Job Description

Cars.com is a leader in the automotive digital marketplace. Since 1997, we have built our Editorial content to preeminent status in the industry. While enjoying great stability, we continue to grow.

Our highly engaged workforce enjoys our dedication to work/life balance, wellness and career growth as well as a rich set of employee programs. We’re big enough to provide abundant resources and small enough for employees to make an immediate impact.

The Assistant Photo Editor will be primarily responsible for maintaining the post-production workflow of original, internally-produced photo shoots. Secondary responsibilities include handling production overflow, which includes photographing cars for reviews and other automotive photojournalism projects, as well as maintaining our image database with the most current and accurate images available. The ideal candidate should have strong organizational skills and the ability to self-manage workflows and anticipate team needs. These qualities are equally important as photographic experience.
