Ready to take the challenge and help us scale our leading regional event platform to a global level?

We are looking for a highly experienced and motivated engineer to take over the role of Entrio CTO and become the crucial link of the platform's development and global scaling. Up until now, our CEO, Bero, was also a CTO in practice, but the time has come for him to focus more on company strategy, product development and management.

Entrio is a powerful, self-service ticketing platform established in 2011., selling tickets for over 1.000 concerts, festivals, theatres and conferences in SEE region yearly. In the past year, we successfully upgraded Entrio platform with virtual event, streaming and VoD functionalities which enabled us to deliver over 100 great virtual and hybrid events in the past several months.

We are a team of 10 event lovers, based in Zagreb and last month we raised a VC investment and are now starting our international expansion.

As our new CTO, you will be in charge of coordinating our development team (currently a team of 3, which we expect to double by the end of the year) and external development partners, communicating with business side of the company, coordinating and choosing the right architecture with system engineers, planning deployment and automation scripts, choosing right technologies and 3rd party services, project management, prioritizing, writing and assigning tasks to developers as well as test them (until we expand our team with a project manager) and making sure that all our tech works like a charm. 

Of course, you will also be involved in product development and help us shape the roadmap of Entrio platform.

Big and interesting challenges and even bigger opportunities are in front of us.

Are you ready to take the challenge and join us on our exciting journey of changing the global event industry? ;)
