Cazoo was founded in 2018 to transform the way people buy and sell used cars.
Our mission is to transform the way people engage with the used car market by providing a transparent, no-pressure buying environment where consumers can simply and seamlessly purchase, finance and buy a used car or subscribe to a new car entirely online.
Cazoo founder & CEO, Alex Chesterman, has already raised 450m in funding from DMG Ventures, Draper Espirit, General Catalyst and Octopus Ventures, amongst others, to expand the Cazoo world. Our accelerated rate of expansion has resulted in Cazoo being crowned the fastest-ever unicorn in the UK, which has lead to us now expanding into Europe and opening an office in Munich!
With Cazoo entering the European market, we are looking to extend and improve upon the services we can provide across our mobile platform. We currently have two mobile applications which we are focused on maintaining whilst we plan for the future and the build of a brand new Cazoo mobile application.
We are now looking to scale our Mobile team and hire a Senior Android Engineer to have significant influence over the decisions we will take over the coming months around tooling, architecture, and processes.
