We’re reinventing the traditional small business world by providing merchants with a suite of products and services, including customizable deal campaigns, credit card payments processing capabilities and point-of-sale solutions to help them attract more customers and run their operations more effectively.

By leveraging our global relationships and scale, we offer consumers incredible deals on the best stuff to eat, see, do, and buy in 48 countries. Shoppers discover the best a city has to offer with Groupon Local, enjoy vacations with Groupon Getaways, and find a curated selection of electronics, fashion, home furnishings and more with Groupon Goods. Employees make it possible.

We're looking for a front end developer that is passionate about the customer search experience. In this position, you will be a hands on senior developer that is able to take on complex front end tasks requiring in-depth knowledge of javascript and css. You will also be able to easily handle middle-tier API server work that is done primarily in Ruby.

The Search & Browse experience is a core part of the user experience and we're looking to take it to the next level. Your group will work on new initiatives that will power the search experience allowing customers to not only search for deals - but reservations, menus, and more. We're going to own the local search experience and we want you to be a part of that.

BS or MS in computer science or other technical degree preferred (Strong understanding of CS fundamentals)
5+ years of experience developing with HTML, CSS and JavaScript, CoffeeScript
5+ years developing with a server-side language (Ruby, Python, Java, etc)
An obsession on quality that borders on unhealthy
