Taking It Up A Notch: Meeting Demand With Talent

Fortune favors the bold. Vivid Seats was growing fast and needed outside help to meet their demand. Hirewell partnered with them to build out teams and leaders with deep ecommerce experience and a Chicago presence needed for aggressive growth.

Founded in 2001, Vivid Seats is a leading online ticket marketplace committed to becoming the ultimate partner for connecting fans to the live events, artists, and teams they love.


Over the last four years, Vivid Seats’ business has gone through multiple periods of rapid growth. Despite a strong talent acquisition team, their hiring demands have required outside support from a partner with:

Deep connections in the ecommerce space
Local presence in Chicago’s tech community to help onboard talent
The ability to help hire across multiple levels, including strategic searches for key senior-level hires


Acting as an extension of the Vivid Seats team on multiple multi-month-long engagements, Hirewell was able to:

Quickly step in and learn the business and hiring needs

Work cross-functionally throughout the organization

Leverage Hirewell’s network of talent throughout the Chicago area.
