Rival is building the technology platform for the most coveted live events on the planet. With investment from Andreessen Horowitz, Upfront Ventures, teams from major sports leagues around the world, and tech leaders from some of Silicon Valley's most innovative companies, Rival helps teams make more money, gives fans fair access to amazing experiences, and keeps the environment safer for everyone.
Live event ticketing is one of the few remaining industries that has not been meaningfully changed by technology in 30 years, because it's a difficult problem to solve. We are using leading edge technologies to build a large-scale platform that solves the many challenges of bringing millions of fans together for the music and sports that they love. We are a team of passionate and talented engineers, product managers, designers and operators who have come together to build something the right way from the ground up.
As Rival grows, we are looking for people who are passionate about building things, solving tough problems, learning fast and who value open communication and collaboration. You will be joining us in our dog-friendly Playa Vista office in the heart of the LA tech community. Rival offers competitive benefits including medical, dental, vision, and unlimited PTO.
