Eventbrite's business continues to grow and scale rapidly, powering millions of events. Event creators and event goers need new tools and technologies that empower them to create/have some of the most memorable of life’s moments, live experiences. One of our most important elements in achieving our company goals is our people. As an engineering manager you’re responsible for the careers, productivity, and quality (among other things) of Eventbrite’s builders. On the Platform Insights team, you and the team you hire will be a key part of Engineering's success. You will focus on providing visibility into how our systems are performing by tracking the metrics that matter. You will work throughout our codebase and product to ensure that we are gathering the correct data and displaying it in consistent ways.
We're a people-first Engineering organization: the women and men on our team value working together in small teams to solve big problems, supporting an active culture of mentorship and inclusion, and pushing themselves to learn new things daily. Pair programming, weekly demos, tech talks, and quarterly hackathons are at the core of how we’ve built our team and product. We believe in engaging with the community, regularly hosting free events with some of the top technical speakers, and actively contributing to open source software (check out Britecharts as an example!). Our technology spans across web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems. This role is based in Eventbrite’s Madrid office. We’re one of 6 Eventbrite engineering offices around the world.
We’re looking for a people-centric and technical manager to help support the career growth of our engineers and collaborate on improvement within our organization.
