Account Executive - Affiliate at Groupon
Sydney, AU

Our Groupon Coupons team continues to establish Groupon as an integral marketing and advertising partner of iconic global brands. These brands not only shift the needle towards team and company revenue goals, but they are also a major source of subscriber activation and engagement.


As an Account Executive in our Affiliate Coupons team, you’ll be responsible for managing and growing affiliate partnerships within the ANZ market for the International Groupon and Vouchercloud Coupons Team. You’ll assist Account Managers with the growth of our top merchant accounts with a focus on delivering effective campaigns working within our Global Internationals teams.


The main purpose of this role is to manage mid and long tail merchants in the retail space while ensuring top quality content is promoted at all times. You will provide focus on client services and deliver the very best service to merchants, working with content teams, liaising with merchant managers and network managers on a daily basis. You’ll recruit new merchants, negotiate bespoke commercial deals, deliver strategic and effective campaigns to drive online ad sales and affiliate partnerships.


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 businesses thrive.
