Bangalore, IN

Grow as a developer by building things that help local businesses around the world


Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of

building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting 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.

Are you a passionate, energetic and technology enthusiast eager to work at a rapid pace

with the flexibility to work across our suite of technologies? Are you are a problem solver;

someone who enjoys debugging code, resolving issues, and creating solutions for common

problems? Do you get a little obsessed with the details?

We are looking for a software engineer to join our team to support and evolve the design,

implementation, and operational support of internal systems that span business side and

engineering departments.

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 significant 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?
