Location: Chicago, IL


Groupon is seeking top-notch developers who
love working on all aspects of software used by millions of people
around the world.  We are looking to add to a talented team of folks who
are passionate about software and work to build efficient and scalable
systems to support our growing platform.
Some great things we
have been able to deliver include a site built entirely on Rails which
scaled throughout a short period of immense growth.  We have a proven
commitment to having the fastest turnaround possible for our customers,
believe in short iterations and having direct involvement with the
business.  For example, aside from helping conceive and design a loyalty
program, we implemented it from the bottom up and brought it to beta
within weeks. Internally, we continue to build great tools for our own
staff to help them kick ass.
