Eventbrite is looking for an experienced PR professional who loves media relations and storytelling to join our growing global communications team. In 2020, Eventbrite went from ticketing music venues to COVID-19 vaccinations. The global pandemic impacted the in-person events industry in big ways, but we met the challenges head on. We rolled up our sleeves and got to work to help event organizers navigate one of the most disruptive years of our lives and bring people together in new and different ways. As a result, we hosted more than four million events on Eventbrite in 2020, a third of which were virtual. We’re a stronger, more focused company than ever before and if there’s one thing we’ve learned through this past year, it’s that our mission of bringing the world together through live experiences remains invaluable to consumers and event creators alike.
