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, millions of 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!

What you’ll need:

  • A hunger to learn in technology spaces which you have not already been exposed to, as well as the skills to evolve our technology stack to address market change

  • Experience managing a cross-functional team of 2-5 members

  • At least 5 years working with server-side and front-end technologies with a great track record of delivery

  • Understanding of Agile methodologies, along with the knowledge of how best to schedule software delivery across a variety of priorities

  • An attention to detail on delivery of production-grade software including testing, DevOps, monitoring, performance measurement, and incident management

  • Our people! You’ll get to work with talented people

  • Your impact! You will have a tangible impact on the company and the car buying process in the United States (think big!)

Working @ Edmunds.com:

Employees think it’s a pretty great place to work and some pretty impressive publications think it is too: we have been recognized as one of the best places to work by the Fortune Magazine and Great Places to Work, LA Business Journal (for the last 6 years!), Computerworld, and Built in LA. We've also been identified as one of the best workplaces specifically in Technology and also for Diversity and Asian Americans. In fact, our CEO, Avi Steinlauf, was rated as one of Glassdoor's Highest Rated CEOs! If you’re interested in learning more and joining our mission, we’d love to hear from you!

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!

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.
