Car shopping is complicated. At CarGurus, we use data and technology to make it simple, giving people the tools they need to confidently find, buy, finance, or sell a car. The best part? Our work’s made a real impact. We’re the most-visited car-shopping site in the US, and we’re expanding globally. Ready to come along for the ride?
This role will entail selling our products and services to dealerships across the UK. The Account Executive will be strong at presenting CarGurus offerings and benefits as an inside sales professional (primarily over the phone and also via email with some visits to the UK for face-to-face meetings). This is a 'hunting' role - responsible for prospecting new business/building their own pipeline and looking after a dedicated book of business.
Candidates should be persuasive, self-starters and will be expected to manage your own time, set priorities and meet monthly goals. The ideal candidate is tenacious, creative, and entrepreneurial, with the ability to challenge traditional marketing conventions through data and an analytical approach.
The ideal candidate thrives in a fast-paced startup environment and is ready to work for a true challenger brand. As part of a growing team, you must be a great teammate, willing to assist others and share best practices to achieve team success. As a liaison between our dealer partners and the company, you must also be comfortable conveying issues to the rest of the CarGurus organization clearly, and with a thoughtful approach. Candidates must possess strong analytic and presentation skills as the role will interact frequently with marketing, business development, and senior management.
Who You Are:
- 2+ years in an inside sales role with experience in closing deals and leading negotiations
- Numbers-driven, and committed to over-achieving targets consistently
- Good organizational and communication skills!
- Self-motivated and result-driven attitude
- Bachelor's degree ideally with a commercial focus
- Salesforce.com experience
- SaaS sales exposure is a plus!
At CarGurus, we invest in our people’s professional growth with everything from learning and development programs to tuition reimbursement. Want to work on projects that expand your skill set without sacrificing your work/life balance? You got it. We also strive to provide perks and benefits that employees actually care about like free lunch, commuter subsidies, and more. That includes equity in the company—our way of showing that we want you here for the long haul.
We work hard every day to build the world’s most trusted and transparent automotive marketplace, but trust and transparency don’t just apply to our consumers. They extend to our talent, too. We aim to create a workplace where everyone feels they can bring the ultimate expression of themselves and their potential—where you don’t just fit, you thrive. We don’t discriminate based on race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disability, veteran status, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
In addition to the US, CarGurus operates sites in Canada, Germany, Spain, Italy, and the UK—with other markets on the horizon. We have offices in Cambridge, MA; Detroit, MI; Dublin, Ireland; San Francisco, CA and London, UK. Check out our careers page to learn more.
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.
