Our professionals – technologists, digital strategists, creative designers, customer support experts, and everything in between – deliver a comprehensive suite of digital marketing and operational technology and services to the majority of dealers in the US. We help dealerships optimize their business, and help shoppers to shop and buy the way they prefer, through our Dealertrack and **********-branded products.

The Partner Solutions team within ********** Engineering is responsible for managing and executing the strategic priorities for **********’s partners, and delivering premium-quality solutions against aggressive timelines. The team routinely needs to balance customization against feature enhancement and core product, and often contributes enhancements to the core feature set.

Our Software Engineers:

Our Software Engineers are energetic influencers who have built a world-class software platform, for auto dealers, from the ground up. We’re looking for thinkers at every stage in their career with intensity and creativity to take on the biggest challenges in our industry.

Risk-taking is encouraged here, and we reward great results. Collaboration and support are woven into the fabric of everything we do; from 24-hour Hackathon groups to sprint reviews and scrum teams, you’ll be immersed in an environment that nurtures individualism, creative problem-solving, and intellect.

The Job:

As a Lead Software Engineer, you will work in a collaborative Agile team environment that encourages you to perform at your best, and challenges you to engineer elegant solutions for complex business problems.

We are looking for a Lead Software Engineer with experience developing responsive, single-page applications and the webservices behind them. You will be responsible for development over the full life-cycle of the software, from partnering with product and UX teams during design to automated testing, deployment, and post-release monitoring for several consumer-facing applications designed for mobile and desktop consumption.

Partner Solutions teams take pride in their Agile approach of delivering the highest value work to clients. The nature of that work and the technologies used to deliver the value can vary. We are looking for Software Engineers who want to use multiple technologies across our tech stack to help solve the most challenging client requests. Delivering the client value is the focus, which requires the ability to work throughout our tech stack and potentially utilizing all of the technologies listed below.

Collaborate with other developers on best practices, code reviews, internal tools and process improvements.

Lead and mentor team members as required, assisting in the team’s skill development.

Research, advocate for, and adopt new technologies.

Become an expert in various domains within the automotive industry, particularly the vehicle sales process.
