Meet the Britelings

The Britelings are a varied bunch. The team embodies the wide spectrum of events on Eventbrite—from musicians to marathon runners, foodies to fundraisers. The thing that unites us is our dedication to helping people get together to share the things they are excited about. That's what gets us out of bed and excited to come to work to continue building an innovative platform that supports shared experiences.
