SeatGeek believes live events are powerful experiences that unite humans. With our technological savvy and fan-first attitude we’re simplifying and modernizing the ticketing industry.

By catering to both consumers and enterprises, we’re powering a new, open entertainment ecosystem where fans have effortless access to experiences, and teams, venues, and shows have seamless access to their audiences. Because everyone should expect more from ticketing. We are looking for an experienced manager who can help us scale up our development operation and empower our engineering teams. SeatGeek is a product-centric organization that deploys code into production many times per day. As we grow, the scale of our technical challenges - and their effect on our customers - continue to increase. We want to ensure we continue to build the best product and team we can.

What you'll do

  • Manage a team of backend/full stack engineers.
  • Provide regular job performance feedback, hold one-on-ones, and provide career development support to your direct reports.
  • Guide the team to improve operational and engineering best practices to keep our development machine humming.
  • Play an active role in our recruiting process, helping us to grow our engineering team in any way you can.
  • Perform code reviews and provide technical and design feedback to the team.
  • Partner with your product counterpart in planning cycles, and help us keep our priorities in order.
  • Communicate technical and product decisions to the right people, resolve blocking issues, and collaborate with other leaders across the organization.
  • ...and if you have any free time after doing all of that stuff, writing code is always a good way to stay sharp!

  • 5+ years as an engineer in a role that was mostly about writing code
  • 3+ years of experience as an engineering manager of productive, motivated teams
