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 makes a real impact. We’re the most-visited car-shopping site in the US and we are growing fast in our international markets. Ready to come along for the ride?
The Sales Account Manager will focus on maintaining and expanding CarGurus’ existing customer base in Canada through the analysis of performance data, re-negotiation of subscription rates, prospecting of potential up-sell and cross-sell opportunities, and mitigation of customer churn. Additionally, Sales Account Managers are responsible for active account management including, but not limited to, addressing and resolving all issues that customers may encounter with their subscriptions. Traveling into the market (Canada) may be required on an ad-hoc basis, for marketing events, and or important client meeting(s). As a seasoned sales professional, it is critical that candidates be persuasive and self-motivated, as they will be expected to manage their own time, set priorities, forecast their pipelines, and meet monthly goals.
CarGurus’ growing customer base will have various concerns and questions about CarGurus, so candidates will need to employ routine customer service skills, be able to listen and respond to dealers, and resolve all issues in a timely manner. In this role, candidates must also be comfortable conveying issues to the larger CarGurus organization. As such, candidates must bring strong analytical thinking, presentation, and problem-solving skills.
Who You Are:
- 2-5 years of sales experience in a closing role
- Bachelor’s Degree
- Strong sense of customer service
- Sales pipeline forecasting experience a plus
- Good organizational & problem-solving abilities
- Able to adapt to change within a rapidly evolving business environment
- Strong internal motivation
- Industry experience a plus

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 and the UK. 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.
