Procurement Analyst at Groupon
Want to use your analytical skills to help optimize our procurement efforts globally?
Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a dynamic, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.
Groupon Procurement builds partnerships between stakeholders and strategic vendors across all company spend. We take a multi-disciplinary approach to procurement, combining spend category expertise, industry knowledge, and financial acumen. We have a front row seat to identify upcoming opportunities and challenges for Groupon. We develop our team's skills and capabilities to optimize for these market changes, in consultation with company senior leaders.
We are searching for a tenacious, analytical, and strategic Procurement Analyst to join our team. You will be responsible for supporting indirect sourcing efforts across all departments as well as leading procurement processes in our P2P system, ticketing solution, and P-card system. This role will assist the Senior Manager of Procurement Operations in supporting our Category Manager colleagues by routing and reviewing procurement contracts, performing financial analysis, assisting with partner and supplier management, and continuously improving upon processes and systems.
We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of passionate about helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?
