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 an additional product development center in Palo Alto, California. 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)Pros
Good base salary
Outside reps work from home
Mac, Iphone providedCons
Outrageous growth goals
Staff turnover is ridiculous
Micro-managing at its worstAdvice to ManagementAdvice
Listen to your seasoned sales reps
Daily emails to the whole team which include everyone's effectiveness is absurd! That should be 100% confidential.
Changing goals and expectations every month/quarter is unfair. Stick with a plan for at least a year. If you want consistency, practice what you preach.
Treat different markets separately. A rep in Chicago should not have the same goals as a rep in a small-town market.
Stop setting your good sales reps up for failure!!
Please, for the love of God - come up with some new and fresh ideas for sales training. Your sales process is growing old.... Fast.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
