Are you the kind of person who is passionate about selling, negotiation and convincing? Are you great at listening to people? Are you target-oriented?
Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses. We connect people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services and experiences. 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 Spanish Business Development teams focus on building partnerships with new Groupon merchants based all over Spain. We spend our days learning about what makes small-business tick and how to craft unique marketing campaigns to help them reach their targeted audiences. Our expertise ultimately creates jobs and drives economies as we help local merchants thrive.
As a Business Development Representative (BDR), you'll focus on local business for the Groupon platform. Starting day 1, you'll receive hands-on professional sales training and learn the core skills needed to be successful long term. Through our training program, you'll learn about customer relationship building, Groupon's sales process, sales strategy, sales psychology, and more.
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?

⦁ Research and develop new business opportunities by prospecting potential clients and generating new leads - targeting local to engage, consult, and close local deals
⦁ Consistently achieve and/or exceed your sales targets
