JOB DESCRIPTION:

We’re looking for an experienced engineering leader with a passion for tackling big problems. We’re experienced veterans who know how to get things done, and are also charged with future-proofing our architecture and implementations to scale for years to come. The ideal candidate for this position is well-versed with our back end tech (C#, Azure, ASP.Net, WCF, SQL Server) and has solid web skills (JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS, React).

We iterate quickly and you will see your work have an immediate, scaled impact every day in a well-funded and rapidly growing company. Our Team Leads are hands-on, getting down and dirty with code on a daily basis.

We're doing exciting things at Carvana! Pushing toward microservices architecture, experimenting with new technologies like Azure Service Fabric and being part of an open-minded team when it comes to learning newer technologies and tools

RESPONSIBILITIES:

The Carvana Team Lead will work closely with our Merchandising Product Track Lead partner to define the vision, direction, and objectives for all projects in our Merchandising track using the above technologies AND ElasticSearch (Kabana or ELK stack).

You will participate, end to end, in the product life cycle: requirements gathering, solution design, planning, development, testing, and implementation.  You energetically and deftly react to rapidly evolving business needs and requirements, find solutions to unexpected technical challenges and seek out opportunities to contribute to the meteoric growth of  our business, enrich our culture and improve the quality of our tools, code and processes.

You are the ultimate “player-coach”.  You are very comfortable leading from the front on all matters technical and you boast the scar tissue to prove it from an impressive career of implementation success, personal growth and skills development.

You also understand that the talent on your team is the most important resource that you control.  You are constantly looking for ways to cultivate, direct, guide and nurture the members of your team to help them attain personal goals while providing sustainable and significant business value.

  • A comprehensive understanding of software craftsmanship ideals - clean code principles, unit testing fundamentals, design pattern selection and application, architectural pattern selection and application
  • Should be familiar with the DOM, DOM manipulation and the ins and outs of asynchronous web development including a strong JavaScript skill set
  • An understanding and experience in application security from the web service and web application perspective
  • A good understanding of design patterns and N-Tier architecture
  • A Bachelor’s Degree or higher in related field, or professional experience working with related technologies
  • Strong debugging and troubleshooting skills
  • Carvana developers work very closely with strong supporting teams and require great interpersonal skills including a positive attitude and sense of humor (read that last part twice, if necessary)
