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.
Our global Compensation and Benefits team partners with teams across Groupon to plan, develop, and lead Groupon’s pay and benefits programs.

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company.
