Meet CarGurus—the #1 visited online car shopping website in the US. At CarGurus, we’re building the world’s most trusted and transparent automotive marketplace where it’s easy to find great deals from top-rated dealers.

Founded in 2006 by Langley Steinert (co-founder of TripAdvisor), CarGurus is a technology company with a passion for data and its power to simplify every aspect of the car shopping experience. Using proprietary technology, search algorithms and innovative data analytics, we provide unbiased validation on pricing, dealer reputation and vehicle history.

CarGurus is seeking a Senior Business Intelligence Analyst to join the FP&A team in support of the Sales and Marketing organization. The Business Intelligence function under FP&A is responsible for the analytical rigor behind reporting, forecasting, and financial modeling. The ideal candidate should be a logical thinker who excels at complex problem-solving and is able to synthesize information from disparate data sources for a wide range of audiences.

Primary day-to-day responsibilities will require digging into the data and executing analyses that support decisions that are immediately impactful. This role requires a balanced focus on growth, innovation, operations and process improvement with a unique focus on data analytics. Success in this role requires an analytical mindset, curiosity, an interest in solving data problems, and the ability to translate data insights into proposed clear, logical and motivating actions.

What You'll Do:

  • Work directly with functional VPs, Directors, and other senior management providing specialized support to enable decision-making
  • Support internal business leaders with weekly, monthly and quarterly operational and financial reporting
  • Identify and analyze trends to highlight problems to address or opportunities to pursue
  • Analyze existing and potential market opportunity to enable decisions on sales strategy
  • Analyze the company’s financial performance
  • Collaborate with engineering and operations teams on data integrity and process improvements 

Who You Are:

  • 3-5 years of experience in BI, Operations, FP&A or other analytical role
  • Proficient with SQL
  • Advanced Excel skills
  • Strong communication skills both verbal and written
  • Comfort with complex interconnected logic and ambiguity
  • Looker, Tableau or other BI tool experience a plus
  • Experience in technology and/or SAAS preferred

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.
