The Finance Future Program at eBay is an incredible opportunity in that not only does the rotational aspect allow you to gain a significant breadth of experience in different areas of the business, but the program is surprisingly intimate. Even as a recent college graduate, in FFP, you can make a substantial impact and work directly with senior leaders. Furthermore, the company’s values, culture, and people overall make it a great place to work. It’s really an exciting time to work for eBay – especially in FFP.

I joined eBay and the Finance Futures Program in August 2021. What made me want to work at eBay was the ability to work for a Fortune 500 company that in many ways feels like a startup. It was really enticing to me that at eBay you can make an impact on day 1, even as a recent college graduate.

In May of 2022, I completed my first rotation on the Payments Finance Team. In this role, I helped manage spend and headcount for the overall Payments Organization. I also collaborated with my team on various special projects. All of which contributed towards improving the customer experience and ensuring our product continues to run smoothly. Surprisingly, on the Payments Finance team, a lot of what I did in my day-to-day didn’t have much to do with typical financial analysis, but more working cross-functionally with individual stakeholders to meet a common goal.

I’m currently on my second rotation with Core Product and Technology. In this role, I help out in many different areas including engineering spend and headcount management, product analytics, and capital expenditure planning. I’m excited to learn as much as I can and continue to grow in this new role.

My advice to anyone who has the opportunity to join a program like the Finance Futures Program is to get involved in a leadership role at your school or in your community. FFP is very hands-on, and often, FFPs are expected to take charge and lead important projects. Having leadership experience is critical.

In support of communities outside of eBay, I’m currently working with the Texas Tech Finance Association to help students find their dream job(s) and/or make their way into working in Silicon Valley. This involves occasional speaking engagements and individual mentoring. I also strive to donate to causes I’m passionate about through the eBay Foundation.

eBay is fearlessly inclusive. It builds a truly equitable place for the world to work, buy and sell.

I joined eBay in 2017. What made me want to work at eBay was the people and culture. I believe this is what sets eBay apart from other companies. Additionally, working for one of the best-known brands in the world, with a truly global presence, ads complexity and dynamism to everyday tasks, keeping the work always interesting.

How I got to eBay was while I was studying for my master’s degree, I was a Teaching Assistant for a class of Corporate Finance at University of Lausanne in Switzerland. From there, I worked as an intern in the financial sector doing Equity Research. It has been five years since I joined eBay, and before starting the Finance Leadership Development Program (FLDP), I have worked in Business Performance roles for Europe and Global Markets.

As of now I have completed 1 rotation as part of the Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) team in Germany where I worked on Spend Management and Special Pricing Contracts. I’m currently in my second rotation with the Investor Relations Team in San Jose, CA. While the internal and external views on eBay are aligned, two different sets of skills are needed to manage internal and external expectations. I remain curious to discover the next two rotations for the remainder of the FLDP and to meet, work, and learn from other teams.

What made me want to join the FLDP was the rare opportunity to accelerate personal and professional growth, while learning different roles in the finance organization. It expands your network, knowledge and skill set, intangibles that will remain with you and can be leveraged in your future roles. My favorite aspect of the FLDP is the professional training on leadership received along the program is quite powerful. Additionally, I am inspired by the leadership style of the leaders I had the chance to meet and work with across the organization during the rotations.

If you have an opportunity to join a program like the FLDP I would advise that it is an unparalleled opportunity for your career growth. I would not overthink this option: if presented to you, take it. Once enrolled in the program, you will have the resources and meet the right persons to help you navigate successfully the four rotations. You just need the courage to start, and as per Newton’s Laws of Motion, a body in motion remains in motion!

What I think is unique about and What sets eBay apart in the e-commerce industry is the level of trust it enables between buyers and sellers, while operating at scale. The unique, rare inventory is what makes buyers come back. What makes investors betting on eBay is the leadership expertise to preserve the high-profit-margin business model. And finally, from an employee perspective, eBay has a truly inclusive and empowering working culture, supporting individuals to deliver results that matter.

The possibilities to learn, grow, and make a difference at eBay are endless.

What I enjoy about eBay is the people. Everyone is incredibly collaborative, but more importantly, everyone is focused on doing what is right for the customer. The diverse experiences and amazing talent really help to shape the culture of eBay. What I think sets eBay apart from other online retail marketplaces is the sense of community eBay creates for buyers and sellers – such a delightful and authentic experience.

I have had an amazing career rotating around in different finance roles – enjoying the opportunities to learn and grow. When the opportunity popped up at eBay to help support Product and Tech, I jumped at the chance, and I joined eBay in March of 2021. I have always had my eye on working at eBay through the years given the reputation the high performing finance team, as well as the mission driven culture of eBay. Shortly after joining eBay, I was asked to help with Corp FP&A, in addition to helping support Product and Tech teams. I couldn’t have asked for a better onboarding experience! Working in Corp FP&A helped me learn so much about eBay – in a very accelerated timeline given we had earnings and board meeting to prep for, all with our new CFO Steve Priest. Now, I’m focused on partnering with our Product, Tech, and Growth teams – helping to drive more value for our customers and shareholders. I love working with the teams that help make the magic happen on the eBay platform for our buyers and sellers. Making sure the teams have the resources and help to execute on strategic initiatives and help them prioritize efforts where it’s most meaningful for our customers and shareholders. Something that may surprise people about my day-to-day is I spend a lot of time in 1:1s with many different people outside of my team. I love building relationships across the business, offering support and help wherever I can.
