Our Current Placements
Software Engineer - Website
Pre University Placement
"As soon as I joined viagogo I was immersed in a dynamic and flexible environment. I was introduced to each person of the technology team, meeting different personalities and understanding the company as a whole.
Our team is a young, energetic and connected team, we have complete freedom to discuss the implementation of new frameworks and suggest unique new features everyday. We also keep the site updated with the latest releases and tools available.
Currently I'm in the middle of my 12 month placement, and, in the time I've spent here, I had the opportunity to have hands-on experience on diverse tools that make up the site as a whole: from running database queries, to analyzing business data and, of course, developing new features for the website. Every day is a different day and there is always a challenge to overcome, that's why you never get bored and in the end you can see solid results from your efforts, making real contributions to the business!
More than just an office, here you can make new friends and every day feel more comfortable in your role. Viagogo is a company with well-established goals, well formulated strategies and always in search of innovation. And it's really amazing to be a part of all this!"
Software Engineer - Platform
Bsc. Computer Science
Kings College London
"Working here has simply been amazing. The scope, ambition, and technology here are breathtaking. Everyone here is incredibly talented and I am being mentored by veteran software engineers that have quickly become my heroes. That's the point, beyond the software that you will be exposed to (which is ridiculous), it's about the people you work with and what you work on. Simply, here at viagogo, everyone wants you to succeed and you get to be part of something that impacts millions (yes, millions). As a young software developer, that is what you really want. Especially as a student, this is the best place you can be. The collective passion is wonderful but the work we do here is even better. I work in the platform team and the challenges and work I do on the platform team are so fulfilling. I get to work with two of the most senior and best software engineers I will ever meet and I get to work on real-world problems that seem galactic-- that is how multifaceted and challenging the work here is. Honestly, I do not want to go back to university, it is simply that good here."

M.A. Human Computer Interaction
University College London
"It has been a great experience working at viagogo since I joined here straight after I finished my master degree in Human Computer Interaction. I am always fascinated by the challenging tasks and rapid development process here and excited to see that I can truly make a difference to our product given I am just a graduate. Although titled as a Front-end Engineer, I can take full ownership of the features I am working on, from research and ideation, to UI and UX design and the final implementation, which is exactly what I have dreamed of for my career."
