I have been working for Live Nation for 8 years, unfortunately due to Covid this has come to an end.

During my time at Ticketmaster I was in an operation support and service delivery role. This covered supporting multiple different systems from monitoring servers through to managing DNS for hundreds of domains, to supporting active directory systems. A large part of my time was spent developing Dashboards, reports and alerting systems using Slunk.
I have knowledge of
Splunk (Splunk query language, Dashboards, Alerts, Reports)
Scripting in Perl, Python, Bash, PowerShell, JavaScript, - with good knowledge of SQL and RegEx,
Active directory, DNS, Linux, Windows Patching, Pager duty.

  • Creating Splunk reports to identify unusual traffic patterns. for example detecting bots / bad actors.
    One of the biggest issues Ticketmaster has is people using automated robots to buy tickets before other 'real' people can buy them, so they can sell them with a large mark up on resale sites.
    I created a number of dashboards and reports looking at many different aspects of users journey
    through the website. for example looking at page request rate from the same user ID, or an unusually high number of requests from a single IP or IP range. Also looking for spikes in IP's accessing pages for events in different counties, etc.

  • Writing a pogram using the Splunk API, and Active Directory to assist customer service trace users sessions and identify any errors the customer may have had during their time on the website.
    This greatly reduced the turn around time for this type of customer complaint and reduced the number of tickets sent to other 2/3rd line support teams

    Dashboards designed to monitor server health and look for system errors
    Dashboards designed to give details on the umber of ticket been sold, broken down by type of ticket, venue, number of people waiting in a queue, number of people who have been allocated a ticket but not yet paid for Them etc.
