Launched in 2010 by James Hind and Alexandra Margolis, Carwow is a car review aggregator that makes the process of choosing and buying your new car effortless. They have changed the way Britons choose to buy their cars, where they can get the car they want, the way they want and at an impressive price – making it as hassle-free as possible for the buyer.
This provides the customer a chance to work with only the best-rated dealers in Britain, who genuinely care about giving them a great experience and is what they pride themselves on – paving the way forward.
How they work is you choose the car you want, and they find the five best offers for you from both local and national dealers. You can then compare offers by price, location, dealer ratings and reviews. Giving you complete control of the process, you deal directly with the dealer that you pick with their best offer, making this process smooth and easy.
While it’s great that this works for customers, they also have umpteen benefits for dealers. The newest approach to buying cars via Carwow introduces them to potential customers, which in return helps them increase their sales, reduce costs and improve their stock turnover. Thus, creating an enhanced experience for both – the user and the dealer.
Wondering what makes Carwow a great place to work for? Their employees let us in on a little secret. It is the freedom they’re provided with – ‘’Freedom to bring your character and personality to the office; to manage your work and working relationships.’’ They love that they have the freedom to challenge, drive ideas and make a difference. One thing they’re proud of is the multicultural environment, which means they put in a great amount of thought into the recruitment process to make sure the office is brimming with diversity.
In a quest to make every employee feel at home, they usually organise drinks for every new joiner on a Friday evening so they can break the ice and blend in with the rest of the crew. The team also hosts regular socials – from breakfast meetings and Friday drinks to sporting events, and sometimes, even trips abroad! A friendly and open working environment allows people to collaborate freely on projects, making the best of their connections.
In a nutshell, Carwow prides itself as a company that goes the extra mile to make sure their employees feel and know they’re as important as any business metric or financial projection. Their team is a ‘’melting pot of unique characters’’ and the collaboration between their teams is unparalleled.
If you fancy working in one of Britain’s best work places, look no further. Carwow is constantly on the lookout for new talent who are confident yet humble, push boundaries, keen to learn and evolve constantly, and are up to join the party called Carwow! You can find their vacancies here and here.
