Job Description / Skills Required
Parsing and analyzing vast amounts of data is a centrally important part of Groupon’s business: it helps us gain better insights into our customers’ needs as well as understand our own processes and identify ways in which we can improve. Our Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) is the heart of this system and we are looking for someone to join us as Senior Product Manager and help us shape the growth of this business-critical function.
Right Person for the Job
As Senior Manager – EDW Product Management, you will be managing a team that is responsible for meeting the data needs of various business lines. You will be a champion for the adoption and accuracy of existing products as well as developing new BI solutions.
Groupon is an ever-changing, evolving place to work and sometimes that can mean ambiguity. But you’re a problem solver at heart and someone who is creative in conceptualizing and defining innovative data opportunities. A natural leader who takes the initiative, your skills lie in communicating a clear vision, building consensus across multi-functional teams and cutting through the roadblocks to deliver every time. At Groupon we value divergence of thought, so we want someone who is prepared to push back and question the status quo when needed. Is this you?
If you’re interested in putting your stamp on how we manage our data streams, and if Groupon sounds like somewhere you’d be at home, then get in touch.
