– Why Work For Us?

About Us

Great companies start with an idea and an inspiration. Our idea was to make the car buying process better, faster and simpler. And our inspiration was technology. In 1997 that spark led Mark Bonfigli, Rick Gibbs, Mike Lane, Jamie LaScolea and Ryan Dunn to found and begin redefining the expectations of the auto industry.

By bringing a full suite of digital marketing tools to OEMs and dealers, coupled with direct consultation to make those tools work harder for customers, we helped to change the digital face of the industry.

But we didn’t just focus on the world outside – we looked inward, to see how we could create a work environment that was unlike any other – where the desire to be creative, innovative, healthy, expressive and fun were nurtured and appreciated at a whole new level.

It was the collective fostering of these missions that made what it is today: an 850-person strong company with bi-coastal offices serving 40 percent of the auto industry’s marketing needs; all made possible through a culture rich in openness, wellness, development, community engagement, and individuality.



Our Driving Principles

We understand, question, and then crush conventions boldly and intelligently.

We believe partnership is a process as well as a product.

Agile and Adaptable

Core Values

Our company mission is to be the most sought-after automotive web solutions provider in the world. We pursue this mission with the highest degree of integrity and focus on creating superior products, satisfied clients and empowered employees – all with minimal impact on the environment.

1. Create Raving Fans

We will create raving fans by blowing away the expectations of our cherished clients and trusted partners.

Walk, talk and be the positive energy that builds our future.

This is our LIFE. We will take advantage of our surroundings, support one another, and grow healthier and more productive together.

6. Go Big or Go Home

We will embrace life, work hard and enjoy the ride; having a great time is mandatory.

7. Break Convention

We are risk takers, not followers. We will question what doesn’t feel right and lead boldly by doing what is right.

8. Everyone is Approachable

From newbies to VPs and the CEO, we can speak freely and approach one another without reservation.

Employees are recognized and rewarded for a job well done, and the company regularly shows its appreciation through holiday parties, summer BBQs and other events. Our mission is to find talented and motivated folks, support them throughout their career here, surround them with other talented and fun co-workers, and then celebrate them for doing a great job.
