Working at Carvana

We hire very directly to our seven core values, and those values are centered around customer experience, collaboration, bravery, creativity, kindness, and scrappyness.

Diversity and Inclusion

We have a D&I committee that has created programs for interdepartmental career paths for those employees who might not be the traditional candidate for the role. We have also edited our candidate slates and interview panels to ensure diversity.

Top-down servant leadership, extremely involved talent development, in-depth leadership training, and quarterly employee engagement pulses.

We have Carvana Communities. As of now they are: Pride (LGBTQ), Empowher (women), BEACON (black), Advance (Asian), and CarVets (military). Each of these communities has executive leadership and involvement, as well as a very visible presence throughout our daily corporate functions and communications.
