Senior Recruiter - Germany
Do you have a passion for people and innovation? Our Talent Acquisition teams build Groupon's greatest asset: our employees.
Are you the kind of recruiter who is passionate about developing relationships and helping others find the right fit? Do you enjoy working on a collaborative team with less silos and greater ownership? How about taking your ideas from concept to reality quickly? Then we want to talk.
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'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:
You will source, screen, interview, negotiate with, and hire top talent for our German business group with a focus on hiring for our sales teams
You will work hand-in-hand with hiring teams and senior management in Berlin to ensure that hires match by more than the immediate needs of the Goods team or applicant
You should champion an amazing candidate experience. This includes evangelizing an amazing process within hiring teams, thorough strategy meetings, interview debriefs, and process re-calibration when necessary
You will build relationships and work with cross-functional teams, including business leaders, HR, Legal, Compensation, etc.
Articulate our business mission and core values in ways that resonate with each particular contact, presenting an objective view of life at Groupon
Participate in process-improvement initiatives within Groupon's Global Recruiting function

Work on Employer Branding projects for the German market, including ongoing monitoring of our Kununu page as well as events and campaigns in Berlin
Occasional travel to Berlin in order to manage Assessment Centers as well as conducting interview training and coaching sessions with managers
We’re excited about you if you have:
While a Bachelor's Degree is useful, you should have 8+ years recruiting experience in a rapidly changing environment; experience recruiting on the German market as well as for sales functions is a plus
You need a track record of delivery and partnership with multiple hiring managers concurrently, including hiring managers at senior level
Experience owning multiple requisitions across a variety of different business groups
Experience sourcing candidates through social media beyond LinkedIn
Experience negotiating offers and closing candidates successfully
Native to fluent German as well as fluent English is a must
