Carvana is hiring a

Real Estate Associate

Phoenix, United States


We sell cars but we’re not car salesmen. We saw a huge problem with how sucky it can be to buy a car and our mission is to unsuck car buying, every step of the way. We don’t see ourselves as an innovation company. But in the interest of making car buying better, we create technologies that have never been created.

We have big hearts and big dreams. Forbes recently named us in the top 5 most promising companies in America, but we want to be number one. 

We’re not a big, bloated company with layers of people, all afraid to say ‘yes’.  You have a voice in the direction we’re headed and we like to think that’s pretty powerful. For more information on Carvana, take a look at our company introduction video.
