringing a new idea to life. StubHub has had a lot of industry firsts, including the introduction of the first ticketing application, the first interactive seat mapping tool, 360 virtual views of venues, and an algorithm that makes it easy to find the best deals. And, not to brag or anything, but we’ve gotten some great recognition for our chat bot and app for Apple TV.
  • We are richly diverse. An open mind opens opportunities. As a global company, we embrace all cultures, styles and ways of working. From an industry-leading, 100% paid parental leave policy to flextime and floating holidays to a generous, fully paid sabbatical program, we care about every Stubber’s experiences, interests and personal situations.
  • We are the brand. The best things in life are live. And that’s exactly how Stubbers experience the world: from screaming our heads off at baseball games and rugby matches to watching the world’s finest performers onstage, we know firsthand just how life-changing these events can be for the people we serve.
  • We are StubHub One. We act as one team in pursuit of connecting people with the teams, artists and people they care about most. We’re bold, inventive and are constantly upping our game. And we’re always looking for people who have unique perspectives and are passionate about experiencing the world through live events. We hope you’ll join us. 
Planning the next step of the project

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!
