Cvent | Technology | Washington, DC

A best friend's wedding, a 10th anniversary party, BlizzCon, AWS re:Invent, The Grammys, a first concert, the opening of a new museum - we all have a favorite event.
 
Events and meetings make an impact that lasts a lifetime. As more of our lives are spent online, the time offline is truly rare. So, our goal is to make it easy to bring great people together, face-to-face.
With more than 4.5 million successful events brought to life using our award-winning event management platform, we'd say we're well on our way. As we look to the future, we're focused on continuing to innovate and create the best technology to bring joy through the power of in-person connection. And that's where you come in!
 
If you want a job where there’s more enthusiasm than there is red tape, where ideas are sought after and celebrated, and where hard work changes the course of human history, then Cvent and our newest acquisition, Social Tables, may be the place for you!
 
At Social Tables, Lead Software Engineers have a deep understanding of JavaScript fundamentals and architecture. They are also explicitly charged with vetting the technical rigor of our solutions, within their team. They are able to focus on both the breadth of our software, as well as the depth.

Technologies We Use
We write full-stack JavaScript.
We use Node.js on the server.
We prefer Restify for APIs, GraphQL for web apps.
We use LaunchDarkly for feature flagging.
We use React on the browser, and when we need more complex state management on the browser, we use Redux.
We use Three.js/WebGL for our 3D visualizations.
We build our browser assets with Webpack.
We use MySQL for our database storage.
We use AWS for our infrastructure, deploying services with ECS and Lambda.
We develop on our local machines, not in the cloud.
 
Cvent offers a fun, collegial work environment tailored to sharpening your technical skills and growing as a software professional. While we have evolved from startup to mid-sized company, our Technology Team has preserved an entrepreneurial and merit-driven culture where meaningful initiative and contribution are recognized and rewarded.
