HYDERABAD, India, Feb. 22, 2024 -- Eventbrite, Inc. (NYSE: EB), a global events marketplace that serves event creators and event goers in nearly 180 countries, has hired Himanshu Verma as VP Engineering and Country Lead for its Development Hub in India. Verma will oversee Eventbrite's development team in India, which builds the cutting edge cloud, mobile and marketplace technology that transforms how millions of people around the world organise and attend events.




Verma's career spans more than two decades of engineering and product development leadership at some of India's and the world's largest and best known tech companies, including Oracle, Yahoo!, Flipkart, and most recently, Amazon.


Verma comments: "I'm incredibly excited to join Eventbrite's team in India. What makes this company special is that we use advanced online technologies, like AI, to bring people together in real life, at unique live experiences all over the world. Eventbrite makes it easier and more seamless than ever to organise and promote, and also, to discover and join exciting events everywhere. And our team in India plays a crucial role in making it happen."


Verma will report directly to Eventbrite CTO Vivek Sagi, who adds: "Himanshu is an exceptional engineering leader with proven expertise in growing and scaling talent, systems and products. He joins Eventbrite at an exciting moment in our company's history as we continue to grow our footprint in India."


Sagi adds: "Eventbrite's flexible-first workplace culture and our focus on diversity play a large role in our ability to recruit the best talent across India. Our staff here work just like their counterparts in Europe or the US, and can decide where they do their best work: in our Hyderabad office, hybrid, or fully remote from anywhere in India. At the same time — and in keeping with our mission to bring the world together through live experiences — we regularly facilitate real life connections between our employees. That's a strong differentiator for us, as we continue to hire the best talent across India."
