Eventbrite is a people-first organization. Our goal of building the global platform for live experience relies on the foundation of top talent and strong company culture. Eventbrite is seeking a Principal Mobile Software Engineer to join us in our mission to bring the world together through live experiences. Last year alone, our platform processed over 150 million tickets across over 3 million events organized by our creators. Our perfect candidate is someone who can connect that vision and story with top-notch talent.
You will be joining a team of 15 engineers doing Native development in both Android and iOS globally distributed across Argentina, US and Spain.
The members of our team tackle big problems through small group collaboration. Our technology spans across web, mobile, APIs, big data and machine learning, search, as well as physical point of sale and ticket scanning systems. Specifically for mobile we have 4 apps (Organizer and Attendee apps for both worlds, iOS and Android).
As a people-focused organization, we support a culture of inclusion, mentorship, and continuous learning. Pair programming, weekly demos, tech talks, and hackathons are at the core of how we build our team and product. We engage with the community by hosting events with exciting technical speakers and releasing key building blocks of our stack as open-source software. Our engineering teams own their services and systems end to end from requirements gathering to deployment to maintenance. Team members follow an on-call rotation to ensure any issues are mitigated immediately and root causes are rectified.
As Principal engineer, you’ll be in a preferred position to support the technical vision of the area (native development, iOS and Android) and keep ensuring Eventbrite’s platform evolves to exceed our customers’ expectations. You’ll be challenged to research, design and implement technical solutions and become a point of reference for the engineering teams.
At the team level you will work closely with your Engineering Manager and different Product Managers. At the company level you’ll be responsible for technical leadership and mentoring.
THE TECH STACK
The Eventbrite stack lives in AWS and primarily consists of React (frontend) and native apps (Swift and Kotlin) on the frontend and a mix of Django and SOA on the backend. We have python, node and golang in our application layer. We have a mix of datastores with a strong MySQL presence.
As we evolve as a company, more services are created and our tech stack will keep changing.

Deep understanding of the Swift language and type system.
Experience with UIKit and SwiftUI.
Experience in writing clean and testable code.
