Using proprietary technology, search algorithms and innovative data analytics, we provide unbiased validation on pricing, dealer reputation and vehicle history.

CarGurus is looking to hire a highly motivated Data Engineer to help shape our growing data infrastructure.

What You’ll Do:

  • Create and promote the CarGurus Data Dictionary, a key component of our data analytics strategy. The data dictionary contains the definitions of our core entities, measures, and metrics.
  • Become a trusted advisor to Product, Marketing, Finance and other areas of the business to define and provide data critical to strategy.
  • Maintain and expand ETL and reporting tools.
  • Participate in the design of our overall data collection strategy, including technology, data pipelines, and visualizations.
  • Build a scalable data insight platform that makes every decision data driven.

Who You Are:

CarGurus Culture:

At the core of our company culture is a spirit of innovation, curiosity and collaboration. True to our start-up roots, we’re nimble, flexible and hardworking. We have a great respect for testing and learning and a healthy aversion to scheduling meetings to discuss meetings. Lunch is catered daily. Gym membership is free. Foosball and ping pong are played often. Now a publicly-traded company, we’re as committed as ever to cultivating the culture that got us here.

In addition to the US, CarGurus operates sites in Canada, the UK and Germany with other markets on the horizon. Our offices are located in Cambridge, MA, Detroit, MI and Dublin, Ireland. If you’d like to learn more, please visit our careers page.
