Seattle engineering at Groupon

Animated gif of the sound

I think Groupon engineers are some of the most positive and helpful people I’ve ever met. Groupon is where I learned how to ask questions without fear. There is no competition, only collaboration and cooperation. It’s incredible to be part of such a supportive community; everyone wants to see everyone else succeed!
