Product Manager

| Chicago

 

Ready to build products in a truly product-driven company? Are you passionate about using technology to innovate on our customer’s behalf?

 

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 Product team, our Product Managers are the glue holding our business and technology strategy goals together. We use a variety of different technologies and development practices to liaise and build groundbreaking local commerce products used by millions of people. You’ll have a healthy mix of both business-driving and technical leadership responsibilities, allowing you the autonomy to be both analytical and creative.

As a Product Manager for Getaways, you will work with our Engineering, Operations, Finance and Strategy teams to create a product strategy and roadmap.  The strategy will tie to the overall operating plan for Getaways and the roadmap will be used to align various stakeholders at Getaways and throughout the company.  You will be responsible for directing the priorities of associated Engineering teams and making adjustments to your roadmap as the business requires from time to time and keep cross-functional partners appraised of relevant developments.  

 

In addition to the functional and operating requirements, as a Senior Product Manager, you will develop the underlying business justification for your plan and determine how to measure and report on success.

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 ownership 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?

 

As a Product Manager, you will:

  • Own the end-to-end product vision and strategy to drive execution for Getaways User Experience, Search and Discovery efforts

  • Work with designers, developers and senior management to build features and experiences that enhance the customer experience

  • Launch bold new features on mobile web and web that drives revenue lift and increased purchase frequency

  • Partner with internal and external stakeholders to understand new feature needs, understand what features are realistically achievable and are priorities under the operating plan, and build out a corresponding roadmap and vision for how those features should work, how consumers would use those features

  • Phase complex products as may be necessary and understand tactically how influence various parts of the organization effectively to get a “foot in the door” for your projects.

  • Monitor, measure, and track the success and/or failure of your programs and make recommendations for how to adapt based upon the results we find.

 

We’re excited about you if you meet the following requirements:

  • MBA, Information Systems, BS Computer Science, Software Engineering or similar field

  • 3-5 years in Product Management

  • Formal experience with product management documentation and related processes

  • 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, and ability to present your ideas vision, and your plans to everyone and anyone

  • 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 big plus if you have prior Mobile Product experience

An Insider's view of Groupon

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Milan

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
