You will regularly embed with different teams to understand their friction points, providing targeted and innovative solutions.
StubHub is committed to being a phenomenal and inclusive place to work. As a Staff Software Engineer, you will not only be a technical leader and innovator, but also a coach who lifts everyone around you and inspires a growth mindset across your team. Our most technical engineers are also the humblest advocates for their team members, and they operate from a place of empathy and inclusion, often teaching the same to their colleagues. Such leadership, along with bias for action, pragmatism, robustness, operational excellence, and high quality of deliverables, are some of the core tenets of this role.
