Eventbrite is maturing its program management practice to help deliver its strategic vision for its customers. As the leader in the mid market event management and ticketing industry we want to pivot to a new post pandemic world. The Program Management Office will be part of the engineering organization and focus on enabling delivery of market defining features while helping the development teams retool and refresh its technology stack. As the first few TPMs on the team part of the challenge is to influence the team on adopting new delivery practices.
The TPM team at Eventbrite will be responsible for the delivery of key engineering features that drive customer success. This team is responsible for identifying and removing blockers and bottlenecks that impact the software development teams across geographies. They facilitate prioritization workshops to ensure alignment between product, engineering, marketing, R&D and other teams. TPM’s also help bring visibility into the software development production pipeline by publishing metrics and trends. TPM’s eliminate friction within and in between teams by continuous process improvement and influencing behaviours that breed success.
As a Senior TPM this individual will help in defining and prioritizing the backlog at the strategic level. They will partner with engineering managers, directors and engineers to understand the technology as well as the deliverables at the tactical level. The Senior TPM will put together the metrics required to keep track of all deliverables they are assigned. This individual contributor should be fluent in Agile methodologies and development tools and technologies. The Senior TPM will be ready to deep dive into team activities in order to resolve issues with process or behaviors. They will take ownership of their team deliverables, eliminate blockers, identify risks and mitigations while empowering teams to do their best work.
THE TECH STACK
We are moving from a centralized monolithic architecture to a decentralized micro services architecture. This means changes to a lot of technologies that are currently in use across engineering. This also means changes to our CI\CD pipeline and the way we manage our source code. In addition to the move to microservices we are also moving to AWS managed solutions as opposed to solutions that are self managed. So switching from MySQL to Aurora and self managed Postgres to DynamoDb. This Sr. TPM will help roll these changes out across all teams and help drive Agile maturity in the infrastructure team.
