Sr. Product Manager, Mobile Search & Discovery

| Chicago

 

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.

 

Groupon’s mobile apps get over 50% of overall traffic & have been downloaded more than 100 million times worldwide, making it one of the most popular and highest-rated e-commerce apps on the planet.

 

The Mobile Search & Discovery team helps Groupon customers find the right deal at the right time across all native platforms. We are an excellent product team with a history of success and a great reputation within our 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 significant impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of passionate about helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

 

As a Senior Product Manager, Mobile you will:

  • Craft the product vision and strategy, and drive execution for our Mobile Search, Discovery & Notifications experiences across both iOS and Android platforms.

  • Your mobile apps will impact all global channels and drive material impact on the company's bottom line!

  • Own the full product development lifecycle for your area: craft and communicate your vision, provide thought leadership, help define the product roadmap, design your KPIs, and deliver your features.

  • Your research, market trends and perform competitor analysis will inform the new innovation disrupting the marketplace.

  • Work closely with design, engineering, QA and other product partners to shape this plan and execute through delivery.

 

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • BS/MS/Ph.D. in Computer Science, Software Engineering or similar field

  • At least 5 years of industry experience; including 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 big plus if you have prior Mobile Product experience

  • A plus if you have an MBA

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.
