Role Description

Who We Are

DealerScience makes desking deals, creating website specials, and responding to customer inquiries fast, easy, and accurate.

DealerScience automated high impact, high effort tasks and, in less than one year, our founder’s dealership saw double their sales without adding a single staff member to their sales force.

Now we are offering this solution to car dealerships across the US. We are disrupting the dealership world one dealer at a time by designing and offering tools that help bridge the gap between the way consumers buy cars online and how dealerships operate. Come join the DealerSquad! We’re changing this space.

About TrueCar

Buying and owning a car is one of the most important moments in a person’s life. An automobile provides the freedom to pursue life’s dreams and ambitions. With our vast dealer network TrueCar quickly became known for creating a marketplace where consumers purchase vehicles with transparent up-front pricing. TrueCar’s next vision is to revolutionize the car shopping and buying experience within vertical marketplaces. Think of experiences such as Airbnb, Zillow, Thumbtack or Amazon. These kinds of experiences have changed how people take vacations, buy homes, find home service professionals and buy goods online. These kinds of innovations haven’t been brought to the automotive industry, which is a massive consumer market, and there is no company better positioned to innovate and deliver on this vision than TrueCar. That these kinds of innovations haven’t been brought to the automotive industry represents an opportunity on which TrueCar is uniquely positioned to capitalize.

Company Culture

We believe you can get a long way with small teams focused on well-defined goals. We value open communication and self-starters. If people are taking responsibility and talking, anything can be improved and novel approaches can be discovered.
