TicketSwap is on a journey to become the world’s favourite platform for fans to buy and sell tickets. Having raised our first-ever funding round, and with events opening up around the world, we are looking forward to a very exciting 2022; swapping tickets, launching in new countries and rolling out new product features.

On this journey, we are professionalizing our application and making sure the platform is as strong as possible. With this, we face lots of technical challenges. The product must be super simple, and all complexity should be hidden. Technology and forward-thinking are our core drivers. We rapidly change, adapt and learn.

TicketSwap is built by real fans and that really defines our product. That's also why we are continuously looking for smart brains to strengthen our product team. We are happy to welcome a new Backend Developer!

Projects we are currently working on

Your curiosity is really important, as is your drive for innovation. The product team has a lot of freedom and space for personal creativity. Productivity and teamwork are key values for us so your contributions will have a huge impact. Your newly shipped feature will be used by thousands of our users immediately. Here are some example projects, to give you an idea of what's going on:

  • An entirely new raffling system for those events where there are more people looking for tickets than there are tickets available, to keep our system fair and scalpers out;
  • Build improved support for theatre and theme parks, with a lot of business rules and database changes;
  • Totally new dev environment for Secure Swap partners, to make it easier for them to connect with us and make events 100% safe.

About you

You have been a software engineer for a couple of years (3+) and have a good working knowledge of PHP (possibly with the Symfony framework) and MySQL. You use git every day, write meaningful commit messages, and test the code you check in. Even though you've been around the block, you also know that the field of software engineering is a fast moving target and there is no way you can know everything, so every day is an opportunity to learn and embrace change. You enjoy bringing value to end users, and acknowledge that small steps every day are the way to get there. If you have experience with Javascript/React, native mobile languages, or with "ops tools" - that's a big bonus.
