Do you have an eye for detail that borders on obsession? Are you a champion for quality and collaboration?

 

Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success.

The Design Union is a team of talented Product Designers, UX Researchers, and UX Content Strategists at Groupon who are striving to revolutionize local commerce impacting the experience of customers through our creativity and real passion for solid UX design. Our multidisciplinary team focuses on innovating both consumer and merchant sides of product initiatives. We drive the end-to-end product design for both customers and merchants—including defining the problem rooted from customer insights, brainstorming on the product vision, crafting and validating workflows, interactions, and visualizations.

 

As a design team, we champion entrepreneurship, authenticity, collaboration, and quality. Check out our team websiteteam video from an offsite this last year as well as Medium blogs, and take a peek at our Design team culture.

 

As a Senior UX Researcher in Design Union at Groupon, you will actively participate in ideation exercises to push the boundaries of what we build and to improve existing products, both in and outside personal expertise.

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?
