Ready to have a direct impact on the financial success of a public company?

Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. 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.

This Senior Financial Analyst on the Anaplan Center of Excellence team, you will support our Commercial Finance team, which is a group of number-savvy professionals that partner with the business team to unlock all of their potential. You will play a meaningful role in supporting our North America Sales organization, developing and implementing our incentive programs in Anaplan. You will manage the automation of all our compensation plans, develop performance dashboards, and communicate with Sales leadership to drive results, ensuring the best ROI.  The Anaplan Center of Excellence (CoE) team brings best practice in software development that allows us to make data driven decisions.

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 great way to grow your career? Let's get into the details:

  • Perform data management tasks, pull data from multiple sources, and create integrations to bring the data automatically into Anaplan leveraging ETL tools like Snaplogic

  • Collaborate with other Anaplan CoE team members to comply with best build practices

  • Ad-hoc deep dives on pressing business issues and using Anaplan model builder expertise for solutions
