Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfil our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses. We connect 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.

Our International Customer Marketing Team is working on some of the most exciting innovations within the company, enabling every aspect of the customer experience to focus on attracting and engaging customers, and maximizing lifetime value at every stage of their journey. We are seeking a Customer Marketing champion to join our Long-term Customer Marketing Programs Team. The goal of the Long-Term Program Manager is to increase our number of customers and their frequency of purchase with us by initiating automated lifecycle marketing campaigns which can generate customer transactions in the long-term, i.e. with results over a longer period of time.

The Lifecycle Program Manager will work with the wider International Customer Marketing Team to drive marketing initiatives and programmes which will contribute to these goals across the EMEA and APAC businesses.

Reporting to the Lifecycle Program Lead, you will work in a highly collaborative environment with Marketing and Business stakeholders throughout the International business.

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?

- Build and deliver solutions that exceed internal and external customer expectations
