Ruby on Rails Engineer - Platform Infrastructure

| Chicago

 

As a Groupon engineering team, we champion entrepreneurship, authenticity, collaboration, and quality. We have a huge impact on our product with great visibility in the organization. Join an industry leader with over 50% of transactions completed on a mobile device in 2015. We are advancing the use of beacon technology in our latest technologies and we continue to grow our business with nearly $6B in gross annual billings. 

 

On the Release and Production Tools team, we build configuration management solutions that drive the very core of our global platform. We strive to make the building, testing and deploying of services and applications efficient and reliable for the entire engineering organization. Because our team sits at the crossroads of so many different services, we enjoy exposure to a vast number of languages and tools: Java, Node, Ruby, Golang, and more. Polyglot is an understatement. We plan to push the engineering organization forward in three ways:

 

  • Revolutionizing the tools and infrastructure used for Service configuration and management

  • Building continuous delivery pipelines, leveraging Jenkins, Docker, and container orchestration to drive a migration towards public cloud

  • Expanding the reach of our artifact management solutions for Docker images, NPM packages, Java jars and wars, Ruby gems, and more

 

In the role of Senior Engineer, you would be tasked with helping to drive forward our vision of a modern global engineering platform. Specifically, you would join the Service Portal team and coordinate with other members of the platform team to design, build, test and deliver tools, frameworks and infrastructure that supports our Service Management. You would raise the Service Portal team up from within by providing detailed feedback on pull requests, helping mentor junior engineers on the team, and increasing product velocity in an agile devops environment. You would work with developers, test engineers, system administrators, and operations to understand their workflows, how to improve and automate them, and how to monitor and alert on failures of the systems that support them. You would be part of a team that offers 24/7 support for the core pieces of Groupon’s infrastructure.

 

Required skills:

 

  • Experience designing, building, testing, delivering and supporting web services or applications

  • At least 5 years experience building and maintaining web applications in Ruby on Rails

  • Strong DevOps skills

  • A passion for Test Driven Development

  • A proven history of raising the quality bar on a code base through detailed PR reviews

  • A desire to share what you know, and a will to provide guidance to less-experienced developers

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.

Insider's spotlight

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Milan

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

Program Manager, Employee & Community Engagement

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
