About Project Admission:

We are a growing technology company based in Nashville, TN that offers its employees transparent salary, stock options, and the option to work remotely.

Project Admission was founded by Stephen Glicken and Jordan Stone to solve for two of the biggest problems facing the live event industry: 70% of attendees at an event are unknown to the event organizers and millions of dollars are being transacted by scalpers without any benefit to musicians, teams, or event organizers.

We’ve built software that acts as the digital layer between a ticketing company and ticket purchasers, allowing us to track ownership and capture resell revenue.

Our vision: To universally improve the transfer of digital assets.

Our mission statement: Creating a more connected experience for the buying, selling, and distribution of digital assets.

Location:​ Project Admission is based in Nashville, TN. Living in Nashville is not required, but this is a great place to live thanks to no state income tax, a relatively low cost of living, and a booming city with great food and culture, to name a few.

Salary: $110,000/year.
