About the team and position

Do you have a natural curiosity to build new technologies? Are you the type of person who taught themselves a new JavaScript library just for fun? If so, join a dynamic team of engineers aimed at bringing the latest in web application development to a whole new way to buy a car. We are a fast-growing team that is focused on performance, scalability, and reliability to provide the best experience to our customers, both internal and external.

Carvana is deepening its investment into business platforms that accelerate innovation for product and engineering teams that build internal applications. Our mission is to build a first in class platform with ready-to-use building blocks that provide scale, consistency, and engineering excellence to application development teams.

This particular position is for our Work Item platform team. We developed our own Work Item management suite for workflows, tasks, state, metrics, and work fulfillment. The platform is built using dotnet core with a reactive architecture. Whether work is automated, assisted using AI, outsourced, or completed by Carvana employees, we provide a platform for knowing, prioritizing, and distributing work for completion. We would love to have you join us in deepening partnerships, building core platform features, and building first class tools for engineers to implement the system.

What you’ll be doing

  • Design, develop, maintain, and deploy complex back end solutions using C# / dotNetCore (RESTful server-side via Web API) stacks and cloud services (Azure).
  • Work with cloud systems, pipelines, and resources.
  • Perform data storage and persistence containers querying using SQL, NoSQL, and caching technologies.
  • Develop loosely coupled solutions that are scalable, testable, modularized, and reusable.
  • Work in a team environment using Agile project approaches (Kanban, Scrum).
  • Participate in all development activities, such as creating user stories, discovery, design, planning, and retrospectives.
  • Understand the business requirements and apply solutions that align with the long-term strategies and scalable architecture goals.
  • Learn and try new technologies, approaches, and participate in bringing software engineering in Carvana to the next level.

What you should know

  • At least 5 years of software development, with consistently advancing skills and responsibilities.
  • Expertise with at least one object-oriented language (C# preferred).
  • Experience with web application development.
  • Deep understanding of dotNetCore and C#.
  • Proven track record and passion for learning new programming languages.
  • Worked with data storages (SQL or NoSQL).
  • Writing unit tests.
  • Debugging and troubleshooting web services, API, and libraries.
  • Good communication and collaboration skills - Carvana developers work very closely with strong supporting teams and require great interpersonal skills including a positive attitude and sense of humor.

It would be great if you also had

  • Experience in contemporary JavaScript / TypeScript (ES2015+), React Hooks.
  • Used any cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP, RedHat, etc.).
  • Experience in container-oriented architecture using Docker and/or Kubernetes.
  • Used any message queue, such as Kafka or RabbitMQ.
  • Write GraphQL interfaced services.
  • Worked with NoSQL databases.

What does our growth have to do with you?

Only everything. Are you not sure you meet 100% of the qualifications? You should still give it a shot! Research shows that men will apply to a job when only meeting 60% of the requirements, whereas women and members of other systematically marginalized groups typically only apply when they meet every single requirement. At Carvana, we're builders. We build tools, business, and our people. We value diversity in backgrounds and thought, so take a shot and apply! Please highlight some of your accomplishments in your resume and cover letter so we can talk about how you can grow with us.
