Backend Engineer (Golang / Python)

Job description


  • We look for candidates of various experience levels who work with either Golang or Python (or both).
  • We offer visa sponsorship and relocation support. Remote work is also possible.


Do you want to work on the cutting edge of blockchain, high tech and entertainment? GUTS Tickets revolutionises event ticketing while making the industry an honest space. Join our scale-up and boost your career to the next level.

Working at GUTS Tickets

With our GET Protocol we have been providing an honest ticketing solution on the blockchain since 2015. This open infrastructure layer is used by event organisers worldwide to guarantee entry to music festivals, concerts, sports events and everywhere else a ticket is required for (digital) entry. GET offers all the features needed to build more transparent and user friendly sales and operations. It transforms the shady realm of event ticketing into a honest space. Our GET token is listed on Coinmarketcap, has actual real-world utility (Sorry dog coins!), and can be traded on exchanges like Bittrex and SushiSwap.


We have sold over 1 million tickets via our GUTS Tickets app which allows us to showcase the full range of benefits that our technology enables. GUTS Tickets is our very own blueprint of a modern ticketing company and prevents fraudulent ticket sales by using our GET Protocol. We simultaneously serve existing clients, fund event organisers and design the future of digital ticketing. That means dreaming up entirely new features and services and then implementing them in real life.




We are now scaling up fast and selling more tickets every month despite the global pandemic. It is a unique time in our history and we want you to be part of it!
