About the team and position

Do you have a natural curiosity to build new technologies? Are you the type of person who taught themselves a new JavaScript library just for fun? If so, join a dynamic team of engineers aimed at bringing the latest in web application development to a whole new way to buy a car. We are a fast-growing team that is focused on performance, scalability, and reliability to provide the best experience to our customers, both internal and external.

We are looking for a passionate leader to help us create better development velocity and efficiency. You will bring discipline and care to implementation practices.  You are familiar with Agile/Scrum processes, grok common design patterns, embrace clean coding principles, frequently practice TDD, and employ many other techniques in an effort to bring a high level of software craftsmanship to your finished product. You see regular code reviews as opportunities to learn from and educate your talented peers, and you're excited to constructively participate.


What you’ll be doing

Carvana Engineering Team Leads work closely with Product Managers and Engineering Managers to define the vision, direction, and objectives for all projects in your team. In this role, you can expect to...

  • Energetically and deftly react to rapidly evolving business needs and requirements.
  • Find solutions to unexpected technical challenges and seek out opportunities to contribute to the meteoric growth of our business, enrich our culture, and improve the quality of our tools, code, and processes.

  • Contribute directly to the development of applications that your team is working on.
  • Understand that the talent on your team is the most important resource that you control. 
  • Constantly look for ways to cultivate, direct, guide, and nurture the members of your team to help them attain personal goals while providing sustainable and significant business value.

  • 5+ years of experience in .NET development (C#, ASP.NET, MVC, Web API, WCF) and/or web-based front-end development (JavaScript, AJAX, JQuery, HTML 5, CSS, React).
  • Experience leading effective development teams. 
  • A comprehensive understanding of software craftsmanship ideals - clean code principles, unit testing fundamentals, design pattern selection and application, architectural pattern selection, and application.
  • Should be familiar with the DOM, DOM manipulation, and the ins and outs of asynchronous web development including a strong JavaScript skill set.
  • An understanding and experience in application security from the web service and web application perspective.
  • A good understanding of design patterns and N-Tier architecture.
  • A Bachelor’s Degree or higher in a related field, or professional experience working with related technologies.
  • Carvana developers work very closely with strong supporting teams and require great interpersonal skills including a positive attitude and sense of humor (read that last part twice, if necessary).


It would be great if you also had

  • Experience working in a cloud-based software development environment, preferably with Azure.
  • Understanding of DevOps best practices and principles.
  • Experience working in a hyper-growth environment.
