Center to eBay’s business model is a circular economy that helps eliminate waste, reduce carbon emissions, and support small business and individuals seeking economic expansion. It is beyond rewarding to work for a company with such strong core values that you can easily see working every day.

I first started at eBay in 2019 through an internship. I saw how the Finance leadership team clearly cares about the involvement and exposure of the Finance Future Program (FFP) members. They facilitate a culture that nurtures learning and growth. I could confidently join the FFP in August of 2020 with trust that my career development in technical, leadership, and analytical skills would expand. The program allows me the opportunity to explore different avenues of finance while connecting me to mentors with vested interest in my professional advancement.

I am wrapping up my first rotation in Treasury and heading to Corporate FP&A next! In Treasury, I have been able to be a part of maintaining our disciplined capital allocation policy which aims to preserve financial flexibility and our BBB+ credit rating. Projects that I’ve been a part of include restarting our commercial paper program, tendering some of our 2022 debt maturities, the marketing materials for our upcoming bond issuance, managing and maintaining the OI&E month end process, engaging with various banks to onboard entities for our Payments 2.0 initiative, and handling the share buyback program. As a public company, working on eBay’s capital structure has allowed me to better understand how we deliver value back to the shareholders and how our financing decisions are pertinent to investors. It has been a fun and exciting rotation where I have learned a lot!

I would advise anyone presented with an opportunity like the FFP to GO FOR IT! It is a special opportunity to work for a company that ignites positive change and delivers a product that truly props up small business and individuals. Furthermore, core to eBay’s business model is sustainability. It is motivating knowing that the better we are at our job, the better experience we can deliver to the platform, resulting in a greater impact for millions of people and the earth. Not only is the company’s mission impelling, but it is great working for a company that truly cares about the growth and development of its people. Being a part of the FFP, you are presented with extensive learning opportunities and chances to truly explore your various interests in finance.

I really enjoy working at eBay because of the supportive nature of the company culture. You genuinely feel that all peers and superiors are looking for ways to propel you forward to best benefit your career development and the longevity of the company.

At eBay you will work with great teams and leaders. Meanwhile, there are lots of opportunities for you to grow.

I joined eBay in 2012 and have worked in several roles including, data analyst, product manager for the Platform Engineering team, business systems analyst for eBay Classifieds Group (eCG) and have recently joined the Analytics Development Leadership Program (ALDP) in August of 2020 which provides me the opportunity to explore the potential in myself as well as pursue career growth.

Having just completed by first rotation I would recommend a program like this to anyone who has been given the chance. If you are eager to learn and not afraid to take a risk, the ALDP or similar program is a great opportunity. It allows you to try different roles within Analytics and allows you to participate in multiple projects to help expand your skills and find new strengths. My favorite aspect of the ALDP is the opportunity to work in different teams and learn different aspects of eBay’s business. It also gives me the chance to build a network of various colleagues at different levels throughout eBay. Stepping into an analytics role brings me closer to the business. I get to help answer business questions and provide actionable insights, whereas my previous role was to build a data foundation to support the reporting and analytics.

In my first rotation, I worked with the AU Analytics team which was a wonderful experience. My work can be divided into two areas: payment operations and product analytics. In payment operation I maintained an analytical framework to identify target sellers so we can onboard them in our Payments 2.0 program. On the other side of my project, product analytics, I participated in several analytics projects like range parity and price comparison which supports our various marketing activities like promotions, banner ads, etc.

I enjoy being a part of the eBay community. It allows me to have a good work-life balance. The people at eBay provide a good teamwork environment. eBay has also provided me great growth opportunities for my career.

My heart has always been drawn to eBay. I love the motto “people are basically good” and I’m proud to work for a company that enables the success of all buyers and sellers. It’s refreshing and meaningful to be in an environment of inclusivity and support.

San Jose, CA

I first joined eBay in 2011 then again in 2017, go boomerangs! In my current role as Head of Internal Audit and Chief Audit Executive (CAE) I work on protecting eBay by preventing big problems, and overall making eBay better! I enjoy being involved in the many different areas of the business and I love that I never stop learning. Something that surprises many people about my day-to-day is that my team and I are here to help the business succeed in driving better business outcomes. We get to support all areas of eBay: regions, functions, and corporate, too! We spend a lot of our time getting to know all facets of eBay’s business.

— Julie S., Head of Internal Audit and Chief Audit Executive (CAE)

I have always had a desire to do something more meaningful, such as volunteering or working at a non-profit versus just being part of a company where the only objective was to make money. eBay has a purpose that speaks to me; helping connect buyers and sellers. We enable other businesses to succeed; we provide the tools and technology to those that need it; we don’t compete with our buyers and sellers. What a great opportunity to work in a company with a compelling purpose.

I also love that eBay can enable the people who need it most; the underserved who may not have the education, the technology, the tools or the capital, the small business that is just getting up and running, and of course more recently, any business impacted by COVID. We enable everyone to succeed; who wouldn’t want to work here?

Lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how amazing the people are here. When I first interviewed at eBay, I connected with every single person on the interview panel. I knew that wasn’t the norm, and even though I wasn’t even looking for a change at the time, I knew I couldn’t ignore something so compelling. The people here are different, in the best way possible. These are a few of the many factors of what made me want to work at eBay.

In my Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) capacity, I work with leaders of eBay and their teams to identify, manage and monitor the top risk areas and help to ensure line management and the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) are aware of risks and issues so that appropriate resourcing decisions are made. In the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) capacity, I get to dig deeper into certain financial processes and supporting systems to provide management and our external investors assurance that our financial statements are materially correct. In the Internal Audit (IA) capacity, I get to look at other risk areas, processes, systems, and now regulatory areas to assure management and the Board things are working appropriately, advise on better or more efficient ways of working, and my favorite, anticipate if changes are coming that eBay needs to be ready for. Through these internal reviews, my team and I may identify gaps in key areas or even a regulator focus that we need to be ready for. We collaborate with our stakeholders to make eBay a better place!

Not only do I get to cover the most important areas to the eBay Board, eBay management and external investors, personally, I learn a ton about our business and feel great that I can contribute to ensuring eBay meets its customer, operational, financial and regulatory goals.

On a personal side, I enjoy being an eBay shopper! I love the huge variety of items I can find on our marketplace. I find everything from basics to unique, personalized items. I purchase items for various uses, from RV camper supplies to beauty products to gardening items. I enjoy that eBay offers a mix of stores where I can find all the weird combinations of whatever it is, I am looking for at any given time. This is what sets eBay apart from any other marketplace.
