Senior Finance Manager - Marketing

| Chicago

 

Want to use your finance and analytical skills to help local businesses around the world thrive?

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 vibrant, 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. Are you ready to take more ownership of your career? If so, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

The Senior Finance Manager - Marketing is a member of the Global Finance Team. They will serve as a key Marketing Finance partner to the VP of Computational Marketing (SEM, Mobile, Display, Affiliates), and VPs of our primary North American business segments (Local, Goods, Travel, etc). Are you looking for a way to challenge yourself and build your analytical skills?

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 passionate about helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

You'll spend time on the following:
•    Full oversight of the Global Marketing P&L, including day to day operations, monthly/quarterly/yearly planning cycles, month close variance analysis, regional forecasting and budget allocation, etc.
•    Serving as the Finance expert for both Computational and Offline (TV, PR, Sponsorships) Marketing channels. Partnering with senior leadership across global Marketing, Operations and Finance teams to align on strategy and maximize marketing’s return on investment
•    Managing and leading our Chicago based marketing finance team – overseeing talent development, standardization of processes and overall task prioritization to ensure Marketing Finance is maximizing its benefit to the business
•    Performing deep analysis on broad customer behavioral shifts, like the migration toward mobile devices and away from web. Evaluating financial implications and providing senior leadership with specific and actionable guidance
•    Providing insights and financial support around customer lifetime value and lifecycle
•    Partnering with customer growth team to plan, forecast, and conduct gap analysis regarding customers

We're excited about you if you have:
•    Bachelor's degree in Business, Finance, Accounting or related field (MBA preferred)
•    8+ years of broad based Finance experience in a variety of senior roles, ideally in both large cap and high growth business
•    Strong leadership, communication and relationship building skills, with the ability to interpret and summarize complex data to help achieve strategic and operational goals
•    ‘Builder’ mentality – identifies problems quickly and is eager to build solutions from scratch, not just improve on others work
•    Results oriented and able to roll-up the sleeves in order to accomplish necessary tasks
•    Experience in managing and developing people
•    Superior intellect and the executive presence to become a true business partner – someone who is capable of contributing to broader business conversations beyond their functional expertise
•    Comfortable with a fast-paced, always-on, start-up environment
•    Strong business judgment and excellent project management skills

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.

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.
