Using proprietary technology, search algorithms and innovative data analytics, we provide unbiased validation on pricing, dealer reputation and vehicle history.

CarGurus is looking for skilled UI Engineers who can help drive our ongoing evolution of industry leading products.

  • Contribute to front-end infrastructure focused on scaling and performance.
  • Have a say in future direction of technologies and best practices. 

Who You Are:

  • Strong expertise in HTML, CSS (LESS), JavaScript, and jQuery
  • Experience with ReactJS or similar framework
  • An eye for UX design
  • Creating mockups, prototypes, and writing production ready code
  • Solid web design, layout, typography and iconography skills
  • Familiarity with Git or other control systems
  • Leveraging our data and helping to build A/B tests to decide which features to keep
  • Working with server side templates (E.g. Freemarker)

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.

About CarGurus

At CarGurus, we believe a transparent car shopping experience is better for shoppers and sellers alike, and we innovate constantly to deliver on that promise. Today more than 20 Million (and growing) unique monthly visitors use our site and our mobile app to find their next car. With headquarters in Cambridge, MA, CarGurus has that "start-up feel"​ (we dislike meetings, play lots of foosball, have catered lunches and fun company outings—the list goes on). Unlike many start-ups, however, we have the advantage of being profitable (since 2010!) with sustained revenue growth. CarGurus is an engineering-driven company with a passion for data, and that drives everything from the speed at which we launch new products to the spirit of innovation that drives our company’s culture.
