Groupon - Senior Product Manager

Ready to build products in a truly product-driven company? Are you passionate about using technology to change the world? Are you excited at the prospect of joining a new team and helping shape its success?

Groupon is a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time e-commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live events. At the same time, we create groundbreaking tools for merchants to grow and manage their businesses.

Culturally, we believe that great people working together make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward. Community matters to us; it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We power communities by connecting local merchants to millions of consumers to help them grow their businesses and to make life less boring for consumers. Groupon is the perfect hybrid between the feel and impact opportunity of a startup, with the assets of a public company.

The Team

This is the opportunity to join a new team being created to drive forward the consumer and merchant facing products that will help grow Groupon’s ‘International’ business, which is active in 13 countries across EMEA and APAC.

It’s the start of something really special - the chance to be part of a team that is growing and establishing itself as a world-class product organisation. We will be building experiences that delight and earn the trust of our customers - those who browse and purchase on our websites and apps, but also our internal teams and merchants who interact with our business support products.

You will work in this newly created team, empowered to drive your particular product forward - effectively communicating the product vision and breaking it down into increments which provide business value at every step of the journey. You will lead from discovery, through development, launch and beyond, collaborating and enthusing user experience & design specialists, engineers, as well as business colleagues & stakeholders.

We’re looking to fill a number of new positions and are looking for a varied range of industry experience and skills to build out a super-charged team. We’re therefore keen to hear from Product Managers who’ve worked in a variety of industries, not purely those with an E-Commerce background.

The Role

As a Senior Product Manager for Groupon, you will:

  • Be customer-focused and obsessed with solving problems and looking for opportunities to improve user experience,

  • Collaborate regularly with leaders across the business, including the C-Suite, to ensure that product vision aligns with business needs and requirements,

  • Be meticulously outcome-focused, prioritising on business value throughout your product areas,

  • Influence and execute product strategy through effective leadership and collaboration, effectively influencing cross-functional teams,

  • Partner with design, data science and engineering teams to validate and execute your roadmap at lightning speed,

  • Provide specialised domain knowledge to colleagues across Groupon globally,

  • Manage and/or mentor other product managers within the organisation,

  • Understand and communicate customer problems and opportunities from market research, consumer insights, analytics and competitive insights, market potential and industry trends,

  • Assist the Director of Product in evolving the new International Product organisation, contributing with experience and best practice to help build out a world class team.

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • At least 5 years experience in Product Management,

  • You have worked in a cross-cultural, geographically distributed team,

  • An entrepreneurial spirit: A self-starter mindset to execute in a fast-paced environment with minimal direction

  • The ability to operate as a self-starter who can execute in a fast-paced environment with minimal direction,

  • An affinity for data: Use data both as an informant and a tool for decision making and generating buy-in,

  • The ability to work collaboratively in an environment that promotes constant team communication,

  • Excellent verbal and written communication that inspires audiences at all levels

  • Have a passion for test and learn methodologies (e.g. design sprints or A/B and multivariate testing) to validate ideas for the roadmap,

  • An affinity for calling the shots and leading changes while also building bridges,

  • Experience of directly managing or mentoring other product managers,

  • Fluency in a language in one of our key markets, in addition to English, would be an added bonus (although not essential) - Japanese, Spanish, German, French, Polish or Italian, for example.
