100 jobs cruise into Dublin as CarGurus sets up shop

9 Mar 2016

E-commerce company CarGurus is opening a new European HQ in Dublin with the promise of 100 jobs as the car seller moves outside of its US home.

Brought to Dublin through the ConnectIreland scheme, CarGurus’ new office will host technical development, sales and account services teams that will build CarGurus’ country-specific operations in Europe.

Last year the company set up a UK service, with this Dublin hub working as a base for that and beyond.

The company claims to have 19m unique visitors to its site every month, with proprietary search technology, data analysis and community reviews driving customers to its service which, in a nutshell, finds local dealers for customers to buy from.

“Dublin is full of amazing talent, and we are actively recruiting professionals in the areas of inside sales and account management,” said Kristen Kenny, CarGurus VP people and talent acquisition.

“We’re looking for smart, ambitious people who want to be a part of a thriving, entrepreneurial consumer technology company with a very bright future in Europe.”
