Launched the Merchant Self Service Deal Builder tool 🎉

It's a responsive Single Page Backbone.js App built on top of the Thorax.js extensions. Naturally, this involves taking advantage of all the greatest and latest tech: HTML5, CSS3 via Stylus, Javascript via CoffeeScript, Handlebars, node.js.

It turns out complex forms are tricky to build, but our team has been fantastic in breaking it all down to tackle each step, while continually having new users go through the flow to give us real time feedback.

Groupon expanded the number of ways that the company works with merchants by launching Deal Builder, a convenient, 24/7 self-service option for local businesses to build their own Groupon deal. The new Deal Builder platform, which lives on GrouponWorks.com, guides merchants through a step-by-step process and enables them to choose from a series of popular deal templates to construct a promotion that best meets the needs of their business.
