  • Assist in budgeting and forecasting processes.
  • Analyze actual results vs. budgets/forecasts.
  • Design and implement special financial analysis, i.e. business cases.

Who You Are:

  • Strong analytical skills and attention to detail.
  • Strong Excel skills are critical for strategic planning and operational modeling. 
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Working well in a team environment is essential as well as the ability to work independently and seek innovative ways to solve problems.

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.
