DoStuff • Senior Software Developer

Want to help save local entertainment scenes? And help people have a great time (at home for now)? Then you should consider joining our team, where you’ll get to build software that does just that.

Why DoStuff

We spent the last 10+ years building strong local brands in 20 cities (Do512, DoNYC, Do312…). Pre Covid we were driving 43 million event attendees and $2.2 billion in spending a year.

Post Covid, we’ve had a lot of success switching to help people find stuff to do [at home] that keeps them connected to their local communities. But, what we’re really focused on now is how do we help cities and our music venue/bar/cultural-arts… partners open back up when it’s safe.

How do we preserve the places that make our cities magic? And ensure a place for DoStuff at the center of local entertainment for decades to come.
