Why work for us

Eventbrite is a global marketplace for live experiences that allows people to find and create events in 190 countries. The platform allows event organizers to plan, promote, and sell tickets to events (event management) and publish them across Facebook, Twitter and other social-networking tools directly from the sites interface. It also enables attendees to find and purchase tickets to these experiences. Founded in 2006, Eventbrite is headquartered in San Francisco, CA and now has offices in Nashville, London, Dublin, Berlin, Melbourne, Mendoza, and São Paulo. The company generates revenue by charging organizers a fee of 2.5% of the ticket price plus 99 cents per ticket sold, but does not charge any fee for free events. Eventbrite was founded in 2006 by Kevin (CEO) and Julia Hartz (President) and Renaud Visage (CTO). Prior to his position at the company, Kevin Hartz was involved with PayPal and the Co-Founder and CEO of Xoom Corporation, an international money transfer company. Julia Hartz, wife of Kevin, was raised in Santa Cruz, CA. After studying broadcasting at Pepperdine University, she became a creative executive at FX Network in Los Angeles. Soon after the two became engaged, she moved to the Bay Area and helped co-found Eventbrite. Renaud Visage built the Eventbrite site platform. Visage started his career as a consultant with Geomatrix Consultants. He later became the Director of Engineering with Zing Networks. He has a Master of Engineering from Cornell University and from École centrale de Lyon in France. On March 18, 2011 Eventbrite raised $50 million in Series E Financing led by Tiger Global. On April 22, 2013, Eventbrite raised another $60 million in growth capital financing led by Tiger Global, and including T. Rowe Price. This brought their total funding to $140 million.
