Since 1995, Cars.com Santa Monica has had a rich history of innovation geared towards delivering value to online shoppers and the automotive industry.
We began as NewCars.com, a 3rd party automotive site that had developed cutting edge technology for search engine marketing. Eventually, NewCars.com began offering this service to other companies in the automotive space through a separate division, CPC Logic.
In 2005, NewCars.com was acquired by Cars.com. Partnering with more than 200 leading metro newspapers, television stations and their web sites, Cars.com is the premier destination for online new and used car shoppers.
Cars.com is a division of Classified Ventures, LLC. Based in Chicago, Classified Ventures is owned by five leading media partners - Belo Corp., Gannett Company, The McClatchy Company, Tribune Company and The Washington Post Company.
Our Santa Monica team takes great pride in volunteering not only in Santa Monica but the greater Los Angeles area as well. Giving back reminds each of us that if we can think beyond our own personal needs, we can make the world a better place.
Most recently, staff members raised money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation by participating in a "Walk for Wishes" fundraiser on the Fox Studios back lot.
Other volunteer activities include serving meals at a homeless center during Thanksgiving week, assembling food kits at the L.A. Food Bank, donating backpacks filled with school supplies to Santa Monica schools and helping out at a Senior support house.
Visit our Community Outreach page to read about more activities we have participated in, all geared to giving back to our community.
Cars.com knows that a positive work environment means getting to know each other as people, not just as programmers or QA or Management. In fact, getting the right work/life balance is an essential goal here at Cars.com Santa Monica.
So during the year, we have a full calendar of events -- from after work mixers to the Halloween and holiday parties to the annual summer beach event.
These events are fun -- and remind us that our co-workers have interests and values that are equally important.
We're 7 blocks from Santa Monica Pier and the Pacific Ocean and 4 blocks from Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade with a wide assortment of shops and restaurants to enjoy.
Assembling kits at the LA Food Bank.
