In the past five years, we have grown rapidly. Our goal is to make buying and selling secondhand tickets easy, honest and safe. We have over 2 million registered users across the world and counting.

We are moving towards world domination quickly. We experience lot's of challenges while scaling the platform. To deliver the best user experience possible, we need to make sure we have great response times all over the globe.

Are you ready to accept our challenge?

  • You’ll be part of our Product team of 15 people, which consists of product managers, designers, mobile developers, backend developers and frontend developers. The team is mostly working from Amsterdam and some are working remotely.

  • You’ll get the freedom to learn and to build your own ideas. Every 2 weeks, we have Fun Friday, where everyone picks their own day project. This is the day you can learn something new, try out a new framework or ship that small feature you always wanted to create.
  • You'll get a yearly budget of €1000,- for conferences and education.
  • A daily comprehensive lunch at the office. Every other Friday there's a chef cooking something nice 🍴
