Today, Groupon is announcing that it is acquiring Obtiva (www.obtiva.com) the largest Ruby on Rails software development firm in Chicago.
We’ve been working side-by-side with our Obtiva colleagues since way back in 2009, when Groupon had a handful of engineers. Today, many of our 600W development teams have Obtivians on them (and several are led by Obtivians.) We decided to stop living in sin and tie the knot.
We’re constantly impressed by how capable Obtiva developers are and we’re really looking forward to expanding the team. If you’re interested in a job in Engineering at Groupon (or a host of other departments, including Housewares and Linens) check out the open positions here.
If you’d like to send a congratulatory gift to the Obtiva team, they’re registered at Crate & Barrel and Radio Shack.
