Sr. Software Development Engineer (Front-end)
Santa Monica, CA /
At the intersection of technology and entertainment, Atom Tickets' team of dreamers and doers are dedicated to changing the way people go to the movies. Why movies? Because they have the power to bring us together and connect us through shared experiences. We’re driving innovation, accomplishing the unthinkable, and we need passionate talent like you to join our team.
Atom Tickets is a social ticketing platform that has re-imagined the movie experience from the ground up. We’ve simplified everything from when you decide you want to see a movie to when the lights go down and the previews start. We’re a team of bright, driven, and experienced developers, product designers, and movie lovers — we love using data to improve the way our products work and how theaters operate. We’re backed by influential movie studios including Disney, Fox, and Lionsgate, and we’re bringing innovative industry-first features to market such as pre-ordering concessions.
As an engineer at Atom Tickets, you will be working with a group of highly motivated software developers who thrive on solving challenging problems with innovative solutions. We build large-scale distributed software systems in Scala, Java, Python and other languages. You will work with virtually all of the functional organizations across the company — including Product, Marketing and Operations. We believe that accomplishing something great requires a special group of people who work hard, drive results and have a blast while doing it — people who challenge the status quo and embody our values. People who say, “I’ll find a way” instead of saying, “it can’t be done.”
