With more than 6,000 employees in 16 countries, there are probably 6,000 reasons why people love working here. But they generally fall into a few areas: Respect, Community, Ownership, Inspiration, and Customers.
Build Local Everywhere
One of the things that makes Groupon different is it works under the assumption that local communities are vital to the health of people, cities, and economies. And Groupon supports those communities by helping local businesses thrive. But when we think “local,” we think about all the different locals around the world. By tying all those locals together, we make a huge impact.
We sit at the nexus of offering a vast array of local merchants to our customers while developing those merchants’ businesses. Not many products enable a salesperson to actually interact with the two key stakeholders of the retail world. To succeed and build a new way, you need to have a lot of talented and driven people. I have them and I am grateful for that.Rober Ruiz
We work hard every single day to find the best merchants across local, travel, goods, and coupons for our customers. Local businesses are the core of our communities and the work we do for these businesses is one of the reasons I love working at Groupon. I love small businesses because they offer unique things to me as a customer. I’m glad we can help them thrive and obtain new customers.Julie Szudarek
In any one week, we’ll be creating offers for museums and attractions, restaurants, and hotels…all the way through to independent business owners such as mechanics and hairdressers. Learning from business owners about how they approach their work and align their varying business models is massively inspiring.Nate Morgan
Make Work Less Boring
Maybe it’s the fact that we started in Chicago (home of The Second City), but there’s something in our DNA that says you can work hard and get amazing things done without being boring. And we’ve build Groupon across continents and industries with that same DNA. Every location and team makes work less boring in their own way (from office-roaming dinosaurs to karaoke to bunny outfits), but know that you don’t have to be dull to succeed.
Groupon is not like anywhere I have ever worked. You are encouraged to be yourself, to be unafraid to shine, to express your opinion and to be involved in shaping our future. We make it a matter of course to think outside the box: we don’t just talk about it, we do it.Kathleen McRory
I love working at Groupon because it has a startup culture–with a great environment and room to try crazy ideas–with the capabilities, impact, and resources that a large public company provides. We also respect our work-life balance, which makes everybody happier and less stressed. There’s nothing like working on a team of passionate people who have a great time being together.Juan Pablo Verdejo
Why do I like working for Groupon? I love working at Groupon because it gives me the opportunity to work with almost 2,000 of the brightest and most fun people on the planet. Everyone brings their own ideas and heart to each and every day. I consider myself truly blessed to call Groupon my work home.Julie Johnston
