About AutoUncle

At AutoUncle we are a company with dual visions. Business Vision: Become the most trusted car valuation brand in Europe.

Most people know us for our search engine — used by millions — to promote transparency in the used car market in Europe. Over time we have also used that underlying technology to build products that give price and market insights in lots of other contexts.

We want to make sure our platform is available wherever people need us, whether that is on our consumer search engine, in the hands of automotive professionals, via external marketplaces, or on dealer and OEM websites.

Company Vision: Be The Most Human Company.

A place where people — each with individual and diverse abilities, ambitions, and emotions — come together to work, learn, and grow. A great company culture depends on many factors. Having a compelling product. Building a strong community. Operating with trust and fairness. But before you can reach any of those goals, you need to relentlessly focus on people.

We acknowledge and appreciate that everyone has feelings and opinions, and we bring them to work with us every day. Our emotions can work for us or against us, but if we suppress them, we often end up blocking our own growth instead.

Humans are not machines. Input does not always equal output. That’s why we focus on outcomes — the results of hard work and creative energy — and not the time spent creating them. We know that success is a marathon, and we trust our teammates to know how to best use their time to reach our shared goals.

About You

We are in search of a VP of Engineering with strong technical experience and passionate about tackling intricate projects head-on. This leadership role demands not only technical expertise but also a genuine enthusiasm for people management. If you thrive in both engineering challenges and fostering team growth, we want you on our team.

  • You bring foundational software development knowledge, with firsthand experience in the role
  • You have substantial experience as an engineering manager within a scale-up company (bonus if you have experience reporting to C-level executives)
  • You are agile in strategy, comfortable moving into action without a full plan and willing to take risks with the understanding that iterations will be made along the way.
  • You have an experienced hand in driving organizational change, in synergy with cross-functional executive teams
  • Lastly, you do not need to have an interest in vehicles to apply for this role :)
