Here’s what’s going on behind the scenes at SeatGeek and why you should apply to one of their open jobs ASAP!
To put it simply, in the words of a current marketing designer at SeatGeek, “they offer everything I need.”
Health insurance, check. 401K plan, check. Maternity and paternity leave, vacation and paid time off and working from home options–check, check, check! Plus, if you’re a social butterfly that loves attending events in your area, SeatGeek employees get a discount on tickets, in addition to the awesome company social events employees get to attend.
“The best thing about our benefits package is the monthly stipend for attending live events,” writes a current SeatGeek employee on the company’s Glassdoor page. “I feel that this conveys the SeatGeek culture of ensuring a phenomenal product by making sure employees have the ability (and desire) to attend live events on a monthly basis. This helps our development of product, because employees are then able to provide relevant, actionable feedback on the discovery and purchasing experience.”
What’s better than discounted live events? Working with awesome people–and going to those events with them!
“Coming to work each day for SeatGeek, I’m surrounded by driven, brilliant, and eager employees that I learn from every day,” says a current director of strategic partnerships at the company. “After spending 10 hours a day with people, you think you’d be sick of them…but these are genuinely the type of people I want to hang out with after work.”
Employees also say they enjoy working with motivated, like-minded co-workers who are eager and passionate about changing the ticketing industry.
“Without a doubt, the smartest, most motivated and fun team I’ve ever worked with,” writes an anonymous employee on the SeatGeek Glassdoor page.

Exposed brick, mid-century modern sofas, lots of plants and cozy meeting space–that’s why the SeatGeek office is a place employees like to be in and call an “amazing environment!”
When it comes to culture, the company is all about focusing on two things: employees and customers. Not only do employees rave about how transparent the company is–both to employees and consumers–but they also say the company truly upholds the values they advertise.
“It’s a great company that legitimately cares about the employees. Without a doubt, the smartest, most motivated and fun team I’ve ever worked with. Great leadership and a fantastic place to work,” says a current SeatGeek employee.
