Senior Developer in Search Engine Marketing and Site Analytics

Location:
Cambridge, MA
Experience:
5+ years
Education:
Bachelor's/Master's in CS or Mathematics

Environment

  • Ruby on Rails
  • MySQL
  • Subversion

Details

Solve hard problems. Engineer your solutions. Have an impact.

In this role you will improve the efficiency and scope of our customer acquisition efforts, analyze site usage, and help shape development priorities. Smart ideas have the potential to meaningfully grow the company. The right candidate will be excited to apply and stretch their skills by solving hard problems and developing heuristics and algorithms in pursuit of such growth.

Customer acquisition is accomplished via search engine marketing (SEM), display ads, and remarketing. Our SEM campaign has tested over 47 million keywords, of which about 440 thousand are being actively shown. Keyword discovery, efficient bidding, and revenue attribution are the important problems in this space.

We need someone who can hit the ground running. In addition to being a great engineer, you should be able to talk intelligently about the statistics of testing (e.g. confidence in the result of an A/B test), write SQL queries, use regressions, and be comfortable working with messy real-world data. Knowledge of R, Awk, and machine learning are all pluses.

CarGurus is a data-driven company; we track everything. Converting data to insights is the art and the challenge. Insights backed by data drive the direction the company takes.

CarGurus is a fast-growing company. We're the fourth largest non-OEM car site in the US, and have been roughly doubling in size every year.

CarGurus has a great culture; this is a damn fun place to work. The work is challenging and interesting, the hours are flexible and reasonable, our colleagues are smart and fun, and there are no barriers between us and the leadership of the company.

Our Approach

  • We brainstorm new ideas, throw them at the wall, and analyze data to determine what sticks.
  • We don't write tech specs - we don't expect you to either.
  • We push new code daily, and hold ourselves to our own coding standards.
  • We're reshaping online car shopping just like our TripAdvisor experience revolutionized travel.

Join our Team

If you have experience with our development environment (or similar technologies), have a passion for code, and love the startup vibe (without the risk), we'd love to hear from you.
