Senior Product Manager - API & Global Platform at Groupon
 Groupon’s API & Global Platform is the front door to one of the most popular mobile services in the world.  It services a multitude of clients including phones, tablets, browsers and is even integrated into a number of 3rd party systems around the world. In addition to the client-facing duties, the API also works with a diverse array of lower-tier systems collecting and connecting the data and services necessary to fulfill the requests of our clients. This privileged integration point exposes our team members to a wide variety of challenges from the deep technical implementations of the scalable core platform to the user-visible features and functionality available to our customers.

Our team’s responsibilities include driving technical platform integration to ensure a single global platform serving Groupon customers in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
