Live Nation Entertainment, the world’s leading live entertainment and eCommerce group, comprises four companies: Ticketmaster.com, Live Nation Concerts, Front Line Management Group and Live Nation Networks. Being a global event ticketing leader and one of the world’s top five eCommerce sites, Ticketmaster.com has 26 million unique visitors monthly.
TicketMaster’s goal was to extend existing web services and re-platform legacy parts of the system to modern high performance technologies. Being a world leader in online tickets, LiveNation has strict requirements towards the system stability and scalability, PCI DSS and other compliances. To deliver the best in class shopping experience, the company services must support easy to use functionality, most of existing payment methods, sophisticated loyalty programs and deep integration with social services.
Addressing the major challenge of moving the services to new technologies, Provectus’s recruiting department carefully examined job requirements and promptly started the search for candidates. Live Nation management was constantly aware of the recruitment process of the team members, often participating in interviewing themselves. Team building was organized by successive hiring of senior, middle and junior developers, thus building a solid pyramid of highly qualified professionals who were ready to start a new job.
Provectus provided agile teams of 50 experts who worked solely with TicketMaster.com in an outstanding environment of mutual understanding of the corporate principles, methodologies and organizational structure.
