Are you a problem solver? Do you have a passion for building process from the ground up?
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.
As Groupon grows, our business is constantly evolving and changing. Our Transformation Team leads the programmes and projects that will help Groupon grow into a scalable e-commerce operation for our team and partners. We are looking for a Senior Project Manager to build project programmes for multiple international projects.
Your work will play a key role in delivering innovative solutions and change management across the business. You will keep control of all project documentation and software and ensuring projects are run as per the Groupon Project Management guidelines, supporting the Program Manager and ensuring they are set up for success. A keen eye on the future will be paramount for success, as you will be regularly assessing timelines for successful project delivery—and making sure all partners are collaborating seamlessly along the way.
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?
