Company Overview

CarGurus.com uses data-driven technology to help consumers find the best car deals from car dealers and sellers they can trust. Founded in 2006 by Langley Steinert, also a co-founder of TripAdvisor, we’re now the largest and fastest growing auto-shopping website in the US.  We are expanding internationally with sites in the UK, Canada and soon to be in Germany. 

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, CarGurus has that "start-up feel". We dislike meetings, play lots of foosball, have catered lunches and fun company outings. Unlike many start-ups, however, we have the advantage of being profitable (for 8 + years!) with sustained revenue growth. We are an engineering-driven company with a passion for data, and that data drives everything from the speed at which we launch new products to the spirit of innovation that drives our company’s culture.

CarGurus is an auto shopping website that uses data and technology to help car shoppers search local car listings and quickly find the best deals from the best-rated dealers. We’re now one of the most popular car shopping sites in the U.S. and the fastest growing, with nearly 20 million unique monthly visitors. We’re also beginning to expand internationally.

What is it like to work at your company in terms of your culture?

As a tech start up that was founded in 2006, we have maintained that ‘start-up’ feel. We’re highly collaborative, we move fast, we embrace (and test) new ideas constantly, and we’re very much driven by a passion for innovation. The fact that CarGurus has resonated so much with consumers makes the work even more exciting. Plus we have an incredible team of fun, smart, talented people here – it’s really an amazing place to work.

What’s the best way to get a job at CarGurus?

Reach out. You can find our job openings on our VentureFizz BIZZpage or on our website.  If you are qualified and interested, we want to hear from you.

What can someone expect during the interview process?

We keep it simple.  Since most of our top candidates are working, we are flexible with phone interviews and the on-site interview process.  We do our best to keep it to one on- site for that reason. We test candidates on what they know and their problem solving skills, so prepare to be challenged! Once we have the candidate and team's feedback, final decisions are quickly made. 

Are there any favorite activities that the employees do outside of the office? (examples:  company outings, charitable events, etc.)

Our Fun Friday events, held quarterly (sometimes more frequently) are huge highlights here at CarGurus. We’ll take the day off and find some fun, different activity to do as a company. We’ve sea kayaked in Essex, MA, raced cars at F-1, played paddle tennis tournaments...the list goes on. 

         
Do you have any unique benefits or perks? 

We have many (many, many) company perks, and they are an integral part of work-life and culture here. Most of those perks revolve around food and fun: catered lunch twice a week, a fully stocked kitchen (with a Whole Foods grocery list to which we all contribute), beer on tap, company cocktails every Friday afternoon, a game room to feed our foosball/FIFA obsessions. We also do a quarterly “Fun Friday” event as a company out of the office – events have ranged from F-1 car racing to sea kayaking. On the more traditional benefits front, we offer excellent health benefits plus commuter passes, a free gym membership at a local gym, plus a corporate HubWay membership.  All new employees get a new iPad too.

What’s on tap or in your fridge?

We rotate beers regularly, but right now we have Peak Organic Octoberfest.  Our fridge and kitchen is stocked weekly with anything our employees add to the grocery list: fresh fruit, yogurt, snacks, etc. We are never lacking for food or drink here.
