Senior UI Engineer Eventbrite

Ben is a Christian, a husband and a father with over 10 years of experience developing for the web. He is a Senior UI Engineer on Eventbrite’s Frontend Platform team.

Prior to Eventbrite, Ben spent nearly 9 years at Zazzle where he started out as an entry-level UI Engineer straight out of college and grew to eventually become its UI Architect. At Zazzle, Ben implemented multiple iterations of the product details pages and design tools as well as architected and developed Zazzle’s server- and client-side UI framework.

Ben attended Stanford University and received both a B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science with an HCI concentration. His strong computer science background, coupled with his HCI training and passion for building web sites, has provided him with a unique set of skills where he is able to get nitty gritty with hardcore back-end developers as well as work through challenging UX issues with designers and product managers.

On the side, Ben also enjoys playing basketball, watching movies, and blogging (benmvp.com) and tweeting (@benmvp) about his experiences with new web development technologies.
