A major steal for Groupon: after roughly 12 years at Amazon, Jason Child is joining the red hot social commerce startup as chief financial officer.

Child was most recently Vice President of Finance for Amazon.com’s $14 billion International business.

Previously, Jason held key finance leadership roles for Amazon in Germany and Japan, also serving in Investor Relations, Technology, Marketing and as Worldwide Corporate Controller. Prior to Amazon, he spent more than seven years at Arthur Andersen where he was a CPA and Consulting Manager.

Here’s Child’s comment on his move:

“Groupon is one of the most amazing businesses I have ever seen. I am thrilled to join a great team that is attacking one of the biggest opportunities in e-commerce today.â€

Child and his family have relocated from Seattle to Chicago, where Groupon’s headquarters are based.
