Do You Want to Grow As a Developer and Build Things That Matter?
Are you searching for an engineering team that operates at a global scale very few companies reach? Are you looking to code and build features in one of the top-rated e-commerce mobile apps in the world?

Groupon's Merchant Mobile Engineering Team is making a clear impact on our bottom line. And with the growth of our mobile marketplace, we are getting more internal and external exposure every single day. Here, you will focus on the Android app, which helps merchants to create products, Redeem vouchers and tracking of sales. Groupon has over 2 million merchants, and the majority of them use the Groupon mobile app to purchase deals and goods, so your work on our Android app will be used by millions of merchants.
You will work on projects and code that directly impact the user experience.

You will be part of a team that challenges each other, learns together, and never lets a cat gif go unnoticed.
