An Insider's view of Edmunds

What’s the vibe like in the office?

This is not your average corporate office. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. While we're here to get work done, not everything is all business. People here understand the importance of human relationships. Not only are we co-workers, but many of us are also friends, close ones even. To top it off, our office is fun and encouraging to take breaks!

Denise

Technical Lead

What does your typical day look like?

Each day I start by building the Edmunds story from the ground up. Using our own unique reporting tools and in collaboration with our product, analytics and marketing team, I can speak to the value of Edmunds. Once this information is complied, I head out to meet with our dealer partners to go over program results, listen, assess their needs.

Account Executive, Major Accounts

What makes someone successful on your team?

I have grown more here than any other company. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to move between several teams. Each time, it challenged me to pick up new skills. Edmunds has a culture of continuous learning. In my time here, I have participated in study groups to learn: programming language theory, machine learning, and iOS development.

Carlos

Director, Digital Futures Engineering

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Great ideas are the heartbeat of the Edmunds editorial team and they can come from anywhere. Everyone is encouraged to contribute and we have regular feature meetings where concepts are presented, discussed and evolved. As Editor-in-Chief, I love to be challenged by an idea and it’s hugely rewarding to see them come to fruition.

V.P., Editorial and Editor in Chief

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Edmunds as an IT manager. Now, I manage a team of 100 employees supporting our B2B dealer business. In 18 years, I have grown beyond my own expectations. From the moment I joined the company, each of my professional needs were met. Continued learning, peer support, skills development and opportunities for advancement greet me every day.
