Who We are, How We Work
We provide a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live or lively events.
Culturally, we believe that great people make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward. We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.
Be sure to follow our People Blog!
We view culture as a composite of our mission and values. A tremendous source of pride for us, our culture is inclusive of the work we do, and how we do it. Embracing change, thinking long-term, and continuously making decisions grounded in customer worship are a few tenets we live by. Surprise is key for us too, and that manifests in numerous areas, though most noticeably in our Editorial voice. We think taking our jobs seriously while not taking ourselves too seriously can be a healthy way to grow as a company.
In North America, we have our headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, a burgeoning office in Seattle, and a product development center in Palo Alto, California. Additional locations are our ideel office in New York, a newly-opened sales office in Phoenix, Arizona, and our tech-based San Francisco location. All locations are accessible by public transportation or private teleportation. Additionally, some teammates work from home offices in many Groupon markets.
Check out our currently available jobs, and if any appear to be a good match, please let us know by applying. We have hiring teams dedicated to each category below so that every application can be reviewed by relevant human eyes. If our team has interest in learning more, they will reach out directly. Thank you for stopping by.
Groupon Grassroots and Employee Volunteer Program
A new way to discover local causes, rally together, and lend a helping hand
Groupon Grassroots is our philanthropic arm featuring a wide variety of great local projects that subscribers can support. Every campaign connects consumers with enough people to achieve something awesome they couldn't have done alone. While Groupon helps build local businesses in each market, Groupon Grassroots helps support the communities where these business flourish.
In addition to helping these great causes through our consumers, our employees regularly get a chance to participate in projects themselves. We have also formed a Green Committee that works to keep our workplace sustainable, from getting rid of trash cans to providing reusable mugs for coffee and drinks.
Groupon’s Employee Volunteer Program is how we harness our collective employee power for positive change. Groupon employees regularly volunteer their time, skills and creative insights to help those in need and to help have a measurable impact on growing local economies, promoting distinctive communities and deepening our customers’ attachment to place. Groupon is uniquely positioned to address a wide range of needs and issues in diverse communities due to the range of skills and talents our diverse staff hold—if there’s a need, we can fill it.

I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than 3 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
If you do what you're supposed to do, hit your numbers and don't let your foot off the pedal, there's a tremendous growth opportunity at this company. They're very generous with commissions and bonuses. We're working with several hundred people, on three floors, so it's a very lively atmosphere to be in. The culture is very laid back, the managers are extremely helpful and literally vouch for you each time and overall it's a fun place to be at.
The constant changes takes a toll on your daily activities. There has been changes, almost every other quarter, regarding payment structures, commissions, hierarchy, management, daily expectations, goals, performance reviews, etc. It's very hard to keep up.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing. Try to minimize changes as soon as you settle with some.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university – interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL).
Applied through a school program, so I submitted my resume through them, waited about a month and got an interview. Scheduled it with recruiting via email, went to Chicago headquarters and interviewed with four people at varying levels in the department. The interview itself took about two hours and I didn't see any of the office but the room I was interviewing in and the lobby. Heard back from them two weeks later.
