Want to help end ticket-scalping and ticket-fraud?

Want to watch the software you build immediately get put to use at the highest levels of the music industry?

Want to join a team of hard working, fun loving people who are still a little weird and know how to both ship rock solid code and not take life too seriously?

The Lyte engineering team is scrappy crew of technology professionals who have experience across the early stage startup realm. We are looking for talented senior server engineers to help us continue to scale our application stack. Our core engineering problems are rooted in the fact much of what we do involves interacting with external api's to conduct ticketing transactions.

As a Senior Backend Engineer, you are:

- Someone who understands Python/Django inside and out and will likely have 5-10+ years experience.
- Highly skilled in the ways of relational database architecture PostGres or MySql.
- Experience working with distributed architecture and performance scaling.
- Capable of figuring out key architectural questions that are likely not embedded in product or infrastructure asks.

In addition to being technically savvy, we love music and events and when we are not pushing code, we are actively trying to have fun in life.

Some of our team members are in bands, some just like to play flute by themselves out in the mountains. Sometimes we participate in the ticketing experience at live events like BottleRock or AfroPunk or SplashHouse. Sometimes, we host parties at these events and do other interesting music industry stuff.

Rewards

- Competitive Salary including meaningful equity.
- Flexible Vacation policy, take the time you need.
- A mature team of people who realize that work life balance requires rigor, discipline and internal organization.
- Awesome opportunities to occasionally interact with all walks of life in the music industry.
- 2nd and Howard office location, easy access to major transit.
- Office provided snacks, food, occasional lunches, coffee, peer baked goods.
- Occasional happy hours but not an office dominated by the party vibe.
- Other cool industry perks that we will tell you about in an interview.

Note: All recruiting is handled by a seasoned dev who helps lead the team :)
