About TodayTix Group

TodayTix Group is on a mission to find a seat for everyone.

Supporting over 2,000 theatres, producers, and cultural institutions globally, we bring unparalleled inventory to an expansive consumer ecosystem of over 1,000 media and travel partners. From our consumer brands like TodayTix and Show-Score, to Expedia, TimeOut, and LastMinute.com, we meet theatregoers where they are, at the right time.

TTG is a one-stop-shop that’s not one-size-fits-all. Our team customises our approach with each partner to accomplish their goals via seamless integration with our easy-to-navigate tech, data-driven inventory distribution, and expert marketing strategies. TTG has more than 2.5 million active monthly users and has sold 35 million tickets to over 20,000 shows. And it’s just the beginning.

We’re seeking highly motivated team members to join us in disrupting an old supply chain model, creating greater access to theatre, and expanding the theatre-going audience.

We want people of all backgrounds to see themselves represented and included in our work, so we actively seek to diversify our team and bring more voices to the table. All applicants are welcome!

TodayTix Group Tech

Our technology team is driven, opinionated, and committed to customer experience. We believe that writing code can be as expressive a form of communication as art itself.

We are greatly expanding our engineering team and seek engineers with a strong commitment to stability, quality, and getting things right. This is not a “go-to-your-cubicle” workplace but rather an environment with active cross-team communication and collaborative problem solving.

We are actively working on hiring people from different and diverse backgrounds, educational experiences, abilities/disabilities, etc. We are supportive of accommodations needed to interview and do your job to the best of your ability!

Your Role

We are looking for a lead engineer to join our world-class team of technologists. You will collaborate with the team on expanding our offering on our public websites, our native apps, platforms and services as well as our technical tooling that makes us happy and efficient. The role can be remote in the UK/ +/-1 GMT time zone.

  • You should love working with a team and be an excellent collaborator who enjoys working with others to solve user problems
  • Have experience using any leading JavaScript framework such as React, Vue, Next.js etc.
  • Experience of working in environments that use at least two of Java, PHP, Python or Node at scale
  • You are an advocate for web standards (HTTP, JSON, XML, etc) and a power user of version management with Git
  • Care deeply about user experience and design aesthetics
  • Help others write simple, comprehensible, and maintainable code
  • Interested or thrive in a start-up environment and are looking to grow personally and wear new hats as we scale.

Bonus Skills

  • You have experience with AWS and/or Terraform and Ansible provisioning
  • Experience of working in a PaaS environment
  • You have passion for automation (CI/CD) and Docker

We believe in using the right tool for the job, rather than adhering to any given platform. Our production systems currently use Node, Python, Java/Groovy and React/Redux/Nextjs. We use AWS Aurora, MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, Datadog and AWS as backing services but with your insights any of that may change if there’s a good enough business reason.
