Senior Frontend Engineer

The Opportunity

 

Headliner is the next generation live events company, changing the way users attend and experience live events. Our core product is a live event ticketing platform, making it easier and cheaper for consumers to attend events by enabling them to bid the price they want to pay, similar to the mechanics of the stock market. This has allowed us to become the fastest growing ticketing platform in the US, gain a loyal following of users, and save them millions on purchases in the process. That said, we still have a lot of work to do and a long road ahead, and are looking for people to join us on this journey.

 

We are currently looking for a versatile, self-motivated software developer with a bias for front-end development to join our engineering team. We are looking for someone excited to take on our ambitious product roadmap who exhibits passion, creativity and a love of building products that directly touch consumers. If you are interested in playing a mission-critical role in helping develop the future of how fans attended and experience live events, we want to talk to you!

 

Our engineering team is a small, tight-knit and highly productive group. We all currently work across the stack to build out new features, and optimize our current offering to offer the best possible experience to our users. This role reports directly to our Head of Engineering, but will be regularly interfacing with our CEO, Head of Growth, and Director of Design.
