Staff Engineer at Groupon
Warsaw, PL

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

 

Are you a passionate and energetic technology enthusiast ready to drive engineering standards? Are you passionate about developing software products and solutions with a demonstrated capability of acting as a Technology Lead?  Are you a problem solver; someone who enjoys resolving issues, and creating solutions for challenging problems? 

 

We're looking for a great technology evangelist to work on a data platform, drive new products design, improve performance and leverage applied science for worldwide business impact. We work self-managing, collaborative agile teams to implement stuff quickly.

 

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. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

 

 Our development ecosystem:

  • Java, Python, Scala

  • AWS: EC2, S3, Sagemaker, EMR, …

  • Docker, Kubernetes

  • Kafka, Spark, Apache Beam, Storm

  • Elasticsearch, Cassandra, HBase

  • Snowlake, Dremio, Presto

  • GitHub, JIRA

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You will lead the design and implementation of systems within the enterprise that will pushforward strategic global goals like Data Science Platform, Search & Recommendation solutions etc.

  • With a deep understanding of our core business, you will focus on solutions that come from better architecture, not just better code

  • You will drive initiatives across engineering teams with a focus on increasing site performance and stability

  • You will work closely with other engineers within your group and across the product and engineering organization to identify problems and build effective technical solutions

  • You will mentor team members and encourage your peers to do the best possible work

  • You will advocate for and improve upon our tech culture principles

  • As the technical expert, you will ensure your team is at the forefront of the organisation and constantly network with the wider development community in Groupon.

 We’re excited about you if you have:

  • At least 12+ years experience in developing highly scalable software products and solutions

  • Proficiency in one or more languages: Java, C#, Scala, C++ or Python

  • Experience with Docker desired

  • Experience with search engines (Elasticsearch, AWS CloudSearch etc.) will be a plus

  • Excellent problem-solving skills with ability to set the technical direction for strategic projects and at the same time stay close to the details.
