Engineering at Rocket Auto

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team is organized into full stack horizontal squads. You'll be working on every part of the system , from the frontend widget, to a big data backend, machine learning pipeline. Each squad self-organizes and uses a lightweight Kanban process.

Technical Challenges

Building a marketplace where buyers, sellers, car dealers, car brands, financers, and insurers, all come together to facilitate a car sale. Connecting all of these touch points is the Rocket Auto platform. We deal with interesting data model, scale, and consistency problems to make that tapestry into a cohesive system.

Projects you might work on
  • Instead of having search results where every shopper sees the same cars, personalizing the search results based on an individuals zip code, credit score, and payment history.

  • Using ESRGAN (Enhanced Super-Resolution Generative Adversarial Networks) to enhance photos of millions of cars.

  • Migrating front-end to use Next.js for SSR (Server-Side Rendering)

Working at Rocket Auto

Our culture is based on 20 philosophies that we call “ISMs.”

Each one shares how we can succeed and what we value. Our ISMs unite us around a culture of excellence.

This is how we leave our mark. This is how we create an impact. This is how we change the industry.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion is something we’ve always taken very seriously because in order to build the best solutions for the future, we need to include diverse opinions and people every step of the way.

Best defined by our ISMs, our culture reminds us to do the right thing and stay obsessed with finding a better way, no matter what.

This means we’re open to change. We’re ready and willing to listen. We recognize areas of opportunity, and we’re ready to do whatever it takes to be better. We’ve always been aware of diversity and the positive impact it makes on our businesses, but we also know that there’s more to do. We must keep moving forward.

We’re committed to advocating for equality and justice and are taking measurable and demonstrable actions to build a more diverse workplace.

We have 13 team member-led groups called Team Member Resource Networks, commonly referred to as TMRNs. These communities are open to all team members and are devoted to fostering an inclusive environment for all.
