TicketSwap is on a journey to become the world’s favorite 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 strong end of the year and a very exciting 2022; swapping tickets, launching in new countries, and rolling out new features.

Curator of The Pragmatic Engineer Job Board
With in-person events returning in 2022, TicketSwap is expected to grow, big time. An exiting time to join a startup ready to take off even more. 9/12 score on The Pragmatic Engineer Test. Not all engineers get equity - leads do - oncall WIP and parallel IC and manager tracks are not (yet) in place.
