Festicket

Festicket empowers music fans with a seamless service to discover and book tickets and travel packages for music festivals worldwide. Our platform offers an end-to-end experience for music travellers and event organisers, with 1,500+ music festivals across 40 different countries, and a network of 5,000 suppliers for accommodation & travel packages. In six short years, we have become Europe's largest music festival platform.

The Festicket Family is a truly international team with people from over 20 different countries, and we're passionate about changing the face of live music experiences. Our head office is in Camden, London with further offices in Leeds, Berlin, Amsterdam, Porto, Nantes and San Francisco.

THE ROLE

We are looking for a front end developer who possesses a keen eye for detail and a passion for collaboration and getting features into production. Someone who wants to learn whilst delivering quality.

You would be working as a frontend developer within one of our product focussed teams, working closely with other frontend developers, backend developers, QA engineers and the team’s product manager to deliver changes and new functionality. You would be involved in planning new work and helping the product manager decide what the team should be working on to achieve the team’s goals.

You would also be working on frontend technical tasks to improve our frontend architecture, improve the performance and usability of the site, make use of new technologies, reduce complexity, write and maintain our internal tooling and make development easier.

YOUR ATTITUDE

You’re someone who’s smart, organised, motivated and gets things done. You want to work in a startup environment, because you like the idea of doing a bit of everything and taking ownership of what you work on. You have ideas about everything, and you’re not afraid to argue your point (while respecting everyone else’s of course). You’re constantly thinking “how can we do this better?”.

THE STACK

We use modern JavaScript techniques to implement new and innovative solutions to difficult business problems. We love the power and flexibility React gives us in producing truly cross platform applications. We transpile with babel, meaning you can work with all the new JavaScript hotness whilst supporting older browsers, we type check with TypeScript and build with webpack. We render our applications on the server so users get the best possible perceived performance. We scale with ease using AWS, launch staging environments via our Slack bot and automate Jira away so you almost don't notice it’s there.

METHODOLOGY

Our teams are collaborative, product focussed, cross-functional organisations that are empowered to define their own work and organise themselves. We work incrementally and dedicate time to refactoring, updating our stack and libraries or experimenting with new technologies. We like to build fast, scalable, easily maintainable applications using whichever tools are right for the job. Most of all, we like to deliver! We believe in manageable chunks of work with continuous integration and delivery to enable multiple production releases per day, so that we’re always making progress.
