StubHub International (SHI) is a marketplace that provides fans a safe, transparent, and trusted environment to buy and sell tickets for sport and music events all over the world. It allows fans with tickets they can no longer use to recoup part of the money they’ve spent and fans that didn’t have the chance to buy tickets during the on-sale, to access them at any time. Our Purpose: To bring the joy of live to fans globally.

At StubHub International, we are:

  • We put our fans first: A vibrant marketplace needs to earn and keep the trust of Fans - our buyers. We prioritise and work backwards from the Fan, with the conviction that a high trust Fan experience will serve the best interests of sellers and our business in the long-term.
  • We are one team with a purpose: We are stronger together. We collaborate in pursuit of ambitious shared purpose and goals. We empower others to respectfully challenge ideas when they disagree. We debate, decide, and commit.
  • We deliver: We are empowered to make data-driven decisions and take action. We balance quality, effort and speed. We seize opportunities, overcome obstacles and find solutions. We accept full ownership of our commitments and trust others to achieve theirs.
  • We are diverse & inclusive: We believe a diverse and inclusive workplace represents the world we live in, provides an environment for multiple perspectives to be considered, and helps us serve our customers better. We seek to understand and respect others regardless of their background or position.
