After moving to Chicago from the West Coast, Kayne Grau took over as Chief Technology Officer at Cars.com and looked to raise the level of technology credibility at the company that started featuring automobile listings and media in 1997. Kayne did this by updating its overall technology approach and stack – while becoming more progressive in the process. We covered Cars.com’s move to agile development previously.

I had the opportunity to talk with Kayne Grau in Chicago a few weeks ago as he shared some insights on how to run a technology organization, which included urging others to “get out of the office” as a way to learn from others. He also shared some startup advice, as well as his take on the Chicago tech ecoystem. Of course, we could not resist finding out if Kayne is a automobile enthusiast himself. To find out, watch the interview with Cars.com CTO Kayne Grau.
