Do You Want to Grow As a Developer and Build Things That Matter?
 

Are you searching for an engineering team that operates at a global scale very few companies reach? Are you looking to code and build features in one of the top-rated e-commerce mobile apps in the world? If you are a very smart engineer who cares about being great at their craft, executes at a high level, and loves to work as part of a team, and have fun doing it, you should join us.
 

Groupon's Mobile Engineering Team is making a clear impact on our bottom line. And with the growth of our mobile marketplace, we are getting more internal and external exposure every single day. Here, you will focus on the iOS app, which is at the heart of our story. It connects millions of consumers with local merchants and services that they love all over the world. Groupon has over 49 million customers, and the majority of them use the Groupon mobile app to purchase deals and goods, so your work on our iOS app will be used by millions of people every day.
 

You will work on projects and code that directly impact the user experience. As an iOS Engineer, you will lead projects and foster engineering excellence as we challenge the status quo and take on large-scale problems. You will be part of a team that challenges each other, learns together, and never lets a cat gif go unnoticed.
 

We offer the scope and impact a smart and creative developer like you craves. If you have ambition to work at a massive scale and love owning your own roadmap, we want to talk to you.
 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You will develop the code that improves our overall iOS mobile customer experience

  • Work alongside other partners (such as Product Managers, Designers, and QA) to build and ship features that go into the Groupon consumer application

  • Rapidly add new functionality, take on complex problems, and ship quality applications

  • Work with other developers across Groupon to ensure we’re using the right methodologies and practices

  • Help build our technical execution plans and ensure we hit all expectations

  • Teach and mentor fellow engineers, and work to foster an environment of development and inclusivity
     

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • You need 2-7 years of experience in software design and development with at least 1-3 in mobile with a BS or MS in computer science (or related field).

  • As an independent, self-motivated, and an avid technologist, you should have a strong interest in mobile and an intuition for UX and consumer behavior

  • Deep knowledge of iOS

  • Experience writing testable code & unit tests

  • Experience with Swift programming language a plus

  • Experience working with other mobile platforms a plus

  • Experience building one or more deployed consumer iOS applications preferred

  • An interest in understanding the “why,” and a desire to pull the thread to understand how things work
     

We value engineers who are:

  • Customer-focused: We believe that doing what’s right for the customer is ultimately what will drive our business forward.

  • Obsessed with quality: Your production code just works & scales linearly

  • Team players. You believe that more can be achieved together. You listen to feedback and also provide supportive feedback to help others grow/improve.

  • Fast learners: We are willing to disrupt our existing business to trial new products and solutions. You love learning how to use new technologies and then rapidly apply them to new problems.

  • Pragmatic: We do things quickly to learn what our customers desire. You know when it’s appropriate to take shortcuts that don’t sacrifice quality or maintainability.

  • Owners: Engineers at Groupon know how to positively impact the business.
