About TodayTix

We’re on a mission to redefine the way people experience theater. Launched in 2013 by lifelong friends and Broadway producers Merritt Baer and Brian Fenty, 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 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 art itself.

We believe in using the right tool for the job, rather than adhering to any given platform. Our production systems run Go, Python, Groovy, AngularJS, and React/Redux. 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 engineering team 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.


Your Role

We are looking for an experienced full stack software engineer to join our world-class team of technologists. You will build and maintain the services that power the global TodayTix platform, participate in tech design discussions and our culture of constructive code review, and have the opportunity to contribute production code across our stack.

About you

  • You’re fluent in more than one production language (e.g., Java, Python, Go)
  • You are familiar with web standards (HTTP, JSON, XML, etc).
  • Have worked with relational databases through raw SQL and have experience using non-relational persistence (MongoDB, Redis, ElasticSearch)
  • You love to learn as much as we, and do so voraciously.
  • You take pleasure in writing simple, comprehensible, and maintainable code for others to enjoy.
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • You make data-driven development decisions -- e.g., using monitoring tools, analytics, A/B testing, and profiling.
  • You thrive in a *nix environment and grok its toolkit.

Bonus Skills

  • You understand that the best solutions to technology problems often lie outside the codebase.
  • You have experience with AWS
  • You have experience with Ansible provisioning
  • You’ve used forward proxies with caching layers and can contribute expertise as we integrate with third party inventory providers.
