Woot is, of course, the original daily deals site, founded in 2004.

Today, we offer multiple daily deals and other short-term sales across 11 different categories, plus special site-wide events like Woot-Offs and other shenanigans.

Interested in working in an innovative, high-impact business role with the opportunity to flex both your analytical and strategic muscles?
