Entry Level

Hi, we're Fever!

Fever is the leading global tech-enabled entertainment discovery platform with a clear mission: to inspire through live entertainment.

Over the past 8 years, we have built the largest ecosystem for experience discovery and purchase in the world. We combine a marketplace that allows both discovery/inspiration and seamless 2-click booking with a media network where our online communities can look for inspiration and local information (Secret Media Network owner of media outlets like Secret NYC, Secret London or Madrid Secreto among others). Jointly, we are reaching over 80 million people every month to discover the best experiences in their cities. We complement all this with the power of our own Fever Originals - events created based on the preferences expressed by local communities. These are proprietary experiences in which we follow a data-driven content creation strategy, using analytics to understand audiences, develop and optimize new formats. Some successful examples include the “Candlelight Concert Series” attended by over 3 million guests, the Los Angeles based “Stranger Things Experience” co-produced with Netflix, or the “Mad Hatter G&T Party”, all launched in multiple cities across the world.

Fever is a US company with a team of over 1,000 people, currently present in more than 85 cities, with offices in many exciting cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, or Sydney. Cities are at the core of what we do and we look for people who thoroughly understand the value of the local ecosystems. Fever has raised over $300m in funding and is backed by leading institutional investors, including Goldman Sachs, Accel, and Atresmedia among others.

In order to pursue this objective we are looking for bar-raisers, people that want to work hard, have fun, and make history with us.
