Universe is a leader in online ticketing for virtual & in-person events. We're growing fast due to innovations in virtual events and timed-entry ticketing. We solve for large complexity and load, serving some of the biggest names in live entertainment (e.g., Dua Lipa, Metallica, Garth Brooks, Meghan Thee Stallion to name a few) and operating in over 15 countries.

We were acquired by Ticketmaster in 2015 which accelerated our growth. With a global team over 30 strong, Universe operates independently with our own roadmap and modern tech stack (including Kubernetes, ArgoCD, and more) and the financial backing of a Fortune 500 company. Free concert tickets are a cool perk too!

In this deeply technical and business-minded position, you will report directly to the Senior Data Engineer, and help push forward development of our data-platform operations.

• You are an independent, fast-learning, self-starter who takes ownership over solving hard problems
• You're a hacker at heart who lovingly crafts elegant solutions with pride
• You're energetic, passionate, and driven

• Business Acumen – You understand and can apply general business concepts, using external networks to understand market situations and industry.
• Passionate – A love for your craft that pushes you to strive for elegance and quality in your work.
• Winning Teamwork – Collaborating with others in a respectful manner and openly sharing information amongst the team to assist in achieving Ticketmaster goals and objectives. Taking the time to empathize and understand where others are coming from, along with showing recognition and appreciation for the contribution of others.
• Inquisitive – A forever student, always seeking to learn and grow with and from your peers.
• Problem Solving and Innovation – Gathering appropriate perspectives and insights and seeking win-win solutions by remaining open to alternative approaches and being proactive in generating new ideas. Ability to maintain a balanced perspective and see all sides of an issue and manage problems in a timely and effective manner. A free and independent thinker, open to new ideas and concepts.
