Senior Backend Developer

Job description


Want to work on innovative tech while making the world a more honest place? GUTS might be the place for you.

Working at GET Protocol / GUTS Tickets

At GET Protocol we’re working on becoming the standard ticketing infrastructure layer of the modern internet. We develop the backbone, tooling and secret sauce needed for building equity in the shady realm of ticketing. In doing so we cover a lot of ground; whether it’s providing event organisers with better access to financing, or giving ticketing companies the features they need to build more transparent & user friendly operations.

In order to walk the walk, we have set up GUTS Tickets, our very own blueprint of a modern ticketing company. Operating GUTS allows us to showcase the full range of benefits that our tech enables. We simultaneously serve existing clients and design the future of digital ticketing. That means dreaming up entirely new features and services and then putting them to work in the wild.

We are SCALING UP! It’s the unique time in our history where we are growing and growing fast. Reaching milestones year after year is not easy, therefore we need you to help us. Our tech team needs some extra brain to conquer the world. Do you want to be one of us?
