GURU HQ

At CarGurus, we believe a transparent car shopping experience is better for shoppers and sellers alike, and we innovate constantly to deliver on that promise. Today more than 18 million (and growing) unique monthly visitors use our site and our mobile app to find their next car.

With headquarters in Cambridge, MA, CarGurus has that "start-up feel" (we dislike meetings, play lots of foosball, have catered lunches and fun company outings—the list goes on). Unlike many start-ups, however, we have the advantage of being profitable (since 2010!) with sustained revenue growth. CarGurus is an engineering-driven company with a passion for data, and that drives everything from the speed at which we launch new products to the spirit of innovation that drives our company’s culture.

Senior Software Engineer, Full-Stack & Architecture

Location:
Cambridge

Details

One of our core beliefs is that useful data will lead to the best possible outcomes. We make decisions based on our data and insights. Our engineering team has direct responsibility for revenue and that means everyone codes. Each engineer manages their own products and projects. The autonomy in engineering is something we are very proud of and work hard to maintain. 

There will be great projects that can be both challenging and long term. Your fellow engineers have a diverse background and are always willing to help. We truly don’t schedule meetings but get together as necessary. This gives everyone (even outside of engineering) a very well-balanced life. 

 

What we need:

  •  A full-stack engineer with solid Computer Science fundamentals.
  •  Strong understanding of Data Structures and Algorithms.
  •  Proven experience conceptualizing, developing, testing and releasing product.
  •  Likes to push code daily, has a high standard for quality and design. 
  •  Has worked with A/B Testing methods. Understands how to view data.
  • Able to work independently and collaborate well with many teams beyond engineering.
  • Adaptable and open to learning new technologies.
  •  Strong object oriented design and programming.
