About Carvana

At Carvana, we sell cars and our promise is simple: we won't sell a car to a customer that we wouldn't sell to our own Mom. Period. To make sure our cars are in first-rate condition, we've built multiple vehicle Reconditioning Centers around the country, where we use our Carvana Certified 150-point inspection process, to identify items that need to be replaced or repaired to ensure every vehicle meets our rigorous mechanical and cosmetic standards. We then take high-resolution 360° photographs of our vehicles' interior and exterior and make them available to our customers to view and utilize our seamless, online car buying experience that can be completed from their desktop or mobile device without ever leaving their home.

We are actively looking for passionate and talented individuals, just like you who are interested in a better job opportunity and can help us deliver on that promise, for fill positions in the Parts Department at our Reconditioning/Inspection Center in the Indy/Greenfield, Indiana area.
