Did you know that we build some of the best sales people?
Groupon is an experiences marketplace that brings people more ways to get the most out of their city or wherever they may be. By enabling real-time mobile commerce across local businesses, live events and travel destinations, Groupon helps people find and discover experiences–big and small, new and familiar–that make for a full, fun and rewarding life.

Our Merchant Consultant teams focus on building relationships with existing Groupon merchants around the world. We spend our days learning about what makes small-business tick and how to maximize relationships with merchants to ensure continued growth of these accounts. We might look like an ordinary ecommerce app, but under the surface we’re using the latest technology to build products that help small businesses thrive in ways they couldn't
have dreamed of before.
You'll focus on full cycle management of merchant accounts. Whether you're optimizing a live deal for a business that we've worked with for years, or negotiating to bring a merchant back on our platform, you'll be the point of contact for our existing merchants at Groupon.
Starting day one, you will receive hands-on professional sales training and learn the core skills needed to be successful. Through our training program, you'll learn about customer relationship building, Groupon's sales process, sales strategy, sales psychology, and more.
You’ll spend time on the following:
- You will be empowered to nurture and grow our existing merchant relationships. This includes re-engaging former merchants through cold calling to retain, consult, and close local deals
- You will facilitate revenue growth by improving and optimizing deals
- You will utilize knowledge of deal structure and strategy to reach Groupon’s and merchants’ desired outcomes and maximize satisfaction, engagement, retention, and profit
- You will develop familiarity with each merchant’s business, including but not limited to: products and/or services, consumer demographics, consumer ratings, points of competitive differentiation, merchant economic model, and revenue/profit drivers

- You will be expected to consistently achieve and/or exceed your sales targets and merchant satisfaction expectations
