Our engineering organization takes pride in building innovative products that make our customers successful. We are passionate about building great software while having fun doing it. The result is an award-winning culture in which everyone is approachable, ideas are judged on their merits, and healthy, empowered people drive transformative technology.

Job Summary:

As a Software Engineer II, you’ll work on our Automotive Marketing Platform (AMP) product that is changing the way dealers are marketing to customers through email, CRM tasks, text messaging, direct mail, and Facebook with more channels to come.  Our applications are written in .NetCore and AWS.  We use New Relic, Splunk, and PagerDuty to monitor and alert on our platform.

We own and are responsible for our applications from design, development, testing, deployment, and support.  Our infrastructure is a mix of on-prem and AWS, and we manage it using Terraform.  We use CI/CD best practices to develop, test, and deploy our applications.  We use a wide variety of AWS services, including but not limited to Elastic Beanstalk, Elastic Container Service, Lambdas, SQS, Dynamo DB, Terraform, and RDS to process a large volume of data, work with products and architects to learn, and apply those learnings to future product and technical development.  Our engineering organization supports addressing technical debt. In addition to working with product owners to prioritize and fix defects as necessary, we reserve one sprint a quarter to work on things that are bugging us.  This can include but is not limited to cleaning up noisy alerts, automating manual processes, and revisiting code if we think there’s a better way to do it using the tools we have available.  We have an annual Hackathon with winners going on to compete at a higher level within our parent company.  We have time reserved on the calendar annually to learn more about both internal and external products.  If you want to work on highly performant software running at scale in the cloud, with the ability to both learn new technologies and have an impact on our ability to succeed as a team, organization, and company, this job is for you.
