Software engineers from new grads to architect level contributors
Over a billion items are for sale on eBay. Almost all of them are new-in-the-box and sold at fixed price. Additionally, eBay is still the best place to search for unique items at auction. We enable tens of millions of people to supplement their income, or go into business for themselves, with little or no capital investment. We are democratizing capitalism. While we certainly care about our (very healthy) revenue, we also care about the impact we have on the people whose lives we touch.
We are shifting from a listing-based approach to a product semantic. This major initiative at eBay entails changes across our entire technology stack, from massive data stores to individual user experiences. With a combination of traditional programming and machine learning, we advise sellers on the most effective pricing, and buyers on the least cost. We help sellers post items in less time with greater accuracy and more information. We help buyers find what they want based on the most general or the most carefully directed searches. We show competing products, accessories, and the best deals for similar products. Everything we do is gradually being done better because it is increasingly based on structured product data instead of unstructured listings. The computer science at eBay creates one of the world's largest data sets, operates at one of the highest transaction rates, and is one of the world's most highly scaled uses of machine learning.
I am hiring software engineers at all levels. This is literally a once in a career type of opportunity to work on the hottest technology in a sane environment with competitive compensation. eBay is a Fortune 500 company that still cares about people. Help transform the perception and the reality of what we do, as we put business ownership in the hands of ordinary people, and help people all over the world shop for great deals on commodity and unique items.
