(based in Los Angeles, Houston, or Work from Home)
Why You Should Work With Us:
Live Nation has built its concerts management system on the Salesforce platform. This system is a rebuild / modernization of a homegrown system that had been refined over 10+ years and is the central nervous system of the North American concerts business. As part of being this central nervous system, this system connects to the other financial, analytics, and operational systems used in the concerts business.
Over the next few years, Live Nation is looking to (i) optimize this system, (ii) build additional features into this system, (iii) expand this system geographically (which will require refinements to address the intricacies of Live Nation’s international business), and (iv) build related applications on the Salesforce platform (e.g., festivals management). This role will be an integral part of these development efforts.
In addition, this role will be part of the team responsible for concerts information systems, financial systems, analytics, integrations, etc. As such, as Live Nation continues to expand the role of technology and data in its concerts business, there will be additional opportunities to contribute beyond the ongoing development of the core application built on the Salesforce platform.
