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.

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.

    Solid overall training experience. Positive trainers. Comfortable work environment.

    Metrics based evaluations. Expect quality merchants to be closed yet majority of leads they generate/provide don't fit the standards they themselves set.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    Started with an on-campus technical interview with an employee. He asked two fairly simple coding questions, one about binary trees and another about palindromes. This was followed by a 30 minute personal interview over the phone with a recruiter. This was then followed by an hour long coding interview over the phone and coderpad. This was a very techinical interview, asked about data structures to help compute mean and median.
