Job Description

The Kind of Team We Are
We work in small, independent teams and use agile practices to move quality code into production quickly. We collaborate with our product designers to conceive of and implement high impact technology that is defining how the world views local commerce. Our team is passionate about using technology to change the world. But, like Groupon itself, we don't take ourselves too seriously.
The Kind of Person We Want
You don't need or want a lot of boundaries -- you expect to make a big impact. The code you check in will help in ensuring our customers and merchants are receiving the best experience possible. You will take pride in the quality of your work, and take it personally when there's a bug that has slowed the site down. You'll hold yourself and your peers to the highest standards.
You'll have opportunities to build tooling that enables our product and development counterparts to build web applications in Ruby on Rails, mobile applications for iPhone, iPad and Android, hard-core deal targeting and personalization algorithms, and massively scalable server architectures using Hadoop.
The Kind of Stuff You'll Be Doing
Implementing testing tools that will validate the next generation of Groupon products and features for web and mobile
Building complex algorithms that validates the personalized experiences for each of our millions of customers
Working with the team to design user interactions that are simple, intuitive and implemented correctly
Architecting code for massive scale, high performance, and maximum security
The Kind of Experience We Expect
Graduating with a BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science or related field
Knowledge of TCP/IP and network programming
Experience or strong interest in:
High performance and scalable server architectures, or;
Cutting-edge web application development, or;
User interface, user experience and human-computer interface
Obsessive about both your work quality and that of your peers
Not afraid to jump into all levels of the technology stack
Ruby on Rails or dynamic language experience a plus
Open source experience a plus
Technology user group, conference presentations or volunteering a plus
Particular expertise in raising gravity defying space cats (kittens preferred)
