We know that applying for a new job at any company requires trust. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply to Koch. Here are a few resources that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Koch.
Who Are We?
We're Koch, an Auto Group from Canada! We made waves as the first OEM dealer to offer Canadians an automotive e-commerce experience. We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and accurate. Small groups mean less bureaucracy, less management, and more getting things done.
Do you check your GitHub more than your Twitter? Do you know the difference between scrum, sprint, agile, and kanban? If the answer is yes, then please read on.
