SeatGeek believes live events are powerful experiences that unite humans. With our technological savvy and fan-first attitude we’re simplifying and modernizing the ticketing industry.

We are looking for a Lead Data Scientist (open to varying levels of experience) to join SeatGeek’s Marketplace Analytics team, focusing on inventory, seller, and fee pricing workstreams.

You will join a high-performing team that will be the go-to partner on experimentation and insights generation for SeatGeek’s Marketplace team. Your efforts will drive improvements in growth and profitability through analysis of SeatGeek’s seller incentive and fee pricing strategies. As a senior contributor, you will be tasked with helping to prioritize SeatGeek’s Marketplace Business roadmap by building a data-driven understanding of supply and consumer price elasticities through experimentation and predictive modeling. Underpinning this work will be a collaboration with Analytics Engineering to implement performant data models and model runs, ensuring analysis-friendly data in production. Finally, you will partner closely with other leaders on the Data team at SeatGeek to improve the organization’s capabilities around modeling, experimentation, causal inference, and data visualization. Accompanying this broad set of responsibilities will be exposure to the highest levels of leadership at the company, and the opportunity to work at the nexus of data science, mixed methods research, and economics at the most innovative company in the live event space.
