Groupon is a global leader in local commerce, offering consumers incredible deals on the best stuff to eat, see, do, and buy in over 47 countries. Naturally, when it came to India – a country on the constant lookout for ‘paisa vasool’ bargains – Groupon was an unmitigated success (and there goes modesty, straight out of the window).
Groupon India is now 3 years old and like any 3-year-old, we’re full of energy and easily excited. Which means working at Groupon is like a roller coaster ride – it’s fast-paced, fun and sometimes makes you feel wobbly in the stomach.
Fun @ Groupon
Think casual Fridays are fun? Bahahaha, you deprived soul you.
At Groupon, fun takes all kinds of bizarre turns. Whether it’s odd events (read Twin Day, Halloween Parties, Fashion Disaster, Retro Day), unexpected cake, random photo shoots (if you own a DSLR, you are our new best friend), stand-up comedy one-offs, well, you get the gist. Oh, and we take a very out- of-the-box approach to work. In this case, the box being the office…Because we have tons of team outings, get-togethers and trips. And this is not including the annual offsite where employees from all over the country come together for a weekend of activities, talent shows, dancing, awards, discussions and much more.
Still think wearing a T-shirt to work on one day of the week is fun?
Culture @ Groupon
Imagine being surrounded all day by street-smart, confident and quirky people. Even if you’re not standing on the sets of ‘How I Met Your Mother’. That’s the Groupon office in a nutshell. It’s a place where formality dies a slow death, much like Amrita Rao’s career. (Seriously, the last time a Groupon employee called someone Sir, s/he was probably standing in front of a professor explaining the doodle on the note they were passing in class.)
It’s also a place where people like to build new stuff (not necessarily out of Lego) and believe in odd things – like there’s something new to be learned every day and that ideas can come from anywhere. Honestly, we love exchanging ideas and everyone has an ‘open-door’ policy, whether it’s your reporting manager or the friendly CEO next door.
Actually, that was a lie – we don’t have an open-door policy. We don’t even have doors. We’re cool like that.

? You are so data driven, you stalk people online before agreeing to a blind date with them.
?? You love fast-paced work environments. Like emergency wards. Only, you know, without people dying and stuff.
Tips from a Groupon Veteran:
? Everyone needs a friend to stay by their side through late nights. Make coffee yours.
? That report you stayed up all night preparing? There’s a good chance it’s going to be scrapped –
we love reinventing and soon you will too (insert evil laugh here).
? We believe in casual dressing. But just to be clear, casual doesn’t include boxers, feathers, oh
god, we’re giving you ideas!!!
? It may be a bit difficult separating your professional life from your personal life – because
at Groupon, it’s like working with family. But in a good way.
So..if you are up for the challenge…
then jump aboard and we can promise you an exhilarating ride!
