ABOUT TODAYTIX

TodayTix’s mobile-only ticketing app launched in December 2013 to connect global audiences to the $50 billion global live entertainment business. The app sells last-minute (week-of and day-of) tickets to the complete offering of Broadway and premium theater productions at every price point from premium orchestra seats to discount balcony seats.

We have quickly grown to a team of about 45 full-time employees. After initial seed capital from top executives in the entertainment and tech industries, we recently completed a healthy Series-A round of financing to fund our global expansion.

We're seeking highly motivated team members to join us in disrupting an old supply chain model, to broaden access to theater, and expand the theatergoing audience.
 

About TodayTix Tech:

Our technology team is driven, opinionated, and committed to customer experience. We believe that writing code can be as expressive a form of communication as theater itself.

We believe in using the right tool for the job, rather than adhering to any given platform -- our production systems run Python, Java, PHP, Groovy, and R; we use MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, and S3 as backing services; and we rely on Nginx, Tomcat, and Apache to route traffic and serve requests.

We are expanding our platform and seek engineers with a strong commitment to stability, quality, elegance, and getting things right. This is not a “go-to-your-cubicle” workplace, but rather a dynamic environment with active cross-team communication and collaborative problem solving.

 

Senior Android Engineer

We are looking for an Android developer to join our world-class team of technologists. You will hand-craft our core product -- the end user's experience of TodayTix. You'll build pixel-perfect and elegant customer interfaces, help design the API connecting our mobile applications to our servers, interact with the product team to ensure the highest usability standards, and work in tandem with our back-end engineers to build the global TodayTix platform.

  • You have strong proficiency in the MVC design pattern and the Android Activity Lifecycle.
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • You take pleasure in writing simple, comprehensible, and maintainable code for others to enjoy.
  • You have experience integrating third party SDKs, with REST APIs, and using SQLite or SharedSettings.
  • You are deeply familiar with web standards (HTTP, JSON, XML, etc) and version management with Git.
  • You make data-driven development decisions -- e.g., using monitoring tools, analytics, A/B testing, and profiling.

Plusses:

  • ​You have knowledge of Scala or an interest in learning it.
  • You have deep knowledge of the entirety of the Android framework, from Services to AsyncTasks.
  • You have knowledge of the Android Canvas.
  • You have knowledge of the Android NDK.
  • You have at least one production quality app in the Google Play Store.
  • You understand that the best solutions to technology problems often lie outside the codebase.
