At vAuto, a Cox Automotive Brand we are always on the lookout for the next Software Engineer to join our team in Austin, TX . Each team has its own culture, technology challenges, and problems to solve. Here are summaries of some of our teams. There are more teams with different focuses, products, and challenges than mentioned below.
Team App Data The App Data team maintains and improves the quality of the data in our portfolio; the system it supports receives dirty vehicle data from many disparate sources, and cleans that data to a common standard. Along with maintaining data processes, the team is responsible for gathering metrics around data quality to determine where to best spend our efforts. The App Data team owns the systems and algorithms that compute a unique market vehicle record for each advertised vehicle, and derives the set of competing vehicles in the market for any given vehicle. The team owns the valuation system which takes vehicle data and yields a book value for that vehicle for any of our supported automotive pricing guides.
Team Infrastructure The Infrastructure team bridges the gaps between Product Development and Operations teams by bringing full application domain knowledge and system capacity awareness to feature development reviews. Using Opsview and Dynatrace we identify problem areas in the code and work with other teams to educate and resolve the opportunities. Using Opsview and Dynatrace we identify efficiency and stability problems is the applications and work to resolve them.
