Do you have a passion for people and innovation? Our Talent Acquisition teams build Groupon's greatest asset: our employees.

 

Are you the kind of recruiter who is passionate about developing relationships, learning more about state-of-the-art tech, and helping others find the right fit? Do you enjoy working on a collaborative team with fewer silos and greater ownership? How about taking your ideas from concept to reality quickly? Then we want to talk.

 

Groupon is a leader in ecommerce marketplaces, connecting consumers with merchants anywhere anytime. We are building the future of local business and together impact the lives of 49MM+ people and merchants who use our tools every single day. With thousands of employees across 15 countries, we operate on a global scale but still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking, and celebrates successes. If you want to take more ownership of your career, you're ready to be part of Groupon.

 

As a member of our Talent Acquisition team, you will play a deeply consultative role with business leaders and ensure that our people are matched to roles and teams which allow them to be great. We love curious and creative people who discover new approaches to finding and engaging talent.

 

We are looking for a Senior Technical Recruiter to partner with hiring leaders locally and beyond.

You will develop recruiting strategies, source candidates, and maintain an actionable pipeline of engineering talent, to build teams that sit at the intersection of your local community and mobile, fueling a commerce platform that continues to evolve. Ultimately, you'll contribute to our overall business growth by recruiting some of the best tech talent in the world.

 

Responsibilities:

  • You will own the end-to-end recruitment lifecycle - sourcing, screening, interviewing, negotiating with, and hiring mid-career to executive technical talent

  • Influence Groupons technology roadmap through assessment of cutting-edge solutions for the team.

  • You will partner with hiring teams to ensure that hires match by more than the immediate needs of the particular team or candidate

  • You should be curious and willing to try new things in order to champion an amazing candidate experience

  • Encourage an equally amazing process within hiring teams, including thorough strategy meetings, interview debriefs, and process re-calibration when necessary

  • Build relationships and work with cross-functional teams, including business leaders, HR, Legal, Compensation, etc.

  • Articulate our business mission and core values in ways that resonate with each particular contact, presenting an objective view of life at Groupon

  • Participate in process-improvement initiatives within Groupon's Global Recruiting function

 

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's Degree required

  • 7+ years technical recruiting experience in a rapidly changing environment

  • Detailed track record of delivery and partnership with multiple hiring managers concurrently

  • Ability to speak comfortably to basic tech stack architecture, front-end, and back-end engineering profiles as well as testing roles

  • Experience sourcing candidates through social media beyond LinkedIn; AIRS certification and/or advanced web recruiting skills (complex search string savvy) preferred

  • Experience negotiating offers and closing candidates successfully

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.

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.

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.
