Connecting with our customers is at the heart of everything we do. Can you lead the charge?

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.

Groupon Goods, the retail arm of our business, is a one-stop shop for every day, brand-name essentials and unexpected, one-

of-a-kind finds. For our merchants, this means massive exposure, smart promotion, and reliable fulfillment. For our customers, this means phenomenal deals on a variety of products ranging from electronics to clothing, home goods to beauty.

We are seeking a retail-savvy Merchandiser to fuel the growth of Groupon Goods, our online retail arm dedicated to featuring great deals on great products.

To get airspace on Groupon Goods, a product has to be cool enough to share and innovative enough to inspire.

This Merchandiser will support the Buying team in sourcing and procuring products that we share with subscribers every day and in turn provide a customisable way for brands to connect with a potentially new customer base.

To succeed as a Merchandiser, you must be analytical, understand product portfolios and be results driven with the ability to build relationships and communicate to a large team of diverse individuals.

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 passionate about helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

You'll spend time on the following :

  • Work closely with international buying team to provide merchandising and product strategy and help identifying correct products to source for the goods platform.
  • Source and solidify top-tier-brands wanted lists for the buying team to target
  • Research product landscape to keep current with industry trends and pricing dynamics in the consumer-product-goods space
  • Identifying market trends and spotting opportunities
  • Perform daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly sales analysis with the buying team.
  • Provide plans for sales and inventory
  • Provide brand pricing strategy
  • Managing inventory and forecast quantity to purchase.
  • Optimizing stock levels
  • We're excited about you if you have :

  • An understanding of multi brand retailing.
  • An understanding of global retailing and e-commerce
  • A self-starter who does not need to be micro managed.
  • Excellent knowledge of Excel (Vlookups, pivot tables etc.)
  • Bachelor's Degree
  • Well organised and able to prioritise workload.
  • Process driven - both in working style and ability to propose new processes.
  • Flexible - being prepared to get involved in other areas of the business that might not necessarily be deemed a merchandising function.
  • Excellent communications skills - verbally and written.
  • Examples of having met weekly deadlines with moving targets
  • Strong analytical & numerical skills
  • Knowledge of Google Analytics
  • Evidence of maintaining focus in a whirlwind of change
  • 2+ years working experience
