Senior Frontend Engineer

Remote - United Kingdom
Software Development

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.

We’re proud to partner with some of the most recognized names in sports and entertainment across the globe, including the Dallas Cowboys, Liverpool F.C., and the Florida Panthers, alongside many other teams in the NFL, MLS, and English Premier League, and theaters on Broadway and in London’s West End.

We believe rightsholders, not ticketing companies, should have full control over the tools they use and partners they choose within their ticket-selling ecosystem. Third-parties make that ecosystem better – from tools that provide analytics, data visualization, dynamic pricing, and more – and our flexible, open platform makes those integrations possible.

We're looking for bright, curious builders who want to help millions of people experience the thrill of live entertainment by improving and modernizing our enterprise ticketing product. The ticketing industry is messy, complex and makes attending live events more difficult than it is; we believe a thoughtful application of software can fix that.

What you'll do

In the modern world of SaaS, rightsholders’ expectations of our ticketing platform are higher than ever; delightful and intuitive modern user interfaces, rich and performant API’s and seamless integrations whilst processing hundreds of millions of requests a month. Enabling the SeatGeek Enterprise organization to do all of this is the mission of the Rightholders Edge team. You will be involved in:

  • Spearheading the sustainable evolution of the UI platform to provide modern scalable front-end software that accelerates feature delivery for teams across the organization 
  • Building API gateways to provide observability, rate limiting, advanced routing, HA, whilst simplifying and standardizing our SaaS provisioning
  • Defining endpoint architecture and aligning on usage of CDN, WAF, DDoS protection, throttles, standard auth n/z, thereby allowing teams to be more autonomous on modernizing their software in a safe and scalable manner
  • Swapping out the engine while the plane is flying: evolving our platform in an uptime-critical setting, without compromising on our users’ experience 
  • Evaluating new technologies and improve our software stack to maintain our technological edge

What you have

  • Frontend expertise and a willingness to get your hands dirty throughout the stack
  • 7+ years of experience in software development, especially in architecting and implementing frontend solutions for complex cloud-based applications leveraging modern, browser-based frameworks and technologies
  • Proficiency in at least one modern web programming language and comfortable with several others
  • An opinionated mind on how scalable and reliable systems are structured, are hosted, communicate with each other, are observed & monitored, and handle authentication & authorization
  • Natural curiosity with a bias for action; able to navigate and make sense of ambiguity to drive a coherent direction
  • Commitment to your teammates. You enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different experiences and take pride in mentoring and contributing to the growth and success of other team members

Perks

  • Equity stake in a well-funded growth stage company
  • Flexible work environment, allowing you to work as many days a week in the office as you’d like or 100% remotely
  • A WFH stipend to support your home office setup
  • Benefits package that supports health and dental. We also provide annual subscriptions to Headspace
