Description

Eventbrite was founded with the (quite ambitious) mission of bringing the worldtogether through live experiences. We’re building the technology that has powered millions of live events in 190 countries. Live experiences that range from music festivals, to hackathons, political rallies, mud runs, beer festivals, and Girl Geek Dinners.

Our technology spans across web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems. We even build servers in boxes and drive them up mountains in deserts to power the most remote events.
