Sr. Software Engineer in Test - 3rd Party Integrations at Groupon
Chicago, IL, US

Expand your QA tool set whilst being a part of a team that builds things that help local businesses around the world thrive


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.


Do you have a natural affinity for QA? Are you a passionate, energetic tester who champions the customer’s experience? Are you able to search out clarity from ambiguity? Do you get a little obsessed over discovering that edge case that no one had considered?


We are looking for a software test engineer to help us test and launch the next generation of features for our consumer apps. You’ll be working on apps that are responsible for over 70% of Groupon’s transactions, consistently maintains a 5-star rating in both the app stores, and recently exceeded a combined 200M downloads.


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 local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?


You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You’ll be the test owner on small development and product tiger teams for upcoming 3rd party integrations and supporting product features

  • You’ll strategize, plan, document and execute testing for upcoming features that incorporate and interface with a diverse set of external partners

  • You’ll help triage, prioritize and assign incoming feedback from our internal test teams and test automation suites

  • You’ll coordinate with offshore teams in Romania to triage and prioritize bugs.

  • You’ll work across team boundaries, working with back-end and front-end teams to execute test plans and debug issues


We’re excited about you if you have:

  • BS, MS or PhD in Computer Sciences or related fields with 5+ years of relevant QA experience

  • Experience testing applications and/or sites that utilize REST services

  • Experience working in an agile environment

  • Good communication and collaboration skills

  • Great problem solving skills and an ability to find alternative ways of doing things
