Ready to have a direct impact on the financial success of a public company?

You're a sharp and savvy finance professional, so why not guide an entire team or department on their financial success? At Groupon, you have the chance to learn a business group from the bottom up, so you never have to wonder about whether or not your work matters.

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.

Global Finance is a conglomeration of number-savvy professionals who encompass multiple teams, ensuring everything from our month-

end close processes to our P&L ownership and SG&A are on point. You will play a meaningful role in the global forecasting and planning process.

Within our FP&A group, we act as internal consultants with VP-level business leaders across the organization to understand the ins and outs of a specific business unit.

Through focusing on two main areas controllership and business support we ensure the success of the business while maximizing profit for each group they work with.

You will have the opportunity to be integrated within a business unit, providing valuable financial insight and recommendations to your team.

This is a hands-on opportunity to develop a deep understanding of our business, providing you with a unique insight into how our company operates.

As Senior Manager for International FP&A, you will lead a team responsible for the region’s financial and business planning.

This team is a small, high performance unit that sits at the intersection of Finance and Business Operations, closely interacts with regional leaders and influences country decisions.

Based in London, you will collaborate with the regional Commercial Finance and Accounting teams, the International CFO, and the broader Global FP&A team based in our Chicago headquarters.

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?
