Launched in November 2008 in Chicago, Groupon is the daily-deal site offering unbeatable deals on the best stuff to do, eat, see, and buy in cities worldwide. Groupon uses collective-buying power to extend unmatched prices and provide significant benefits to both businesses and consumers. We use other types of power to fuel our cars and light our offices.
Outside account executives combine related experience in local-merchant advertising with respective connections to build partnerships for Groupon. They ally with restaurants, theaters, spas, and everything in between, negotiating unbeatable offers on behalf of our subscribers. We hire connected, innovative, and industry-relevant sales professionals. Experience with online sales, advertising, and social media are beneficial to an account executive’s success and fit within our team.
