Do you like parties? Me neither! Not to worry, though... as an Engineer on the PartySlate FUN-gineering Team you’ll be amongst the pool of employees that was socially distancing before it was cool.

We are a diverse, family-friendly, flexible, and fun company. We used to have team outings and on Fridays we would play board games like Pandemic and Catan, but since COVID-19 we’ve moved the games to Zoom and will never ever enjoy Pandemic again. That said, we’ve adapted and remain a fully remote workforce, headquartered in Chicago.

As a software platform for Event Professionals and Venues, we are roaring back along with our industry, and investing in engineering to continue to build innovative features into our product.

About the Opportunity
As a Senior Frontend Software Engineer at PartySlate you have the opportunity to craft engaging experiences and innovative solutions for a platform that connects well over a million people a year to many thousands of venues and event professionals across the country. As a Senior Software Engineer you will be a mentor to others and a strong collaborator with your peers. You’ll work closely with your team to craft technical designs that align with our goal of continuously delivering real value to our users. 

Why Work With Us
Our engineering team holds a strong culture focused on collaboration and personal growth. We value diverse thought and a “growth mindset”, focused on exploring new technologies and sharing what we learn. At Partyslate, you will have the challenge and autonomy of a startup, but with a culture that respects the need for work-life balance. You’ll have the opportunity to influence our technical direction and support the adoption of new frameworks and conventions. Our industry and our company are growing this year and that growth translates into opportunities to expand your technical and leadership skills. If you want to work on a popular consumer product, grow your skills and knowledge, and collaborate with an elite team of engineers, designers, and product managers, PartySlate is the place for you.

An Insider's view of PartySlate

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I would describe the office vibe as an exceedingly collaborative open office that simultaneously provides a focused and disciplined environment to get your work done.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined PartySlate as a marketing associate right after undergrad. As we grew and began selling memberships, I created our Customer Success department while continuing to help marketing. Being able to impact different areas in just a few years allowed me to create the best path for me, and led me to my current role as the B2B Marketing Manager.
