Description

Are you an inspiring leader? Are you passionate about helping teams make a bigger impact?

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 Sales Transformation team is composed of passionate people who are eager to make an impact at Groupon. We support one another’s initiatives in a way that’s productive and encouraging. We enjoy being challenged and hold our collaborators to the same standards. We push each other to grow as a team and individually; and most importantly we strive to do the right thing every single day.

As a Project Manager on our Sales Transformation team, you’ll serve as a motivated and inspiring leader while focusing primarily on tools and processes. Your ultimate goal is to support projects, tooling and operational processes that improve efficiency and automation for sales reps’ day to day job functions. You’ll apply sound business judgment, use your premier strategy & operations chops, use data driven insights to deliver strategic plans, and use your skills to directly and indirectly influence partners in order to make things happen.

Project Managers provide the structure and support the overall vision for assigned projects and work streams. They are responsible for overseeing and directing multiple projects at a time or a singular, large scale or highly complex project, and ensuring that these projects are delivered in a timely manner while meeting or exceeding expectations. Within this role the Project Manager will interface heavily with their Sales Operations counterparts across Communications, Analytics, Lead Management and Training. They have direct connection and will collaborate with Sales leadership at all levels along with other non Sales disciplines across Groupon including: marketing, product, finance, legal, engineering, and customer service.

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:
