How We Hire
While some specifics may vary by location, brand, or role, here is how to start your path for a career at eBay.
Hiring process during COVID-19
This is an extraordinary time, with many of us experiencing changes in our personal lives – such as shutdowns, school closures, and concerns about the health and safety of loved ones. At eBay, our focus is the safety and well-being of our employees – both current and prospective – as well as our customers and communities. Learn more about how we're adapting our hiring processes during this time, and what that means for you as a job candidate.
All interviews are being conducted online with videoconferencing tools. Your recruiter will fill you in on all the details ahead of any interviews. Most people you interview with will also be working from home. We’re a human company and we’re all doing our best to adapt. We’re getting to know our colleagues’ kids, pets, and other family members along the way – and we’re happy to meet yours too.
Prepare as you normally would, but make sure that you have the right tools in place well in advance of your interview. If you have any special needs, our recruitment team is here to help accommodate.
Finding the right position
Start by searching for a position that matches your skills, qualifications, and interests. Once something sparks your interest and experience, click “Apply to job” and follow the login and submission instructions. If you do not already have an account, you can create one as part of this process. Submit your information for review.
Our Find Jobs by Category section is a good place to start. It provides an overview of job functions and should help you find the right match.
Are all eBay job opportunities including internships and graduate opportunities listed on careers.ebayinc.com?
Yes. All jobs, including student, internships, and entry level positions are listed on our careers website. New jobs are posted daily, so come back often.

Applying for a position
Yes, please be prepared to provide complete information during the application process as well as making an electronic copy of your resume accessible. A PDF or Word document is fine. You will have the opportunity to upload it directly from your computer or upload it from certain third party providers (such as LinkedIn and Dropbox). If you like, you can also type or paste your resume into the appropriate section.
Some are required and some are optional, but it is a good idea to answer as many questions as you can. The more information you give us, the easier it is for our hiring team to learn about your unique qualifications.
If you need to change the email linked to your account, we can help you. Simply Contact Us. However, you can access the password recovery link on the login page when you’re applying to a specific job. On the login page select the "forgot password" link. Enter the email associated with your eBay Careers account and answer the security questions. Once you correctly answer the security questions, you will be able to reset your password. You can only reset your password once every 24 hours.
No, you must create a profile on our Careers site to apply for a role. This allows you to include all the required information in your application. Email, fax, or paper copies of your resume or CV will not be accepted as an application.
Yes, but if you begin the interview process for a role, please inform the recruitment team that you have submitted more than one application.
Yes, you can apply for a job that is available in another country but, prior to employment, you will be required to have legal work authorization and follow the local visa requirements.
If I do not have a work authorization visa for the country I am applying to, does eBay provide sponsorship for specific roles?
Yes, in certain circumstances and for specific roles, eBay may, at their discretion and working within local immigration requirements, sponsor individuals to work in different countries.
After submitting an application
Once you have submitted your application, it will be reviewed by our talent acquisition team. If you are a good fit for the position (or another open position), a recruiter may contact you to discuss your application and the role.
Be prepared to discuss your work history, qualifications, and compensation requirements after submitting your application. You should also learn as much as you can about eBay. Current information can be found on this website.
There is no need to follow up after applying for a job online and submitting your profile. If your skills and experience appear to match an open position, we may contact you to discuss your qualifications.
Due to the high volume of resumes we receive, we cannot contact each person who submits their resume for consideration. If you are not selected to move forward in the process, your resume will remain in our database.
If I need to update my profile information (such as email address) do I have to create a new account?
If you need to change the email linked to your account, we can help you. Simply Contact Us. All your other profile information, like your address, work history, and education, can be changed in the flow while you’re applying for a job. Please do not create multiple login accounts as it could delay your application.
Please go to eBay's Privacy Center and submit a request under “Employment Related Questions” to have your personal information deleted.
