Shotgun is a worldwide event marketplace that enables live event organizers to create amazing events and distribute tickets to evolving communities of users, in France, Brazil, Spain, USA or Mexico.

We've built an intuitive software to help organizers build and grow their community and make the right decisions all throughout their journey. Shotgun allows them to refocus on what really matters to them: artistic direction and event production.

In a world where going out has become a way of life, the mobile application Shotgun is the go-to destination for young people to discover events, buy and resell tickets.

We're building the platform that connects millions of fans to event producers and artists. Our mission is to make people live amazing experiences in the real world.

What we're looking for

We're looking for individuals who love to create products and have ownership from inception to shipping.

We live in a moment where entertaining people has never been so essential: your mission at Shotgun will be critical. We're looking for people who love the idea of making people happier.

Finally, we're looking for innovators, people who have crazy ideas and who value freedom more than anything else.

In a post COVID world, the live event ecosystem is starting from scratch. We have to experiment new ways for events to happen.

Why this role?

  1. Build the future of live events
  2. Grow a product that is already being used by 600,000 people and thousands of organizers across the globe
  3. Join us at one of the most exciting moment of our history: we've launched Brazil last year, and US, UK, and Spain this year

Being an engineer at Shotgun

At Shotgun, engineers have a lot of ownership, as they both build features and make crucial product decisions. We move and ship fast, by maintaining a constant balance between quality and efficiency. We also regularly take time to work on long-term challenges, even if it implies to rebuild a product from scratch. Since the features we ship are used in real time on the field, we make sure stuff we ship works.

Our products

The mobile application is only the tip of the iceberg: at Shotgun, we have the ambition to address the needs of event producers and party-lovers, at every moment of their journey. This means a large variety of products and tech challenges:

🎤 Event producers (B2B)

🕺 Consumers (B2C)
