The B2B domain plays a leading role in the AUTO1 Group business success. The teams in this area own all the related topics of the AUTO1.com Platform, which include, among others: Car Auctions, Search Engines, Merchant Usability, Recommendation Systems and a rather long list of tools to support our sales teams. We process millions of requests daily to support both funnel - buying and selling cars. As for the tech stack that enables all this, we're using the latest available - JDK14, Kinesis streams, AWS SQS, AWS Lambda, ECS, Terraform (Infrastructure as Code) and a lot more.
The area of C2B - C ensures the inflow of cars thanks to our customer facing websites and purchasing branches across europe. The group that owns this area handles milions of requests via our frontend and CRM infrastructures, supporting the targeting and conversion optimisations of our Marketing dept. Furthermore it fully supports our Purchasing dept. developing the core tools for evaluating and pricing thousands of cars daily, making it the gatekeeper of car data.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Our goal is to enable data-driven decision making by providing the necessary data basis that is accurate, complete, consistent, timely, and valid. We achieve this by designing, building, running and maintaining a data warehouse that integrates data from all the various sources across the company. With this single point of truth, we lay the foundation for reporting, analytics and all other types of data-related requests from all our departments and business units.
Tech - Finance
Our goal in the Finance field is to support the rapid growth of the AUTO1 business, throughout every step of the car lifecycle within AUTO1, from evaluation and purchase to sale and post-sale, ensuring that each step complies with the financial requirements. Whether it is reporting, taxation issues, merchants' claims, refunds, or accounting intricacies, we design and build solutions to reflect mission-critical financial flows.
Tech - Retail
Retail tech is focused on changing the way people buy and sell cars by providing the customers with a seamless car-buying experience that is powered by technology. All aspects of the consumer facing Autohero platform, including our virtual showroom experience and online purchase, bring challenges of handling high-load and performance. Behind the scenes, we have inventory sourcing, advertisement management and tools for operationally fulfilling the order and automation of the business processes.
Tech - Car Journey
The Car Journey tech teams have a dual responsibility: on one hand supporting the vital logistic processes of AUTO1's multiple business units, and on the other building software solutions for our AUTOHERO refurbishment teams. This vast responsibility has customer happiness center stage - the logistics solutions we build allow an efficient, transparent and timely transportation and handover process, while our refurbishment ones enable our AUTOHERO customers to receive their cars quickly and in top quality.
Tech - Remarketing
The Remarketing group focuses on delivering the best tools to digitalise trade-ins, support dealers' business liquidity, enabling cross border transactions. To achieve this, teams are delivering AUTO1 Dashboards to support stock management selling process, EVA app (IOS/Android/Web) to support stock evaluation and APIs that allow other dealers/DMS to integrate.
Quality Assurance (QA)
The Quality Assurance team helps the other teams ensure that they are building the right product by applying various processes across the organization, in order to provide confidence that an appropriate level of quality is achieved. Our QA engineers are part of cross functional teams, providing manual and automated testing, including API and UI automation testing.
