About Dealer Inspire
Dealer Inspire is an automotive website platform provider located in Naperville, Illinois. We pride ourselves in having a fun, unconventional working environment and a great culture. While our team works extremely hard, we try to keep it a fun and creative work environment. At Dealer Inspire, we like to look at current problems and 'rethink' about solutions. We're flexible - we don't write requirements in stone, and things can change regularly. This means rethinking how the solutions work best. Do you want to come 'rethink' with us?
Dealer Inspire is looking for experienced developers to join our team. We're always innovating - we're looking for people that can own projects and see them through to delivery - while we want rock stars, we're not interested in prima donnas. Personal responsibility with respect to quality, attention to detail, and contribution of ideas is highly needed to succeed.
We are building a new team and a new product at Dealer Inspire! Management of automotive inventory is a core piece of functionality for our customer’s websites and the various products that we develop, and because we are just getting started you can have a big impact on the technologies that we use. You will be helping us architect and develop a large and highly complex system for processing inventory feeds as well as developing a brand new product to allow our customers the ability to configure and manage every aspect of their inventory.
