Teams

Customer Journey

With 9 teams altogether we take care of all touching points a customer can have with consumer brands, being remote or onsite, be it pre- or post evaluation, be it pre- or post sell decision, be it if he sells, buys, neither or both.

Merchant Journey

Another eight teams, we overlook all touching points of merchants with AUTO1.com, from before self-signup until successful buying and selling cars on the platform, including fulfillment, claims, customer care, and retention.

The Core

Consisting of four teams, we enable the journeys to concentrate their efforts on business concerns over infrastructural investments, without defining mutual exclusivity on this division. Furthermore, we own critical financial software, identity providers, HR software and infrastructure for all services, in an isolated and secure manner.

Data Science and Analytics

We build data applications and transform important business questions into interesting data problems. Our Data Science team implements and compares different models, such as random forests, deep learning, and good old regressions, and deploys them with our product teams. Meanwhile, Data Analytics builds inventory forecast models and assesses seasonality and risk, to inform our executives and operations’ tactical and strategic decisions.

Design

We design and build successful products from simple ideas using the latest design trends. Developing a world-class user experience to the level of customer satisfaction is not a single person or team’s responsibility, instead, it’s a company’s vision!

Dev Ops

We have grown from a simple LAMP stack to a heterogeneous (some say chaotic) microservice platform running on cloud services in about a year. And there is so much more to do with infrastructure as code.

Corporate Tech

From a printer through information security to solving complex network routing issues, we create and maintain the infrastructure that supports our daily operations across Europe.

Business Intelligence

With three teams, we are responsible for providing data infrastructure, reporting and analytics to all departments and countries. We comprise strategies and technologies used by enterprises for the data analysis of business information. Our technologies, like our data lake, provide historical, current and predictive views of business operations.

Mobile

Our four teams are dealing with the newest mobile devices every day. With currently seven task oriented applications, for Android and iOS platforms, we ensure that users have a pleasant and smooth experience while using them.

“I joined AUTO1 two years ago as iOS Developer and I must say I’m really lucky. The team is simply amazing, I’m facing new challenges every day and so far I’ve never got bored with my tasks. I love the attitude of the team, the focus on quality and perfection in tiny details – for me that’s matters a lot.

“I joined the product team at AUTO1 in March 2018 and feel that working here has a big impact on my personal and professional development. Here at the product team, people get the opportunity to develop, make a difference and leave their impact and I’m grateful for this opportunity that Auto1 has given me. I feel that my opinion mattered from day one and that I’m trusted with multiple challenges and responsibilities and encouraged to learn more and more and develop new skills – there are no limitations. There is a flat hierarchy that allows open communication within all levels of the organization, together with a multicultural environment and great colleagues from all over the world. I feel that the management and HR are open to suggestions and opinions coming from the employees and try to keep us happy and satisfied – this all creates a very pleasant working atmosphere.”
