Groupon drives local commerce by connecting consumers and merchants – join the engineering team responsible for merchant success and help small local businesses succeed! You’ll be working in a tight knit group of engineers, product managers, and designers chartered with thinking outside the box to empower our merchants to connect with their local community and drive customers through their door.
As a front end software engineer on the merchant platform, you’ll be building web based experiences for managers and employees at local businesses. We’re past the world where software was written for “businesses” – we build software for people! The needs of our users are both demanding and complex – you’ll be building responsive experiences that treat them as unique individuals, operating within their own context, with their own wants and needs.
You’ll be using modern web technologies in Groupon’s SOA, partnering with back end and mobile teams to deliver compelling holistic experiences. The web experiences you build will be incredibly high quality and high performance – our business users can’t tolerate downtime or errors, as Groupon is critical in serving their individual customers. At the end of the day, you’ll be writing great code, and will be collaborating with product, engineering, and design leaders to ensure we’re not only solving problems in the right way, but that we’re solving the right problems.
The merchant engineering team is growing significantly, and there are numerous opportunities available – we’re going to change the face of local commerce, and if you’re up for the challenge, please get in touch!
Groupon provides a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live or lively events. At the same time, we are providing advertising options and tools that merchants can use to grow and manage their businesses. Culturally, we believe that great people make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward. Community matters to us on an internal, local and global scale—it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.
