Software Development Engineer- SEO Engineering

Description

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. Groupon helps local businesses grow and strengthen customer relationships––resulting in strong, vibrant communities. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success.

The Groupon SEO Engineering Team is looking for a strong software engineer who has the right combination of business & engineering skills, who can design and develop real time systems and who can help understand and apply data based insights to seo operations. This engineer will support and evolve the design, implementation, and operational support of internal systems that span business side and engineering departments.

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?

Our development ecosystem:

  • Languages: Java

  • Node/Express JS

  • MySQL/PostgreSQL

  • REST/JSON

  • AWS

  • GitHub / JIRA

  • You will develop compliance applications for the Groupon microservice ecosystem

  • You will collaborate with teams in other organizations to ensure that required business features and compliance rules are implemented effectively

  • Build service artifacts, plan deployment, coordinate timeline and tasks with project management and teams

  • Improve service stability by identifying critical service specific metrics, setting meaningful alerting thresholds, and automating alerting responses

  • Create and maintain documentation for your projects

  • Mentor junior staff

  • Drive the discussion and decisions of technical topics related to the team

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • BS, MS or PhD in Computer Sciences or related fields with 7+ years in software development

  • Solid knowledge with relational databases

  • You should have experience developing and supporting web applications and with supporting and troubleshooting internal and external requests / bug report in transactional environment

  • Good communication and collaboration skills

We value engineers who are:

  • Customer-focused: We believe that doing what’s right for the customer is ultimately what will drive our business forward.

  • Obsessed with quality: Your production code just works & scales linearly

  • Team players. You believe that more can be achieved together. You listen to feedback and also provide supportive feedback to help others grow/improve.

  • Fast learners: We are willing to disrupt our existing business to trial new products and solutions. You love learning how to use new technologies and then rapidly apply them to new problems.

  • Pragmatic: We do things quickly to learn what our customers desire. You know when it’s appropriate to take shortcuts that don’t sacrifice quality or maintainability.

  • Owners: Engineers at Groupon know how to positively impact the business.
