THE CHALLENGE

Eventbrite is a people-first organization. Our goal of building the global platform for live experience relies on the foundation of top talent and strong company culture. Our team is the face of Eventbrite, and we’re charged with finding, attracting, and bringing on the best of the best to drive Eventbrite’s growing business and award-winning culture forward. Hiring the best talent globally is no easy feat. However, we have a talented team who has an inspiring story and mission. Our perfect candidate is someone who can connect that vision and story with top-notch talent.

 

THE TEAM

We’re a people-focused Engineering organization:  the women and men on our team value working together in small teams to solve big problems, supporting an active culture of mentorship and inclusion, and committing themselves to learn new things daily. Pair programming, weekly demos, tech talks, and quarterly hackathons are at the core of how we’ve built our team and product. We believe in engaging with the community, regularly hosting free events with some of the top technical speakers, and actively contributing to open source software. The members of our team tackle big problems through small group collaboration. Our technology spans across web, mobile, APIs, big data and machine learning, search, as well as physical point of sale and ticket scanning systems. Specifically for mobile we have 4 apps (Organizer and Attendee apps for both worlds, iOS and Android).

Our engineering teams own their services and systems end to end from requirements gathering to deployment to maintenance. Team members follow an on-call rotation to ensure any issues are mitigated immediately and root causes are rectified.

 

THE ROLE

As an iOS Engineer specializing in the Organizer iOS App, you will be an integral part of our product team, working collaboratively with fellow engineers, product managers, and designers. Your primary responsibility will be the development and enhancement of features for the Organizer iOS App, with the objective of continually improving user experience and engagement. This role offers the opportunity to build new features, optimize performance, and implement best practices. 

You’ll work directly with product management, product design, and other engineers to gain a deep understanding of how our users explore our inventory, and you will build the systems to most effectively satisfy their needs. You will be joining a team that has a fully Swift codebase and it is moving to an architecture driven by SwiftUI, Combine, and The Composable Architecture.

 

THE TECH STACK

Our iOS application is developed using the Composable Architecture (TCA) framework and is coded in Swift. We have integrated Stripe for seamless payment processing and several third-party SDKs to facilitate efficient barcode and QR code scanning. We utilize CircleCI pipelines for building, running test automation, and deploying the application.

Our back-end infrastructure is primarily built with Python and Django, deployed on Amazon AWS with a MySQL database. We are currently developing our own mobile backend for frontend using TypeScript and Node.js.

In addition to these technologies, we utilize a range of tools to support our development and operations, including Git for version control, Datadog or Splunk for monitoring and logging, and PagerDuty for incident management.
