Vivid Seats is the largest independent online ticket marketplace, sending tens of millions of fans to live events. Experiences Matter- which is why we continue to grow year over year. Working at Vivid Seats puts you front and center at the opportunity to scale our best in class platform that allow our fans to sit closer and experience more.

At Vivid Seats, you will have the opportunity to work with the flexibility and speed of a startup; while operating at massive, profitable scale. We keep our teams lean, allowing each and every employee direct accountability to creating a positive ticket buying experience. We are relentless and move quickly to release new features and content to our applications. Good ideas are heard and implemented, and hard work rewarded. Being a part of our team means having the ability to drive impact and own the innovation that connects our tens of millions of unique monthly users to the memorable experiences that only live events create.

As a Front End Engineer you will help build and optimize web technology that delivers billions of page views to www.vividseats.com. In this role, you'll be responsible for evolving our current UI practices, while creating the next generation of Vivid Seats' front end on a cross-functional and fast-moving team. Our front end engineering team has recently migrated all of our legacy JavaScript to a modern ES6 build process, and are working to adopt ReactJS and progressive SPA practices in place of server-side rendered experiences. We are a test-and-learn culture that allows our front end engineering and UX team members to launch A/B experiments that impact hundreds of thousands of users per day.

You'll have the opportunity to work with our product and UX specialists to turn mockups into features and assist product and technical leadership in project planning and influencing technical decisions. You will be responsible for building and delivering consistently performing UIs, and abstracting these into reusable patterns.

To be successful, you'll need

* A proven career building applications and services in JavaScript and using Node.js
* Experience building and sharing JavaScript libraries and modules for a feature-driven engineering team
* Strong knowledge of front-end web languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript)
* Expertise on at least one client-side JavaScript framework (Experience building React applications preferred)
* Expertise in developing complex UIs that leverage RESTful JSON APIs
* Actively contribute opinions on responsive design techniques, and progressive enhancement
* Strong written and interpersonal communication skills
* Creativity, fearlessness and an unwavering commitment to putting the customer first
