Description

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 are looking for a Platform Engineer (open to varying levels of experience) to join SeatGeek’s Product team. As a Platform Engineer, you'll improve the systems that power the entirety of SeatGeek's technology ecosystem. As a member of the Cloud Platform team, you will be involved in themes such as our core compute infrastructure, release automation, reliability engineering, and network infrastructure. We are looking for a Senior Platform Engineer (open to varying levels of experience) to join SeatGeek’s R&D team.

SeatGeek has more services and deployments than developers, which means automation has to be the norm. The Cloud Platform team is the backbone that supports SeatGeek’s Enterprise and Consumer lines of business as we continue to grow our primary and secondary ticketing platform and support clients such as the Dallas Cowboys, and Manchester City FC.

What you'll do

  • Develop and refine internal tools that help release and manage applications across SeatGeek’s stack
  • Improve workflow automation across the Platform team, and the SeatGeek organization
  • Manage and enhance the software application deployment process
  • Build and maintain tools that our developers use to observe their applications, and drive initiatives to increase our overall reliability.
  • Collaborate with other departments on how to run production systems and deployments with autonomy
  • Support teams with expertise in the areas of deployment, configuration, routing, monitoring and scalability in all parts of the stack
  • Participate in an on-call schedule

Who you are

You love building resilient infrastructure but have an even greater love for how it’s deployed and managed. You make decisions based on data and are not afraid of experimenting to get the information you need. While checking every item below isn't necessary, you have (or are keen to have!) some of the following:

  • Passion for craftsmanship and product. You have well-considered opinions about how reliable infrastructure should work, and hold yourself and your code to a high standard
  • Experience working with cloud providers
  • Experience with VMs, containers, and serverless compute platforms
  • Experience with service discovery and routing between microservices
  • Experience scripting in an interpreted language (application development and/or Go experience is a plus)
  • Familiarity with Relational and Non-relational databases
  • Experience with Configuration Management systems and Infrastructure as Code
  • Experience with continuous integration, delivery, testing, and code deployment 
  • Experience using observability tools to make performance improvements and forecast growth
  • Experience improving system architecture, diagnosing shortcomings and implementing evidence-based recommendations 
  • You can simplify complex topics to better suit a non-technical audience 
  • Commitment to your teammates. You enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different experiences and take pride in mentoring and learning from others

The tools we use

You absolutely do not need experience with all of these, but we thought you might be curious. Tools can be learned, so we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language.

  • Languages: Python,Go, Javascript (React), Powershell, Bash
  • Runtimes: Docker, Nomad, ECS/Fargate, Lambda
  • Datastores: Postgres, SQL Server, Redis, and Elasticsearch
  • Service Discovery and Routing: Consul, Envoy, CoreDNS
  • Monitoring: DataDog
  • Incident Management: FireHydrant, PagerDuty
  • Configuration Management: Chef, Ansible
  • Infrastructure as Code: Cloudformation, Terraform
  • Cloud Providers: AWS
  • Version control: Git
  • CI / CD: Gitlab CI

Perks

  • Equity stake
  • 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
  • Flexible PTO
  • Up to 16 weeks of paid family leave
  • 401(k) matching program
  • Health, vision, dental, and life insurance
  • Annual subscriptions to Headspace, Ginger.io, and One Medical 
  • $120 a month to spend on tickets to live events
  • Annual subscription to Spotify, Apple Music, or Amazon music

 


The salary range for this role is $130,000-$240,000. Actual compensation packages within that range are based on a wide array of factors unique to each candidate, including but not limited to skill set, years and depth of experience, certifications, and specific location.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Salaries for the engineering jobs on our site range from $100K-$200K. On average, senior engineer positions on our EchoJobs are about $160K.
  • The EchoJobs positions have been sourced and vetted from the top companies to work for in the US as a software engineer, including LinkedIn and other reputable job sites. We also have syndicated jobs from companies that have just raised funding, as well as those that have great unique products and culture. From all of these sources, our founder, Morgan, has also resourced the company's authenticity in terms of their website, public appearance, and more.
  • Yes, our users asked us for just this, so now our search filters allow you to search for your top jobs via location, as well as by onsite, remote, or both. Approximately 30% of our jobs are remote, so you’ve got the best options for you!
  • We have not yet implemented this option, but are considering doing so in the future. For the moment, you would need to cancel your subscription, and resubscribe when you wanted to come back.
  • We add new jobs to EchoJobs every day! We scan our sources for the newest jobs, verify them, and post them to EchoJobs within minutes. We add about 2,000-3,000 new jobs for you each day!
  • From starting your job search to getting hired, the entire job search process can take us software engineers anywhere between 3-6 months. However, at EchoJobs, we’re striving to shorten this duration by finding the best, newest jobs for you, so you can do less job searching, and more applying.
  • We’d recommend checking EchoJobs daily, as we add new jobs to the site each day. Additionally, if you got a chance to read our previous email on “what makes EchoJobs different from any other job search tools,” we also recommended that you set a job alert based on your job filters, so if you get emails on those new jobs, you could be checking more than once per day.
  • If you decide to continue with us after the 1-month trial, we definitely recommend this, as we all know it usually takes 3-6 months to find a quality job as a software engineer these days. So to best support you, we just adjusted our membership options at EchoJobs to monthly, 3 months, or 12 months (this option is more for passive job seekers looking a little bit for the future if they want to come back to work or make a job switch potentially. This lets you see what’s out there in case an even better fit job becomes available.)
  • EchoJobs is truly the only job site of its kind. We want to be THE spot for you to find the best job for you, and haven’t encountered any other company doing this. Other job sites are in niches besides software engineering or focus on a small portion of engineering jobs (like a specific coding language). In the words of Morgan, our founder, “I think what makes EchoJobs different is the amount of jobs, frequency that we add new jobs (we add 2,000-3,000 new jobs daily!), and the powerful search engines to find exactly the job you want more easily and efficiently. We can provide you with the most jobs that are vetted by us, we’ll continually find more new jobs for you, and we make it easier for you to apply and get hired.
