The Program Management Office will be part of the engineering organization and focus on enabling delivery of market defining features while helping the development teams retool and refresh its technology stack. 
The TPM team at Eventbrite will be responsible for the delivery of key engineering features that drive customer success. This team is responsible for identifying and removing blockers and bottlenecks that impact the software development teams across geographies. They facilitate prioritization workshops to ensure alignment between product, engineering, marketing, R&D and other teams. TPM’s also help bring visibility into the software development production pipeline by publishing metrics and trends. TPM’s eliminate friction within and in between teams by continuous process improvement and influencing behaviours that breed success.
As a senior TPM this individual will help in defining and prioritizing the backlog at the strategic level.

We are moving from a centralized monolithic architecture to a decentralized micro services architecture. This means changes to a lot of technologies that are currently in use across engineering. This also means changes to our communication protocols and the way we scale our services while minimizing latency. In addition to the move to microservices we are also moving to AWS managed solutions as opposed to solutions that are self managed. So switching from MySQL to Aurora and self managed Postgres to DynamoDb. This Sr. TPM will help roll these changes out across all teams and help drive Agile maturity in the infrastructure team.
