Let's Build Opportunity Together
At eBay, we seek the very best engineers to help us build more economic opportunity for everyone. We work on some of the world’s most complex, highly scalable systems – which connect buyers with sellers all across the globe. There’s a purpose to what we’re doing, and we’re very passionate about it. See what it’s like to be an engineer at eBay.
Learning at Scale
We not only create and open source powerful technology tools, but we also use cutting-edge technologies at scale in ways that few other companies can match. For example, eBay leverages the OpenStack cloud computing platform and the Apache Hadoop Big Data platform at enormous scale. Engineers at our company are constantly learning and sharing knowledge as they gain deep familiarity with many of the most in-demand technology tools and platforms.
Building At Ebay
Not only is eBay a global commerce leader with more than a billion items listed for sale, but our StubHub and Classifieds platforms have global reach as well. We continuously build solutions that help us organize, curate and present inventory in the most efficient ways. In the process, we create both powerful and patented technology tools and open source tools. As just one example, eBay contributed its powerful Kylin data-centric application to the Apache Software Foundation just last year. We’re looking for builders, inventors and creators who can help us navigate the rapidly changing landscape of commerce. Working with our platform, our inventors will gain tested and hardened skills with today’s cutting-edge technology platforms.
Technology is revolutionizing every aspect of our lives, transforming how we do business, support our communities and find the products we need. At eBay, we innovate constantly to create economic opportunities by connecting a vibrant global community of people, organizations and merchants, anytime, anywhere. We stand at the forefront of omni-channel commerce innovation, pioneering personalized and seamless experiences that connect buyers and sellers across borders. We call this Connected Commerce, and our engineers and inventors drive this effort. Through their innovation, we will create the next generation of commerce.
