What makes a company great is the people! The Global Mobile Apps team at Ticketmaster consists of 2 core iOS developers, 2 core Android developers, 2 react native developers and 2 dedicated QA engineers. There are often times additional teams spun up to help the mobile apps team focus on features like app growth, global support and privacy enhancements. Although some challenges require platform specific solutions, we try to learn, and problem solve together as a team. Our product and engineering managers are always available to help developers with priorities, blockers and gathering additional specifications to help do the job right. Constant learning is a part of the team culture with the expectation that engineers will need to use some of their time each day researching and learning new techniques. Be part of a collaborative learning environment with perks like Google I/O, WWDC conference tickets and training to help the team stay up to date with the latest mobile best practices. Want to learn a new skill? Just talk to your manager and they will help you make it happen.
