Are you a champion for the customer? Are you passionate about understanding customers’ behavior and what they need to succeed?
Culturally, we believe that great people working together make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward.
Community matters to us; it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We power communities by connecting local merchants to millions of consumers to help them grow their businesses and to make life less boring for consumers.
Groupon is the perfect hybrid between the feel and impact opportunity of a startup, with the assets of a public company.
The Design Union is a team of talented Product Designers, UX Researchers, and UX Content Strategists at Groupon who are striving to revolutionize local commerce by impacting the experience of customers through our creativity and real passion for solid UX design.
Our multidisciplinary team focuses on innovating both consumer and merchant sides of product initiatives. We drive the end-to-end product design for both customers and merchants including defining the problem rooted from customer insights, brainstorming on the product vision, crafting and validating workflows, interactions, and visualizations.
