We are seeking an experienced backend Go developer to join our 100% remote team, reporting to the CTO. This is a great opportunity to join a tight-knit, fast-growing startup that is changing an industry.  

Your team:

The Digital Ticket Wallet product team focuses on delivering value to users with digital tickets to events organized by our customers, as well as to the box office, ticket takers, and ushers for those events. The team aims to allow ticket holders and ticket issuers to quickly and seamlessly do everything with their digital tickets that they can with a paper ticket. In addition, this team leverages the unique characteristics of digital ticketing to reduce ticket fraud, and augment communication between event organizer and ticket holders, facilitate self-serve transfer and re-sale of tickets, and enhance event organizer insight into the chain of custody of each ticket.

The Digital Ticket Wallet product team discovers, designs, builds, and owns our ticket wallet web application, QR code, and related authentication services. All of these services are hosted in our cloud. The team consumes data provided by a tight integration with the primary ticketing systems used by event organizers, and provides data back to that integration as users interact with their tickets.

What we offer:

  • Compensation: salary and equity (compensation and balance are negotiable)
  • Highly collaborative and fun work environment
  • Flexible daily work schedule
  • Flexible paid time off
  • Work with noteworthy arts, culture, and event venues around the world
  • Professional development and training
