Relevance Engineer, Search and Recommendations

Beepi is the fastest growing marketplace to buy and sell cars 100% online. Gone are the days of haggling with the used car salesman on the lot. Instead Beepi makes the process simple, trustworthy and even fun! We combine a rigorous vehicle-certification process, an industry-leading pricing algorithm, and the world's best car-buying process to delight all our customers. Thanks to our great team, we’re changing the auto industry from the ground up.

You're part engineer, part data scientist, a dang-good developer with deep knowledge and interest in search algorithms, recommender systems and machine learning. There are plenty of opportunities out here in the Bay Area to ply your trade. But Beepi offers two things that are surprisingly difficult to find: a chance to make a difference and to work with a crack team of developers. You could wither away at a big name software firm, slaving over mind-numbing projects day-after-day, or you could join Beepi, and help build the most exciting and ambitious peer-to-peer marketplace to date.
