Grow As a Developer by Building Things That Matter

You became an engineer because you believed in technology’s ability to make a difference in the world. So why would you spend your days building things that don’t matter? At Groupon, we spend our days developing tools, platforms and experiences that help small businesses thrive in their local communities.

Whether it's working on a top 30 mobile app, improving machine learned personalization models, launching container-based platform-as-a-service infrastructure, or optimizing the site through performance testing, you’ll be building your portfolio of achievements and becoming the software developer you want to be.

If you have ambition and drive and want to own your own road map in a company that knows how to scale, we want to talk to you.
