Job Description

Groupon is looking for the next wave of great front-end and back-end software engineers. We work in small, independent and agile teams, and collaborate with product designers to implement stuff quickly. As part of our technology team, you'll use a variety of technologies and development practices to build pioneering local commerce applications used by hundreds of millions of people.

There are not a lot of boundaries here, so expect to make a big impact. The code we check in today is running in production around the world within a week - sometimes that day. So we need people that will take pride in the quality of their code and take it personally when there's a bug that affects our customer experience.

The kind of stuff you'll be doing:
Front-end:
Implementing and deploying new global features on the Groupon web or mobile (iOS, Android, touch) platforms
Interacting with product managers and designers to make sure all user interactions are well thought out, aesthetically pleasing and implemented correctly
Testing features across all major browsers - desktop, tablet, and mobile
Identifying and fixing bug and performance issues

Back-end:
Designing high-performance RESTful web services serving billions of requests a week
Personalizing content and promotions based on user interests
Unraveling the myriad of payment technologies available globally
Optimizing placement of inventory across fulfillment centers
Building large-scale infrastructural data systems using open-source technologies
The kind of experience we're looking for:
BS, MS, or Ph.D. in Computer Science or equivalent experience
Strong programming fundamentals - data structures, algorithms, OOD
Experience in at least one server-side language (e.g. Java, Ruby, Python) and one dynamic scripting language (e.g. Ruby, PHP, Python, Perl)
experience across all levels of the technology stack from browser to DB
familiarity with SQL database programming and performance
Excellent understanding of how web and mobile technologies work
Particular expertise in raising gravity defying space cats (kittens preferred)
