Groupon's mission is to connect local commerce, increasing consumer buying power while driving more business to local merchants through price and discovery. We're redefining how traditional small businesses attract, retain, and interact with customers by providing merchants with a suite of products and services, including customizable deal campaigns, credit card payment processing capabilities, and point-of-sale solutions that help businesses grow and operate more effectively.

Senior Software Development Engineer - Performance Test at Groupon

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. We might look like an ordinary ecommerce app, but under the surface we’re using cutting edge technology to build products that regularly positively impact the lives of 48MM people and merchants.

Of course, local merchants aren’t the only ones who will benefit from your work—you will too. 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.
