What Employees Say
I worked at Auto Trader UK full-time for more than a year
From a developer's point of view, this has to be one of the best web companies to work for in the North of England, and probably nationally. They have excellent, cutting edge tech (early adopters of... cloud and containerisation), truly Agile practices, and pretty boundless ambition. The business is strong too, but one of the real cultural strengths is that they are very reflective, very aware of their weaknesses and vulnerabilities and move fast to remove them. The culture is all-pervasive and mostly very positive. The atmosphere is overwhelmingly friendly, and from the top down it is a company run by, and for, real people. I really enjoyed my time here.
The location (central Manchester) wasn't right for me, but of course that will not be a problem for everyone. The car industry is facing some structural headwinds which may hit them in the future but... so far they seem immune. At the moment they are riding high, but there are some potentially very serious competitors out there.

Advice to Management
The field technicians get travel claims, but no form of official allowance. In public sector or in other tech firms, field technicians tend to get an allowance of £1000 a year on top of their... claims. This goes towards the wear, tear and depreciation of thier own vehicle.
