Chicago, IL, US / Seattle, WA, US

Ready to build products in a truly product-driven company? Are you passionate about using technology to change the world?  Are you excited at the prospect of joining a new team and helping shape its success?

Groupons 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 are 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. The Groupon Ads team is seeking a product manager who is excited about accelerating the Ads platform that offers a rich array of advertising solutions to Groupon merchants and helps customers discover products.

This is the opportunity to drive forward the consumer and merchant facing products that will help grow Groupon’s Global Advertising business, which is active in 15 countries across NA, EMEA and APAC. In this role, you are the product owner for Groupon Ads portfolio and will play a pivotal role building compelling, impactful advertising solutions such as self-serve platforms to provide campaign automation and management, full funnel campaign targeting and measurement solutions designed to support the needs of Groupon Merchants by helping customers discover, research and buy across various Groupon properties. You will partner with talented product analysts, data scientists, software engineers, business stakeholders, and global leadership teams. You’ll contribute to a high-caliber team in a business that is experiencing rapid and dramatic growth. You'll think strategically to create a product vision and multi-year roadmap, can influence without direct authority, and enjoy the process of bringing solutions to life with strong skills around translating stakeholder needs into elegant requirements and user stories.

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 doing the following:

  • Be customer-focused and obsessed with solving problems and looking for opportunities to improve user experience

  • Collaborate regularly with leaders across the business to ensure that product vision aligns with business needs and requirements

  • Build relationships with different people across all teams, partnering with internal stakeholders across the business to understand new feature needs and bring those features to life

  • Create and own the vision and roadmap for your area of the product portfolio, prioritizing based on bringing maximum value to the business

  • Work with design and engineering team to come up with mockups and feature requirements

  • Create technical specifications, drive development, test results and iterate

  • Own product backlog and prioritization

  • Partner with design, data science and engineering teams to validate and execute your roadmap at lightning speed

  • Be outcome-focused and keen to measure the impact of everything you have prioritized and released.

  • Provide clear communication and coordination across business, sales, operations, finance, design and development teams

  • Be creative. Have ideas and opinions. Don't be afraid to try, fail and try again.
