About Ticket Tailor

Ticket Tailor is a ticketing platform that offers event organisers a simple, helpful and great value way to manage event registration.

Our mission is to be the world’s best loved ticketing platform - five million tickets are currently sold through our service every year and we have a world class NPS score. We are ranked the #1 easiest to use ticketing platform in the world (G2Crowd), #1 event registration platform in the world (GetApp) and one of the top UK companies to watch for 2021 (Capterra).

We’re fully independent meaning we don’t have to answer to anyone except ourselves and our customers, allowing us to scale the company sustainably and with soul. We're proud to be in the process of becoming B Corp certified.

The Ticket Tailor working culture is centred on growing better, not just bigger. We’re a small but stellar team who value simplicity, transparency and collaboration. We love to work with inclusive and supportive people who share our belief that a happy workplace = happy customers.

A note on how we've been impacted by Coronavirus: this past year has been the most challenging ever for the events industry, but we’ve been amazed at the resilience and innovation of event organisers worldwide. At Ticket Tailor, we’ve of course seen the impact of the pandemic, but we've been able to keep our head above water by adapting to the needs of event organisers. We had a profitable 2020, and were able to commit to our annual donation to charity. We also applied to become a B Corp and are hoping to certify this year. Looking ahead, we’re feeling very positive about 2021, especially as we start to see the impact of the vaccine across the world. We see huge potential for growth and have an ambitious five year plan, which is why we're looking for new superstars to join our vision of being the world’s best loved independent ticketing platform.
