Senior Web Developer – Cars.com, Santa Monica (1670) (Santa Monica, CA 90401 US)

March31

Cars.com is a premier leader in the automotive online marketing space.  We are looking for a senior level software engineer with a breadth of knowledge and experience.

Core Qualifications:

  • 5+ years development experience.
  • Generalist developer rather than specialist.
  • Proven system architecture experience.
  • 4 year degree a plus.
  • People, verbal and written skills required.
  • PHP, Python, Java or Ruby, but C++ or Smalltalk would be acceptable.
  • JavaScript, Flex, HTML, CSS.
  • Good knowledge of MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, or MSSQL.
  • Linux, Apache, some shell scripting.
  • Practical knowledge of OO and design patterns.
 

The Ideal Candidate Description:

You're a self-motivated, ferocious problem solver.   Don’t know a programming language that would be best for a situation?  You learn it. Not sure what the best DB structure might be for a given application?  You research options, make suggestions, and hash it out with the team.

You’re a team player.   This sounds like a cliché but we're a small team. We try to avoid politics here. There’s a team effort to move our projects forward quickly and get them done correctly. We work closely to get it all done: generate ideas, designs, and code -- and accept feedback in stride.

You're a generalist.   You're not a one trick pony who is an expert in only one thing.  You're a programming polyglot, fluent in several programming languages and paradigms.  You live on the bash command line but maybe you can also admin a Windows domain.  Maybe you've done time in QA, NetOps, or as a DBA.

You have recent frontend and backend web experience and good knowledge of SQL.

We mainly use PHP but you do not need to know it as long as you have significant experience with a real-world object-oriented language (Python, Ruby, Java, C++, Smalltalk, etc.) and are willing to learn.  You must have experience with both backend and frontend development (JavaScript, Flex, HTML/CSS). You grok SQL and have a good working knowledge of relational databases (MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, or MSSQL).

You dream in OO.  You're a skilled object oriented designer and have a strong command of common design patterns.  You've architected non-trivial portions of systems, preferably an entire system, and are familiar with a framework or two of some sort.

You like to work on Linux or BSD. The Dev team is all about Linux though we do have some Macs. The servers are Linux, the desktops are Linux. You do not need to be a guru, but the more Linux knowledge such as shell scripting and configurations you know the better.

Core Responsibilities:
  • Architect and develop technical solutions for our websites
  • Ensure code and design quality
  • Take the lead in teaching and guiding other developers in exploring new technology and approaches.

Find out what it means to work for a company that has the best of both worlds – an intimate, productive, innovative work environment coupled with the benefits of a large corporate company.  Our Santa Monica office is an independent online marketing and tech division of Cars.com, a leader in the online automotive space.  Centrally located in beautiful Santa Monica, we have a casual team-focused workplace and a competitive compensation and benefits package –

  • PPO Health and Dental Insurance plan
  • Matching 401K
  • Bonus plan
  • Competitive paid vacation and holiday schedule
  • Flexible spending plan
  • Free parking and more
