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.

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.
