About TodayTix
We’re on a mission to redefine the way people experience theater. Launched in 2013, our international ticketing platform connects global audiences in 13 cities to the $50 billion live entertainment business. Through effortless access to the best shows, insightful guidance to the world of theater, and thoughtful service at each moment along the way, we enable people to discover the best that their city has to offer.

We have quickly grown to a team of more than 80 full-time employees in four offices in three cities across the country and the world. We’ve completed two successful rounds of funding, and we’re seeking highly motivated team members to join us in disrupting an old supply chain model, creating greater access to theater, and expanding the theater-going audience.

We are actively working on hiring people from different and diverse backgrounds, educational experiences, abilities/disabilities, etc. We are supportive of accommodations needed to interview and do your job to the best of your ability!

TodayTix Tech
Our technology team is driven, opinionated and committed to providing the best user experience while purchasing tickets. We are expanding our engineering team with engineers who strive to achieve stability in technical architecture, quality and elegance in code, and eager to face new technical challenges. This is not a “go-to-your-cubicle” workplace but rather an environment with active inter-team communication and collaborative problem solving.

The Role
We are looking for a full-stack software engineer to join our world-class team of technologists. You will build and maintain applications that power the growth of the global TodayTix platform, participate in technical design discussions, constructive code review, and have the opportunity to contribute production code across our stack.

Deep experience with at least one production language, preferably an object-oriented programming language. (e.g., Java, Python, Go, etc.)
Proficient in JavaScript and has experience developing on common web framework, preferably React/Redux and NextJS.
Familiar with web standards (HTTP, JSON, XML, etc)
Familiar with using a relational database like MySQL
Make data-driven decisions in code -- e.g., using monitoring tools, analytics, A/B testing, and profiling

Bonus Skills
Some experience using non-relational persistence like MongoDB, Redis and ElasticSearch
Familiar with basic UNIX/Linux commands
Have a background in e-ticketing or eCommerce
Can play a musical instrument or has participated in the performing arts.

We believe in using the right tool for the job, rather than adhering to any given platform. Our production systems run Java, Groovy/Grails, Go, nodejs/nextjs, and React/Redux. We rely on AWS Aurora, MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch to power our services. We’re on AWS managed over Terraform, Docker and Ansible.

What efforts are you making in terms of increasing diversity & inclusion within your company?

Our company sits at the intersection of the arts and tech which attracts different than usual employees. The 20 person tech team has represents 6+ nationalities, 4 women, speaks 16 languages (not including technical ones), 7 identify as POC, 4 have children, and 33%+ don't identify as heterosexual.

Finding the right person to join the tech team goes far beyond skillset and education background in favor of a holistic view of a candidate. We have a generous benefit suite that includes a religious/parent room, generous vacation, equity, and many other standard startup perks. The best perk is free tickets to shows both on and off broadway--many of which are attended by members of all teams!
