Algorithmic Traffic Acquisition Co-op

| Greater Boston Area

Meet CarGurus—the #1 visited online car shopping website in the US. At CarGurus, we’re building the world’s most trusted and transparent automotive marketplace where it’s easy to find great deals from top-rated dealers. 

Founded in 2006 by Langley Steinert (co-founder of TripAdvisor), CarGurus is a technology company with a passion for data and its power to simplify every aspect of the car shopping experience. Using proprietary technology, search algorithms and innovative data analytics, we provide unbiased validation on pricing, dealer reputation and vehicle history.

CarGurus is a technology company first and foremost. That means our engineers are at the heart of everything we do. We're looking for self-motivated engineers, who are passionate about building software that will help drive our mission forward as we continue to grow and scale to build the world's most trusted and transparent automotive marketplace.
As a member on our Algorithmic Traffic Acquisition team, you will work with and learn from senior software engineers and data scientists who dedicate their skills to scaling, analyzing and improving a massive international online advertising effort. Our goal is to bring car shoppers to CarGurus as efficiently as possible. We're central to CarGurus' growth strategy, both in the US and abroad.
One of our core beliefs is that useful data will lead to the best outcomes. We make decisions based on our data and insights. The autonomy in engineering is something we are very proud of and work hard to maintain. There will be great projects that can be both challenging and long term.
What You'll Do:

At CarGurus, we expand our reach by finding new ways to identify car shoppers. We scale our efforts to handle and take advantage of ever-increasing volumes of traffic and data. To be able to do so, we improve our efficiency by developing algorithms and heuristics that analyze our data and adjust bids via partner APIs to show ads to people based on the likelihood that they'll find CarGurus useful.
We advertise on several platforms, in multiple countries, targeting millions of people. Managing, optimizing and bidding all our ads requires efficient and scalable architecture that can update and process large amounts of data. As part of the ATA team, you will learn and help assist our engineers in building and evolving the engine while we expand to new advertising platforms, new countries, and scale up our targeting to hundreds of millions of keywords.

We have a great respect for testing and learning and a healthy aversion to scheduling meetings to discuss meetings. Lunch is catered daily. 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.
