Job Description

Buying cars from auction and doing car challenges
Car reviews and sales videos of inventory
General business vlogs and behind the scenes

We are rather laid back and have a good sense of humour. We don't take ourselves too seriously in the videos and enjoy joking around.  We hope to find someone that fits into our culture well.
