About Groupon

Groupon provides a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime.

Job Description

Expand your QA tool set whilst being a part of a team that builds things that help local businesses around the world thrive.

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.

Are you a passionate, energetic and technology enthusiast eager to work at a rapid pace with the flexibility to work across our suite of technologies? Are you a problem solver; someone who enjoys debugging code, resolving issues, and creating solutions for common problems? Do you get a little obsessed with the details?

We are looking for a Software Test Engineer to test and launch the next generation of features, helping us realize our vision to provide a fast, compelling and personalized experience that makes it easy for customers to navigate Groupon’s mobile applications. We want to help them discover a variety of offerings and allow them to score great deals in a frictionless manner.

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?

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You’ll be the test owner for upcoming mobile features working as part of Agile Sprint teams

  • You’ll strategize, plan, document and execute testing for upcoming mobile features

  • You’ll help triage, prioritize and assign incoming feedback from our internal Catfood (Beta) Apps

  • You’ll coordinate with product managers to clarify requirements and prioritize bugs

  • You’ll be working closely with developers on sprint teams to deliver the features in timely manner

  • You’ll work across team boundaries, working with back-end and front-end teams to execute test plans and debug issues

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • BS or MS in Computer Sciences or related fields with 2+ years of relevant QA experience or 5+ years of relevant industry experience

  • Experience testing applications and/or sites that utilize REST services

  • Experience working in an Agile environment

  • Good communication and collaboration skills

  • Great problem solving skills and an ability to find alternative ways of doing things

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: We want to continue to deliver a 5-star rated experience with our apps

  • 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 always expanding the scope of our responsibility and stepping up to help address gaps. You’ll love being able to test multiple things and not be restricted to a single area.

  • Pragmatic: We do things quickly to learn what our customers desire. You know when it’s appropriate to diverge from established processes in order to ‘just get it done’, but without sacrificing the quality bar.

  • Collaborative: Getting things done at Groupon often involves reaching out across team boundaries to unblock or move things forward. You’re encouraged to do so and should not feel restricted to following the standard communication channels through management.
