An Insider's view of KAR

What's something quirky about your company?

Our culture is more like a family than colleagues. One of my favorite aspects about this office is our Parents-designated Slack channel—an online team collaboration site. It is a great reminder we aren’t just employees, but we can be moms and dads at work, shamelessly sharing fun stories about our personal lives.

Senior Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

KAR’s DevOps teams are always solving unique problems, but tackling complexity is the real challenge. We’ve found that meaningful solutions come when we don’t focus on fighting fires reactively and instead work collaboratively on building proactive frameworks and implementing forward-thinking processes.

Jr. DevOps Manager

What does your typical day look like?

We start the day with a 15-minute huddle to talk about progress from the day before, the day’s plan and barriers to success that need to be addressed. This gives us a clear understanding of our priorities for the day. Our teams are dynamic, so every member of our project team works together each day to discuss design approaches and share ideas.
