Car shopping is complicated. At CarGurus, we use data and technology to make it simple, giving people the tools they need to confidently find, buy, finance, or sell a car. The best part? Our work makes a real impact. We’re the most-visited car-shopping site in the US and we are growing fast in our international markets. Ready to come along for the ride? 

Our product engineering team, Wholesale, is looking for an Engineering Manager to join the team in Cambridge, MA. On the Wholesale team you will help define and complete a product suite that underpins a rapidly expanding revenue stream within CarGurus. Your team will be responsible for initiatives that have impact both within CarGurus and at our business partners. As part of our fast-moving team, you will help to define processes that help us meet the business needs and scale our engineering team into the future. Potential project opportunities: create APIs to allow partners to integrate into our services, create features to drive customer conversion and satisfaction, collaborate with our CarGurus teams to develop tools used by hundreds of engineers, develop integrations with third parties to unlock new markets.  

What You’ll Do: 

Leadership: We’re seeking an individual who embodies CarGurus’ Leadership Principles to build a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative. We envision a workplace where everyone feels they can bring the ultimate expression of themselves and their potential to work every day – where they don’t just fit, they thrive. 

  • Lead yourself: Our leaders are intentional about how they show up, manage themselves, and take responsibility for their decisions and the impact they have on others. 
  • Create a shared purpose: Our leaders tap into motivation by aligning people around a common purpose. They connect strategy and success by focusing their teams on clear objectives and helping people understand how their individual roles contribute to our collective Mission. 
  • Inspire ownership and accountability: Our leaders create a shared commitment to success and therefore a mutual accountability for results. They enable and empower other but know when to roll up their sleeves and provide support. The best leaders develop more leaders. 
  • Communicate openly: Our leaders communicate proactively and transparently about goals, challenges, and opportunities. They listen with the intent to understand. They seek opportunities to collaborate across the business. 
  • Invest in growth: Our leaders embody a growth mindset. They challenge themselves and their teams to be curious and actively seek opportunities for learning and improvement, even when it’s uncomfortable. 
  • Cultivate environments of respect and trust: Our leaders care about people. They value diverse perspectives and are committed to building a culture where everyone can show up as themselves and do their best work together! 

Influencing and inspiring engineers will be paramount in the success of this role. You will facilitate cross-team collaboration between multiple engineering teams, Product Management, UX Design, Analytics, Sales, Operations, and Customer Success. You will use your leadership expertise to drive groups with disparate interests to decisions, seeing these through to impact. You will be able to help make pragmatic decisions, balancing strategic and tactical needs. You will help Senior Leadership manage engineering risk and make sure we are making the right trade-off calls.  

Technical Expertise: This is a player coach role in which you will be an important influence to core projects and experimental work. When presented with a complex problem, process, or existing system, you can reduce its complexity to get more done with less work. You will collaborate with tech leads and engineers throughout the organization to provide technical guidance. Your technical guidance will mean team members working with you will feel like they are going to leave with something significantly better than they arrived with and will have learned something along the way.  

  • Lead whiteboard sessions and architecture design conversations while engineering a solution to the challenges at hand. 
  • Ensure your team writes clean, well-tested, and efficient code. 
  • Collaborate with product management, data analysts and other engineers to identify and scope opportunities 
  • Contribute to roadmap definition 
  • Make data driven decisions 
  • Monitor and improve upon the performance of products and solutions 
  • Be an owner of critical pieces of software 

Who You Are: 

  • 5+ years of product software development experience 
  • 1-3 years of leadership experience 
  • Expertise with JavaScript or Java and cursory knowledge of the other 
  • Understanding of MySQL or similar relational database 
  • Strong project management skills, experience with Agile methodologies a plus 
  • People focused technical leader with high Emotional Intelligence  
  • Excellent collaborator with demonstrated experience working in a cross-functional team including Product, Design, Analytics 
  • Excellent communicator who can tailor message based on audience which can range from junior engineer to senior business leader to third-party vendor
  • Detail oriented leader who makes data driven decisions
