Who are we?
Live Nation Labs is an internal startup at Live Nation, tasked with reinventing our consumer presence online and on mobile. We are product- and user-focused with the express goal of connecting people to the world’s largest stage. We are an agile group of engineers and designers, focused on making beloved products in a lean, fast-paced, and forward-thinking way.
If you’re not familiar with our parent company, this listing is probably not for you (that’s command-W for you mouse clickers).
Who are you?
You like a challenge. You get things done. You pay attention to detail. You’ve shipped a web application or played a significant part in shipping one. You’ve thought critically about what you’re passionate about, and didn’t think twice about applying to Live Nation Labs. You adapt to change easily and are looking for the next giant leap in your personal development. You are not looking to climb a corporate ladder, and most of all, you do not want to be a pencil pusher.
The Role:
Work can and will include application development, application design, support, and engineering solutions to difficult problems when they arise. This position is focused on front-end engineering, but will also contribute to all aspects of the stack. Coding will primarily involve Javascript/Coffeescript, Ruby/Rails/node.js, HTML pre-compilers (HAML, etc), and CSS. You will be writing well-tested, maintainable code and will be part of a small, agile team. Expect to move around a lot and iterate rapidly.

A Few Sentence Fragments About Culture:

* Balanced work/life expectations
* Creative thinking and constructive criticism is encouraged
* Learning of all kinds (incl. unrelated to work)
* We love side projects (think 20% time but more fun and less useful 😉

* Lots of freedom
* Startup culture in a big company
