Lead Technical Product Manager

| Seattle

 

Ready to build products in a truly product-driven company? Are you passionate about using technology to change the world?

 

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.

 

As a part of Groupon’s Engineering team, our Product teams are the glue holding our technical projects together. While they might look different in each part of the organization, they all use a variety of different technologies and development practices to liaise and build groundbreaking local commerce products used by millions of people. Depending on the team you jump into, you’ll have a healthy mix of both technical and business-facing responsibilities, allowing you the autonomy to be both analytical and creative.

 

As a Lead Technical Product Manager on the Merchandising Product Team, you will own key product initiatives, develop their KPIs and then build and drive a roadmap to deliver on them.  You will work with business leads, designers, developers, analytics and other Product Managers to build products that will have a direct impact on company wide initiatives. You’ll work in a small, independent team and use agile practices - giving you the perfect hybrid between the feel and impact opportunity of a startup, with the assets of a public company.

 

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?

 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • Building relationships with different people across all business organizations while exploring different functional areas of Groupon

  • As a Senior Product Manager, you'll partner with internal stakeholders to understand new feature needs, building out the road map and vision to bring those features to life

  • Working with business partners to write designs for features through understanding other teams' needs

  • Driving and owning the vision and strategy for your area of expertise

  • Shipping your ideas and building out features that may go live on our site

 

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • BS Computer Science,  Software Engineering or similar field

  • 5+ years relevant industry experience; including at least 3 years in Product Management

  • You’re a self-starter who can execute in a fast-paced environment with minimal direction

  • Ability to work collaboratively in an environment that promotes constant team communication

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

  • You have an excellent understanding of product development and how web and mobile technologies work

  • You have strong analytical, problem solving, and project management skills

  • You can call the shots and enjoy leading changes

  • A plus if you have MBA, or MS or PhD program in Computer Science

  • A big plus if you have prior Mobile Product experience

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.
