Connecting with our customers is at the heart of everything we do.


Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses. We connect 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. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.


Our Growth Marketing Team enables every aspect of the customer experience to focus on attracting and engaging customers and improving lifetime value at every stage of their journey.


As a Marketing Specialist, Growth Marketing, you will be part of a fun, diverse, and dynamic team focused on growing Groupon’s customer base and engaging customers with the most beneficial and profitable solutions to drive long term value. You will define the strategies, scope, customer segmentation, and business cases for engaging programs that use marketing funds to grow Groupon’s customer base and drive long term value. You will be responsible for executing these marketing campaigns and driving continual improvement across your programs, gleaning insights from data to optimize and refine programming in partnership with key stakeholders.


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 obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?
