Our goal is to bring car shoppers to CarGurus as efficiently as possible. We're central to CarGurus' growth strategy, both in the US and abroad. This is a high impact role with exceptional visibility within the company.
We improve our efficiency by developing algorithms and heuristics that analyze our data and adjust bids via partner APIs to show ads to people based on the likelihood that they'll find CarGurus useful. In addition, we expand our reach by finding new ways to identify car shoppers. We scale our efforts to handle and take advantage of ever-increasing volumes of traffic and data.
We advertise on a number of platforms in multiple countries targeting millions of people. Managing, optimizing and bidding all of our ads requires efficient and scalable architecture that can update and process large amounts of data. As a part of the team you will build and evolve the engine while we expand to new advertising platforms, new countries, and scale up our targeting to hundreds of millions of keywords.
One of our core beliefs is that useful data will lead to the best outcomes. We make decisions based on our data and insights. 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.
