感谢大家近一段时间的申请与关注, 我们已经在申请者中确定了几名远程雇员。我们还有职位等待诸位继续申请。下面是它们的英文描述。如果有兴趣,请发送简历至 bzhang@groupon.com。请注明你申请哪一个职位。


Back End Engineer

We are looking for experienced backend engineers with a passion for building large-scale systems that power the next generation of local-commerce.

As an engineer on the Breadcrumb by Groupon team, you will be working on a fast-paced startup-like team with fellow entrepreneurial developers who know how to ship. We are a continuous deployment shop, the code you land today will be in production tomorrow, and we have built an agile culture of testing and code-review to make that possible… even for highly-available, mission critical systems like payment processing.

You’ll be working on systems that move around millions of dollars, and power tens of thousands of local merchants. The next time you eat lunch at a restaurant, or shop at a local store, your swipe could be travelling over the pipes that you built.

Desired Experience and Qualities:

  • BS or MS in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • Track record of building cool, at-scale web applications
  • Experience in at least one compiled language (C, Java) and one dynamic scripting language (e.g. Ruby, Python, Perl)
  • Strong familiarity with SQL database programming and performance
  • Excellent proficiency with *NIX development environments
  • Excellent understanding of how internet and Web technologies work

Front End Engineer

We’re looking for great front-end developers to hack on a variety of products aimed at making merchants’ lives easier and happier. We work in small, independent and agile teams, and collaborate with product designers to implement stuff quickly. We are looking for people that can have an immediate impact, so experienced front-end engineers are preferred, but anybody with experience working on user interfaces and a passion for detail are encouraged to apply.

There are not a lot of boundaries here, so expect to make a big impact. The code we check in today is running in production by tomorrow. So we need people that will take pride in the quality of their code and take it personally when there’s a bug that prevented one of our merchants from getting their job done.

The kind of stuff you’ll be doing:

  • Implement new features for all apps we offer to Groupon merchants – interesting stuff ranging from reinventing payments processing and point of sale to finding insights from data that help merchants run their business more efficiently
  • Collaborate with product designers to make sure all user interactions are well-designed and implemented correctly
  • Fix bugs as they are found. Deploy new code without waiting
  • Test features across all major browsers
  • Identify and fix performance issues

The kind of experience we expect:

  • 3 years or more of experience developing with HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • 3 years or more of developing with a server-side language (Ruby, Python, PHP, etc)
  • Has worked at all levels of the technology stack
  • Knows “The Good Parts” of JavaScript
  • Can structure client-side code in a way that makes sense to people other than themselves
  • Has a designer’s eye for typography, layout and colour
  • Obsessed with the user experience and design with the user’s goals in mind, carefully considering all possible complications
  • Has an opinion of what parts of HTML5 and CSS3 should really be used
  • When your jQuery data grid plugin goes wonky, you think, “I’ll just fix the plugin and submit a patch.”
  • Can code a 960 grid in their sleep
  • Obsessive about quality
  • Ruby on Rails experience a strong plus
  • Open source experience a plus

Dev-Op Engineer

As a production operations engineer, you bring solid systems experience to a technical operations team that is building the future of local commerce.

You will be taking our high-availability Payments & Point-of-Sale business into its growth stage. Our systems need to be running smoothly 24/7/365, and we need a devops generalist with scaling experience to make that happen.

On day one, you will be building out our ops infrastructure, adding monitoring, deployment tooling, provisioning servers, etc. Over time you will build & manage a sizeable team, because ops is a critical function for our business.

Desired Experience and Qualities:

  • Linux administration experience (ideally, 5+ years)
  • 2+ years working with a large installation
  • BS in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Experience providing support in a 24×7 environment; willing to be on-call for production escalations
  • Past work with system administration programming (such as with active monitoring), preferably with Ruby, Python, or Perl, without being strictly pinky-sworn to any one
  • Great interpersonal and communication skills
  • Eagerness to make the product better

Preferred, but Not Required:

  • Experience with production web server administration, ideally in a Ruby On Rails environment
  • Flexible and diverse skill sets, including MySQL, Linux tuning, security, networking gear, and various programming languages
  • A desire to learn

因为职位招聘帖发布后,一个月内只要有回复,就会被顶帖到招聘版靠前的位置,所以大可不必发布新帖,直接在老贴上修改就可以了。

建议:

  • 排版:这个排版效果不太理想,建议用 markdown 好好排版一下。
  • 翻译:Groupon 对应聘者要求很高,但是就我的经验,在社区里面中文格式的招聘信息往往受到的关注更多,所以建议直接翻译冲中文。
  • 背景:除了公司介绍和对职位的要求之外,能否介绍一下目前的团队,工作环境,以及对员工成长方面的考虑,这些都是加分项,容易帮助 Groupon 吸引到更多靠谱的人。另外就是可以着重强调公司提供的机会,吸引力,以及为什么要对这份工作机会说 YES
  • 口碑:Groupon 在美国算是体量很大的公司,Ruby China 是一个小论坛,论坛的发展成长需要你们这样的公司提供资源帮助和扶持,希望将来 Groupon 能够支持和赞助由 RubyChina 发起的活动和大会之类,这样可以帮助 Groupon 在国内 Ruby 这个小圈子里面建立更好的口碑声望。

👍 Groupon 可以考虑赞助 RubyConf China :)

@legendben 简单帮你排了一下,看看效果如何?是不是好了一点?
