Engineering @ Shift
At Shift, we empower engineers to solve high-impact problems that drive our business. Our platform serves both customers and our operational team, providing a plethora of engineering challenges.

Simple is anything but easy…

Buying and selling a car are complex transactions with many moving parts. We’re building a frictionless experience with asynchronous in-app communication, instant financing, and personalized features.
It’s a classic computer science problem: how can we create the optimal schedule for drivers AND customers given thousands of inputs? Our proprietary scheduling system is solving these problems at scale.
Because no two cars are the same, pricing is a huge algorithmic challenge that’s at the core of our business. We use machine learning to accurately price vehicles while accounting for fluctuations in demand, availability, and local-market conditions.

Our Stack

Challenging the status quo means we need every advantage we can get. This is our toolkit for building great software.

Meet the Team

Our mission to transform the experience of buying and selling cars is an ambitious one. It can only be achieved by a team of diverse problem solvers dedicated to understanding our varied customers.
