Who We Are

Since our founding in 2013, all of us at Driven Data have been committed to providing pioneering, data-enabled solutions to our clients and partners in the retail automotive industry. Our ability to make the monumental amount of data a dealership generates easy to access, understand, and act on is grounded in our team’s unique experience in both the data science and dealership worlds.

What We Do

We improve car dealership health and vitality by making it possible for them to use first-party data to inform and improve critical aspects of their business. We do this through marketing-centric solutions focused on four important areas:

Visibility_Icon_320x280

Visibility
We bring over 100 (and growing) integrations together in an intentionally engineered experience that provides you with transparency across—and into—all aspects of your business. That broad and deep view can inform—and transform—your strategy, tactics, and results in profound ways.

Usability_Icon_320x280

Usability
Until now, accessing—never mind analyzing and using—the tens of millions of data points an average dealership creates every week has been virtually impossible. We’ve built a platform that puts usability first. Driven Data is easy to implement, effortless to navigate, and efficient to use, day in and day out.

Actionability_Icon_320x250

Actionability
Data—especially high quality, high quantity data—can be overwhelming. From insights to recommendations to instant, automated, and customized implementation, we make it possible to confidently act on everything your data is telling you about your business.

Adaptability_Icon_320x240

Adaptability
Driven Data is built to ensure that the needs and opportunities unique to YOUR business are what drives the experience of working OUR business, and not the other way around.

Who We Work For

From regionally focused, multi-generation dealerships to large, constantly expanding groups, all the way to the industry’s OEMs, our scale, adaptability, and breadth of integrations mean our solutions can fit the needs of dealers and enterprises of all sizes.

Careers

To our team members, Driven Data is more than just a company, it’s a collection of over-caffeinated automotive retail enthusiasts having way more fun than we probably should. We passionately believe that we are changing the car business for the better by helping dealership owners and managers uncover opportunities for operational improvement. If you want to be a part of the team pioneering the marriage of first-party dealership data with a bleeding-edge marketing tech stack for car dealers, we would love to talk with you.
