Pricing Strategist

SeatGeek, SeatGeek HQ

Millions of tickets in one place.


Consumers have long trusted SeatGeek as a leader in ticket pricing. Our Deal Score algorithm provides users with the ability to compare live entertainment options side by side with confidence that they are getting the value they want. With initiatives like SeatGeek Marketplace and SeatGeek Open, our opportunities to leverage this pricing expertise are expanding rapidly. Our goal is to serve our customers by removing inefficiencies from the market for event tickets; price intelligence plays a vital role in that endeavor.

We have a large archive of historical ticket price data and deep institutional knowledge of ticket pricing. We like unit tests and we like calculus and we like economics. We love building simple solutions that do the job and we love getting things right. To you, building data products and shipping them is second nature. You can eloquently describe the purpose and internals of data products you have designed or built. You’re not afraid of a challenge. We were made for each other.

What you'll be doing

You will own ticket pricing at SeatGeek. Event tickets are liquid assets with interesting financial properties and an evolving role in the live entertainment space. Volatility, interest rates, and liquidity add complexity to the problem of pricing tickets appropriately. On any given day, you might be working on any of the following:

  • leading quantitative research on pricing strategies, digging into years of supply and demand data on ticket prices and transactions
  • providing technical leadership in deployment of pricing algorithms to production
  • analyzing supply and demand data to identify opportunities for better pricing
  • understanding price elasticity of demand and sell through rate
  • establishing a measurement framework for pricing strategies, picking metrics to optimize and making it happen
  • running tests to experiment with different algorithms
  • developing internal tooling to monitor and optimize pricing products

What we're looking for

We expect the person who fills this role to step in and leverage their experience to drive results. Skills and past experience that will help you be successful include:

  • 7-10 years experience in quantitative roles, including at least 3 years in a pricing position (direct P&L responsibility is a strong plus)
  • proficiency with at least one general purpose programming language and experience working on software that has gone into production
  • graduate degree with research in quantitative economics, operations research, or applied mathematics
  • a strong track record of developing successful data products (especially in financial services or e-commerce)
  • ability to work with multiple stakeholders and manage competing objectives
  • prior management experience
