About TodayTix Group:

TodayTix Groupis an ambitious, passionate, and dynamic team on a mission to find a seat for everyone, and redefine the way culture and commerce intersect.  

Founded in 2013, TodayTix Group is the premier discovery and ticketing partner for cultural events across the globe. Through our growing portfolio of innovative brands, including TodayTix, Show-Score, and Broadway Roulette, and a growing roster of over 15,000 global theatres, producers, and cultural institutions, we take the drama out of securing tickets. 

In early 2022, we welcomed Goldstar to our family. TodayTix Group, with Goldstar, sells more than 8 million tickets annually and has featured over 250,000 distinct productions across its channels. And it’s just the beginning. 

During an especially challenging period for theatre and live events, we are fortunate to offer steady, reliable support to our partners by fueling a simple, accessible, and tech-enabled way for consumers to safely find favorites and discover new shows and experiences. With multiple funding rounds from hospitality veterans and established firms like Great Hill Partners, we are creating stable opportunities to ensure the industry emerges from this dark period stronger than ever.  

We want people of all backgrounds to see themselves represented and included in our work, so we actively seek to diversify our team and bring more voices to the table. All applicants are welcome!
