Senior UI Developer

About the role

We are looking for a leading UI developer to join our team, bringing creative flair and a confident and strategic design approach to our scaling platform. Ticket Tailor is packed full of useful features and supports a huge variety of event organisers around the world; this means it is critical we drive for simplicity, ease of use and consistency, in a way that is also visually appealing for our users and ticket buyers alike. With a small engineering team and an ambitious roadmap, our engineers need to be able to build powerful interfaces easily and independently. This is a unique opportunity to be the driving design force behind a rapidly growing platform used by 30k event organisers all over the world.

 

About Ticket Tailor

Our mission is to empower a diverse range of event creators by making it easy and affordable to sell tickets online. We believe in doing business for the good of society and the environment, by growing better not just bigger.

Last year, over 10 million orders were placed through the Ticket Tailor platform, for all types of events from art installations to water park entry. We have a world class NPS score, and pride ourselves in building a simple platform built with a customer-first mindset, whilst making a difference to the planet by donating 1p to climate causes for every ticket sold.

We’re fully independent meaning we don’t have to answer to anyone except ourselves and our customers, allowing us to scale the company sustainably and with soul.

Our small, but stellar team values simplicity, transparency and collaboration. We love to work with inclusive and supportive people who share our belief that a happy workplace = happy customers.
