Eventbrite is seeking a Staff Backend Software Engineer to join us in our mission to bring the world together through live experiences. Last year alone, our platform processed over 150 million tickets across over 3 million events organized by our creators. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to build features, design APIs, and scale our product as we grow.
Our team’s mission is to have a unified, stable and performant Order Processing experience across Eventbrite. Ordering is a Tier 1 service, all orders in Eventbrite go through our services, which implies we have a great responsibility, as a consequence of this the team is currently through a transition to a pure Devops culture. We strive for teams completely autonomous and with full ownership of their services and roadmaps. We expect an important growth of physical events in the following months, we are doing full rewrite to improve our scalability, availability and innovation and we need people to help us scale our services, from design to implementation.
We seek staff software engineers who are passionate about their craft to join our engineering team in Spain, although we’re remote friendly. We’re currently through a transition to a pure Devops culture. We strive for teams completely autonomous and with full ownership of their services and roadmaps. Teams usually consist of front-end engineers, backend engineers, a product manager, a designer, Technical program manager, and an engineering manager. You will solve challenging technical problems and own your impactful products end-to-end. You will contribute to Eventbrite engineering’s culture of technical excellence through inclusivity and mentorship. This is more than an opportunity to join an amazing team, it is a chance to impact Eventbrite’s platform and organization at scale.
THE TECH STACK
The Eventbrite stack lives in AWS and primarily consists of React and native apps on the frontend and a mix of Django and SOA on the backend. We have python, node and golang in our application layer. We have a mix of datastores with a strong MySQL presence. However, this team is about to start a migration to a completely new stack (such as Kotlin, DynamoDB, Lambdas, gRPC, Step Functions, etc) where the team will have complete ownership and autonomy. We will do a full rewrite of the ordering system and we expect you to participate not only in the implementation but also in the decision making, ranging from design to choosing our stack.
