Want to use your finance and analytical skills to help local businesses around the world thrive?

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 encourages innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. Are you ready to take more ownership of your career? If so, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

The Senior Financial Analyst will play an integral role in the global forecasting, planning, and reporting process. You will be expected to produce timely, accurate reporting and customized financial analysis to support management decisions. You'll be a key member on the Global FP&A team based in our Chicago headquarters. Additionally, this role will provide ad-hoc analysis as needed for senior financial leadership. To be successful in this role, you should have strong analytical skills, an interest in financial data systems and processes along with a desire for consistent personal development. Willingness to dive in head first while improving key technical skills and learning new systems is a must.

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 substantial impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and passionate about helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

What you'll be doing:- Assist in the preparation and consolidation as part of the global FP&A cycle -- including budgeting & forecasting, variance reviews, etc.

Community matters to us on an internal, local and global scale—it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.
