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 product development teams. 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 have two products looking for a great API developer - are you a great fit for one of these?
FUEL is an application that creates engaging dynamic text ads for every vehicle in our customer’s inventory. By using unique vehicle attributes from inventory feeds, ads are automatically generated with specific vehicle data and pushed out to various advertising platforms. Part of the platform analyzes ad spends and automatically adjust budgets across Google and Bing Ads to optimize budget allocation. Other parts of FUEL manage leads from Facebook and aggregate data across multiple sources for in-depth reporting. FUEL is migrating away from a MVC Kohana app to a Laravel-based API and React front-end; from legacy to brand-new code, this project has it all.
Conversations is a unified communication platform that supports web-based chat, text messaging, Facebook messenger and video. It integrates with a dealership's sales staff and inventory, allowing more involved and richer communication. From scheduling a service appointment to getting detailed information about specific vehicles, Conversations encompasses the entire process with efficient and easy-to-use tools for those on-the-go. Balancing API requests between PHP and NodeJS, using WebSockets and machine learning, all coupled with a React front-end, there are tons of new challenges to solve on this team.
