Frontend Software Engineer

Engineering · Ho Chi Minh City, Da Kao Ward
Department Engineering
Employment Type Full-Time

Experts believe that the automotive industry is set to change more in the next 10 years than in the last 100. One key element to this is ecommerce. While many sectors have embraced it, due to the complexity of data and systems in the car buying process, joining up the dots to create a truly omnichannel experience - seamlessly connecting offline and online worlds - for car buyers has not been possible. Until now.

 

Leading automotive industry suppliers Autofutura and GForces have recently merged to create an ambitious new group. Together they provide the innovative tools, solutions and services to connect car manufacturer, finance provider, dealer and consumer to streamline the entire customer journey and ultimately sell more cars, improve customer retention and create substantial efficiencies for their customers. In short, the new entity is the interface between its customers and car buyers, enabling scalable online transactions across multiple territories and markets, in one of the most exciting and fast-changing industries in the world.
