Full Time

We’re seeking an executive-level candidate to be the Sr. Director for Digital Retailing APIs for Dealertrack. This leader will own all aspects of the product and will directly drive the priorities of a large team of product managers with dotted line responsibility for over 50+ engineers. This is a highly visible position that will interact at all levels of the Dealertrack and Cox Automotive businesses. The ability to collaborate effectively with other senior leaders both inside and outside the company is a key requirement for this role, and experience in driving business initiatives and reviews with C*-level executives is a must.

To keep up with that rapidly growing demand and the business opportunity it represents, we need leaders who are adept at scaling their organizations, their services, and themselves. In addition to owning the product outcomes, a Sr. Director role requires depth engagement with customer requirements, product design and product roadmaps, engineering and architecture, and operations and management of the service. A successful candidate will have owned product management and engineering teams and have a strong track record of delivery in terms of both features and service “ilities” (availability, scalability, and performance), and will be adept at making informed and accurate tradeoffs among competing ends.

Digital Retailing is one of the fastest growing services in the Cox portfolio. Scaling both the organization and the service to keep pace with rapidly growing customer demand is critical, and demonstrated success in creating and managing high growth organizations and businesses is key. As the Dr. Director of Digital Retailing APIs, you will continue the process of building a world-class organization focused on innovating for the customer.

A successful candidate for this role will be a comprehensive leader – part builder, part operator, a passionate advocate for customer needs, and an unyielding driver for successful delivery of business results. This leader will build a strategy focused on growing scale and usage for existing customers at the same time that we are creating new features to delight an ever-expanding set of new customers. This includes building innovative, best in class user experiences that will delight customers, driving new functionality that enables automotive applications and businesses to move to the cloud, supporting the at-scale API management needs of both FinTechs and external partners, and delivering a robust 100% uptime experience to all customers.


  • Bachelors Degree in Computer Science or related field

  • 8+ years of success managing product teams, preferably with an internet or developer focus

  • 8+ years of success building and leading engineering teams with an emphasis on scaling them to meet the demands of a rapidly growing business

  • MBA strongly preferred
