Meet the ‘britelings’ inside Eventbrite’s colorful SoMa digs

They sound like characters from a children’s book, but “britelings” and “barklings” are real occupants at Eventbrite’s office in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood.

The first term refers to employees, the second to their dogs. Ticketing website Eventbrite has a dog-friendly office with a twist: Since the landlord limits the number of dogs in the space at five per day, employees use the Event brite platform to register their pooch for a given day. Dogs are seen at meetings and romping around the office.

Office manager Sara Groton  said: “The barklings are such a huge part of our culture”.

One would expect the office of Eventbrite to be, well, bright. Big windows provide natural light. The office is divided into four color quadrants: yellow, purple, blue and green. In the yellow area, there’s a set of bleachers overlooking South of Market, and a projector so people can use the space for presentations.

Employees work in open spaces around the sides of the office, with a cafeteria in the middle.

Eventbrite moved to 155 Fifth St. from a space at Fifth and Brannan streets. It is leasing the sixth and seventh floors, but all its employees work on the seventh. The sixth is subleased to tech company Slack.

The cafeteria is a spot to gather for meals, talks and events. Lunch is catered four days a week, breakfast once a week. Off to the side, there’s a pingpong table, treadmill desk and arcade games. A Spotify station plays in the background. Employees take hot sauce seriously, with dozens of bottles occupying one shelf. One room in the cafeteria is dedicated to smoothies, with commercial-level Vitamix blenders on hand. On both sides of the cafeteria are walls that can be opened or closed, depending on noise levels and needs.

A nearby “wellness hallway” has mothers’ rooms with hospital-grade breast pumps and refrigerators. The rooms are also used for massage, acupuncture and nutrition sessions. Manicube was giving manicures during our visit. Two bike racks give workers a place to lock up near the lobby, with three orange bikes available to borrow for a weekend or for 24 hours. The company also has a partnership with Bay Area Bike Share to help employees get from the Caltrain terminal to the office.

Even the restrooms are tech-friendly. Each stall has a slot for a laptop, and the room is stocked with dry shampoo and mouthwash. Music plays louder than you’d expect in an office bathroom, while sinks are more modern. (During our visit, we heard the Supremes.)

The larger space has small nooks, two hammocks and meeting rooms. Meeting rooms are named after types of events for which Eventbrite sells tickets. An iPad outside each room lets workers book the room or check its schedule.

Eventbrite collaborated with employees to make its office suitable for transparency and collaboration, and worked with Rapt Studio to make those goals a reality.

“When we were changing spaces, we got feedback from people on our old office and worked with that,” said Groton. “Everyone felt like they were heard in terms of what they were looking for in a new space.”
