Manager, Software Engineering II at Groupon
Bangalore, IN

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 an Engineering Manager to write the next chapter in our Platform Engineering. You will have complete ownership of technical and product roadmap work closely with Product, Business and Operations teams. You will be responsible for scoping, architectural design, working with other technology teams and running the iterative rollout of features. All the systems we build/manage are critical to the success of the business. This means quality and reliability are paramount and large scale launches have to be threaded carefully without impacting day-to-day business.

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?

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • Leading a team of software engineers to help us develop microservices at a scale that is required for Groupon
  • Hiring, mentoring and coaching your direct reports to be the best they can be, both in their current roles and in their careers
  • Working cross-functionally with other teams to understand and prioritize user asks, features and tooling.
  • Owning and developing the roadmap to support your long term vision for the services and conduct tactical execution at the same time
  • Running ongoing delivery and daily operations of services
  • Continuously improving the management and engineering processes for the team and services

We’re excited about you if:

  • You have been responsible for building and leading a high performance engineering team.
  • You are highly technical with a strong background in computer science. You have a track record of handling technical design and completing projects with high quality.
  • You have experience motivating teams towards delivering business results in a dynamic agile environment.
  • You are comfortable operating at leadership level as well as getting your hands dirty.
  • You have a history of launching v0.1, 0.2 quickly and iterating.
  • You have excellent communication skills, both in person and via the keyboard.
  • You have experience in related domains within e-commerce.
  • You have made decisions that impact technical design, development and planning for one or more projects/programs that impact multiple teams or functions.
  • You frequently interact with multiple cross-functional teams and lead a cooperative effort to drive key technical projects.

We value Managers who have:

  • B.E or higher degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Several years of experience in designing and developing software.
  • Experience building and growing a team of engineers.
  • Experience designing and implementing large, scalable, distributed systems
  • Ability to architect, design and develop complex systems.
  • Good interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to work with multiple languages Java, Javascript, Python, etc.
  • Backend experience with RESTful API and RDBMS (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, etc.)
  • Proficiency in OO programming (Java preferred)
  • Creative analytical skills, debugging and troubleshooting skills
  • Been a role model for engineers on the team, providing timely coaching and mentoring to all.
  • Passion for ensuring high quality architecture and customer experience.
