Love live music? Interested in the music industry? Want to be part of one of the only tech startups currently making a real impact on the music industry?

Down to help fans get into their favorite events, with a ticketing experience that doesn’t suck? 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? If there is popular music event or festival that is sold out, we are most probably close partners, think the biggest names in the industry! To name a few, Coachella, Burning Man, Electric Forest, Newport Folk Festival, and BottleRock. Don’t see your favorite event or artist here yet? Help make it a reality.

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?
