Amazon is looking into expanding its ticketing business into Europe, Asia and maybe the United State, Recode reported.
The company already launched Amazon Tickets in the UK last year. The site sells tickets for comedy, music and theatre shows like Stomp , Wicked and Kinky Boots .
However, a job posting suggests the company is taking Amazon Tickets to other places. The career listing also shows the company might merge up Amazon Tickets with Amazon Prime to make Prime Tickets. The combo could be easier for customers who already have an account with Amazon Prime.
The job listing says the company is looking to hire new employees “to develop our international expansion strategy for Europe and Asia,” according to Recode.
“[O]ur vision goes beyond just selling tickets as we aim to disrupt the entire live entertainment experience, including what happens before, during and after the show,” a job post says, Recode reported. “The ticketing business is ripe for innovation and improvement, as much of the industry has not fundamentally changed since the 1970s.”
Amazon Tickets is also looking for employees to work at its headquarters in Seattle, hinting plans for a U.S. launch.
“We are continuously building and inventing systems that make it easier to add more and more shows to our catalog and effortless for our customers to find and buy tickets to the shows that they want to attend,” the company says in the job post. “From a technology point of view, selling tickets online create many challenges of scale and complexity that result from being the intersection between software and the physical world.”
