Why work at Brown Paper Tickets?

Social impact

Our not-just-for-profit business values seep into everything we do, including how we treat our team. Employees drive company microloan decisions and choose how to spend 40 hours of paid volunteer time.

Play dates

Our crew shares a fervent love of live gatherings. You name it—we ticket (and attend) it. Big festivals, small shows. Opera and … punk rock opera. Roller derby. Burlesque. Craft brew openings. Zombie walks. There’s never a dull moment.

Rise and shine

Have a lofty goal? We've got ladders. We encourage transparency between groups, individualism, career planning and inclusion in strategy.

Culture

Death before the daily grind.

We are artists, geeks, musicians, chefs, athletes, rebels, dreamers and lifelong learners passionate about events.

We’re a group that loves to live and lives to love.

But we do take a few things seriously: recycling, composting, working hard and enriching local communities.

Industrial-chic space smack dab inside a music recording complex.

Edinburgh

What if you worked in a castle along the Water of Leith? Magic.
