About The Job:

Not looking for a typical office gig? Passionate about joining a team that has actually changed the way an industry works? We’re looking for someone who's interested in jumping in with both feet to impact how the live event industry operates and help us deliver killer solutions for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, or the Vegas Golden Knights, and pretty much any significant live act in between. As a key member of our Finance team, your skills will be called into play across a broad spectrum of activities. We are looking for someone to help solve problems that you may not have faced in your career, but you have the technical skills and “figure it out” attitude to solve. You will be responsible for all things accounting and help from time to time with general operational support. We are small enough where we all help one another and growing at a crazy pace. We hope you have a passion for our industry and excited about the opportunity to be a part of it!

Who We Are & What We Do:

The Rolling Stones, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Travis Scott, Post Malone, Ariana Grande, Guns ‘N Roses, and thousands more of the world’s top artists and their teams depend on atVenu to manage their concert merchandise sales.  We’ve expanded our live event platform and point of sale into some of the world’s most iconic venues and festivals and are now rapidly expanding into food and beverage and growing our presence around the world.

Why Come Work For Us?

It’s fun! We have a great team of passionate, dedicated individuals that when put together move mountains and have changed the way an entire industry operates.

We have a solid foundation with strong revenue growth year-over-year and the largest customers in the industry. These critical customers rely on us to solve their problems which continues to create more and more opportunity at a very fast pace!  We’re large enough to have very solid footing as a company, platform, and industry partner while still small enough in size for you to make an important impact with your expertise and enthusiasm.

We strongly believe and support balance in your life, without it both work and personal time suffer. We take very serious our role in fostering an environment for you to achieve your definition of success and purpose. We want you to achieve whatever goals you have and want you to have fun in the process.
