**** We are growing quickly and looking to hire ambitious, intelligent, and talented people to help expand our business. ****
The viagogo Group, with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, has offices in London, New York and San Francisco. The London office, operated by VGL Services, is the group’s worldwide tech centre and is currently recruiting a SQL Server DBA (all applications are direct to viagogo Group’s HR Internal Technology Team and not via a third party). If web technology/eCommerce are your passions then we are the company for you!
Although the position will begin as a junior (with full support and training provided for all of the company’s BI projects), you will eventually transition to the point where you are responsible for managing a substantial part of your workload, driving the adoption of internal BI and recommending appropriate projects to ensure maximum value delivered to the business.
This is an outstanding opportunity for someone with a desire to develop a career in BI to gain exposure to the full project lifecycle across a wide variety of technologies. We encourage continuous learning and you will be expected to keep abreast of the latest developments and propose enhancements to existing systems and processes.
viagogo is the world’s largest ticket marketplace, with local language websites in nearly 30 countries. We provide a secure online exchange platform that enables consumers to buy and sell tickets to live sports and entertainment events, even when they are sold out at the box office.
Our role is to help consumers avoid the inferior customer experience of online auction sites and street sellers:
• All tickets purchased are protected by our guarantee
• Your money is safe as we don’t pay the seller until after you’ve attended the event
• Your tickets are delivered by a secure method, either electronically or by courier
• You will receive a high level of customer service
Many of the world’s leading sports and entertainment properties partner with viagogo to help them control and manage the resale market for their tickets. We work with football clubs in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands, including half the English Premier League (eg Chelsea FC and Manchester City FC), 10 Bundesliga clubs (eg Bayern Munich and Schalke 04) and Paris Saint-Germain FC. In tennis, we have official partnerships with the Roland-Garros French Open, the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals and the BNP Paribas Masters. In entertainment, we are the official ticket marketplace of the Isle of Wight Festival, the Boyzone BZ20 Anniversary Tour and Madonna’s recent European tours.
Independent research* shows eight out of 10 consumers prefer to use a secure marketplace like ours because it offers peace of mind and a guarantee that tickets will be delivered securely in time for the event. More than half of those surveyed said they would trust a ticket site more if it had official partnerships in sport and music.
