AutoFi is on a mission to bring innovation and excitement back to the car buying process. We have created a seamless digital purchase experience connecting dealers, the manufacturer, lenders, and the consumer. We believe that every consumer should not be spending countless hours filling out paperwork.

  • There are only 24 people in the company so growth potential is super high.

  • Our company values are 100% carried out but the executive team + leadership: Empathy, Humility, Ownership, Grit, & Curiosity.

  • The openness to innovation and new ideas is amazing. We are instilling creative approaches to internal hackathons, referral programs, + employee happiness.


Engineering at AutoFi
Engineering team and processes

Our teams are organized in pods that include Business lead (reporting into the CEO), Product Manager, Designer (when required), Engineering, Dealer/customer support (when required), QA

The leadership team lays out the strategic vision and goals for the year. That gets translated into quarterly plans (with input from everyone in the company) and OKRs. Everyone and every team is aligned to one or more OKRs.

The team plans the quarter to deliver the OKRs. They run bi-weekly sprints starting with planning on Mondays. Every engineer demos what got built every friday to the whole company. Each team also organizes weekly retrospectives to learn and improve. PM / Designers organizes story/product brainstorm sessions as required.

We use GitHub PR for code reviews. Every PR requires two +1s to be merged into master. Every check-in requires an appropriate level of code-coverage unit as well as client-side tests. (We are currently at 98% coverage). The PR needs to pass our automated test suite before it gets deployed into production.

Technical Challenges
  • delivering a consistent financing experience across multiple browsers, devices, environments etc
  • integrating with multiple lenders and normalizing response to drive our experience
  • scaling our tools and systems that allows dealers to customize the checkout experience without requiring any technical know how
  • normalizing pricing across entities
Projects you might work on
  • You would get the chance to impact the core product as well as experimental projects. Our product, although white-labeled, will be viewed by millions of car buyers.
