Senior Software Engineer - Finance Engineering

| Chicago

 

The challenge of the Financial Engineering team is to ensure that the merchants who partner with Groupon are paid for the products and services they provide to our customers. The FED team produces millions of merchant payments per month totaling billions of dollars globally. We need to do this both promptly and accurately because our merchants are counting on us to be correct every time. We work with all lines of business on the Groupon platform to build flexible systems that will support Groupon’s evolving business models.

 

As a Software Engineer you will:

  • You will be a technical leader who will help drive the product and team culture which is focused on inclusivity, ownership, and collaboration.
  • Work with Product and Engineering management to understand requirements and design flexible solutions for our global systems.
  • Implement, test, deploy, and provide production support in weekly iterations.
  • Mentor and help grow the other engineers on the team.

 

An ideal candidate would have:

  • 8+ years of developing and supporting software
  • Deep knowledge of a dynamic or functional programming language.
  • Willingness to work in our tech stack. Our systems are mainly written in Ruby and Clojure with some Java and EmberJS.
  • Experience working with relational databases.
  • We specifically use MySQL and Postgres.
  • Experience working with web technologies.
  • A desire to do pair programming.
  • A commitment to writing well-tested code.
  • The ability to communicate with non-engineering teams throughout the enterprise as we frequently work with Product, Accounting, and Support teams.

 

What we value:

  • Thoughtful software engineers - we are building a financial infrastructure which is designed to operate for decades so we need people who can think about more than just the problem in front of them.
  • Improving our craft - we all want to be better and we want to help each other get there.
  • Teamwork - modern software is not a solitary pursuit. We code with each other, we review each other’s changes, we test each other’s code, and we support each other’s releases.

 

Growth paths for Engineers in this role:

  • You can stay on an Individual Contributor Track and become a key technical leader within Groupon taking on larger cross domain problems
  • You can use this role to transition into Engineering Management managing teams that solve Groupon's many challenges

 

Groupon is a global company with tremendous local impact and we are looking for people to help us. We encourage you to apply even if you don’t tick every one of the above boxes.

 

 

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.

An Insider's view of Groupon

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.

Alicia

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.
