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.

We think taking our jobs seriously while not taking ourselves too seriously can be a healthy way to grow as a company.

    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than 3 years)


    * Relatively autonomous app development teams * Smart people * Lots of interesting technologies * Weekly Geekfest meetups * Inclusive workplace * Personal growth benefit for engineers (budget for conferences, training, books, etc) * Twice a year hackfests


    * A bit chaotic * Frequent shifts in direction and priority * The stock market doesn't like GRPN * No 401(k) match

    Advice to Management

    Continue treating employees well and creating an awesome work environment for software developers. Try to clarify the business vision and direction, and ruthlessly prioritize.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Groupon.


    The on-campus screening was two back-to-back 45-minute talks with two Groupon software engineers one-on-one. It was very standard -- talking about past experiences, being tested on some popular algorithm questions, and asking general questions. Then they invited me to an on-site interview with a few teams that have openings and fit my skill set or interests. The questions were not difficult to solve -- simple and obvious choice of variables and data structures, and the implementation should be straightforward from there.
