Software Development Engineering Intern, Summer 2019

| Seattle

 

You chose to become an engineer because you believe in technology’s ability to make a difference in the world. So why would you spend your days building things that don’t matter?

 

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. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

 

We might look like an ordinary e-commerce app, but under the surface we’re a cutting-edge technology company building products that positively impact the lives of millions of people and merchants globally. We have big goals to get to 2020 and beyond, and need you to help us get there.

 

Now, we're looking for the next wave of great software development engineering interns. 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 millions of people. There are few boundaries for our interns, so expect to make a huge impact. The code we commit 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.

 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • Front end development (Javascript/Node.js, HTML, CSS)

  • Mobile development (Swift/Objective-C, Java)

  • Full stack and Back end development (Java, Ruby)

 

What to Expect:

  • Exposure - Being a household name gives employees the opportunity to work in startup-like environment and focus on deeply interesting work that you wouldn’t get to do anywhere else; prepare to make a large scale impact in a short amount of time

  • Professional Development - Participate in weekly “lunch and learns” with other engineering and business functions, skill building workshops, and networking sessions

  • Fun - Explore the city through our planned intern social outings, and develop your network while getting to know your peers and Groupon’s leaders

  • Mentorship - Look forward to one-on-one time with dedicated managers and mentors to facilitate your growth throughout the summer internship experience

 

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • Currently enrolled in a BS, MS or PhD program in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a related field

  • Solid foundational Computer Science knowledge (e.g. data structures, algorithms, testing practices)

  • Must demonstrate strong coding ability

  • Previous experience working in collaborative technical teams (e.g. class projects, hackathons, previous work experience, open source projects)

  • Ability to apply creative problem solving skills

  • You have a strong desire to learn and grow

  • Team players. You believe that more can be achieved together. You listen to feedback and also provide supportive feedback to help others grow/improve.

  • Fast learners: We are willing to disrupt our existing business to trial new products and solutions. You love learning how to use new technologies and then rapidly apply them to new problems.

  • Pragmatic: We do things quickly to learn what our customers desire. You know when it’s appropriate to take shortcuts that don’t sacrifice quality or maintainability.

  • Owners: Engineers at Groupon know how to positively impact the business.

Groupon provides a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live or lively events. At the same time, we are providing advertising options and tools that merchants can use to grow and manage their businesses. Culturally, we believe that great people make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward. Community matters to us on an internal, local and global scale—it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.
