Software Engineer - Supply Intelligence

| Chicago

 

You became an engineer because you believed in technology’s ability to make a difference in the world. So why would you spend your days building things that don’t matter? At Groupon, we spend our days developing tools, platforms and experiences that help small businesses thrive in their local communities. We might look like an ordinary ecommerce app, but under the surface we’re using cutting edge technology to build products that regularly positively impact the lives of 48MM people and 100,000 merchants.

 

Of course, local merchants aren’t the only ones who will benefit from your work—you will too. Whether it's working on a top 30 mobile app, improving machine learned personalization models, launching container-based platform-as-a-service infrastructure, or optimizing the site through A/B testing, you’ll be building your portfolio of achievements and becoming the software developer you want to be.

 

If you have ambition and drive and want to own your own road map in a company that knows how to scale, we want to talk to you.

 

We're looking for great technology developers to hack on a variety of products aimed at making customers’ and small business’ lives easier and happier. We work in small, self-managing, collaborative and agile teams, and team with product designers to implement stuff quickly.

 

 

Key Responsibilities

  • Work directly with the product manager to build features that improve the effectiveness of our sales representatives

  • Be able to work mostly independently, actively seek feedback from users and product managers

  • Take ownership of an application’s features end-to-end.  Be able to drive feature design, automated tests, code refactoring, all the way through delivery.

  • Be strong advocate of best design practices

  • Participate in a highly-collaborative engineering team; we are passionate about sharing ideas to constantly improve our work culture and the products we build.

 

Requirements

  • BS or MS in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent experience of 4+ years in professional software development.

  • Experience with Java or Ruby is highly preferred

  • Experience with relational database systems such as Mysql and Postgres.

  • Willingness to learn new technologies, including Java, Clojure, Ember.js

  • Nice to have: experience working with Hadoop, Teradata.

  • Must be able to work in an open environment at our Chicago Office.

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.

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.

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.
