Senior Software Engineer

| Santa Monica

At Edmunds we’re driven to make car buying easier. Ever since we began publishing printed car guides in the 60’s, the company has been in the business of trust, innovating ways to empower and support car shoppers. When Edmunds launched the car industry’s first Internet site in 1994, we established a leadership position online and have never looked back. Now, as one of the most trusted review sites on the Internet, almost 20 million visitors use our research, shopping and buying tools every month to make an easy and informed decision on their next car. For consumers, we bring peace of mind. For dealers, we make tools to help them solve their problems and sell more cars. How do we do it, you ask? The key ingredients are our enthusiastic employees, progressive company culture and cutting-edge technology. Want to join the team? Read on to find out how!

Insider's spotlight

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!

Technical Lead

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.
