  • Be a voice and advocate for using data to improve the quality of our decision making
  • Support and influence CarGurus’ Analytics Guild which is a community of analysts and analytics engineers across the company charged with democratizing data
  • Ensure efficient and accurate reporting systems and data management platforms that scale with the business
  • Integrate analysis across disparate data sources including website usage, consumer and dealer behavior patterns and customer insights
  • Present data analysis, visualizations, and insights to key stakeholders

  • Strong statistical knowledge including a working understanding of confidence intervals, test sample sizes, various forms of regression and clustering analyses
  • Knowledge of BI and reporting tools or demonstrated ability in getting up to speed on new tools (e.g. Looker, Tableau, or similar business intelligence tools)
  • Ability to work independently and in a cross-functional setting
  • Familiarity with web and mobile analytics datasets and A/B testing methodologies
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Knowledge and background in online advertising or related industry a plus

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.
