Sales is an intense job and Groupon trains some of the best. How would you like to lead a few dozen?
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.
We know sales is the backbone of business - so why sell things that don't matter? Our Local teams focus on building partnerships with new Groupon merchants.
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 manager of our Local business, you'll be responsible for a large sales team focusing on the overall success of the sales team, as well as developing and executing on the overarching category strategy.
You will report directly to our Country Manager and will collaborate with corporate leadership to build an outstanding sales management team and posse of high-
performing inside sales professionals.
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.
