The worldwide eBay marketplace permanently features more than 800 million items from private and commercial sellers. With mobile apps now available in 190+ countries, eBay provides easy access to merchandise from both local resellers and vendors around the world. Through industry-specific shopping worlds such as eBay Fashion and eBay Motors, eBay creates individually tailored shopping experiences for individual categories. Sellers can use eBay to offer their items to consumers around the world through a variety of channels both online and mobile.

eBays DE Product Development team is based in Dreilinden (Berlin) and is part of the global Core Product and Technology team. We enable commerce at scale, and have massive customer impact. Whilst doing all this, we are on a mission to improve eBay technology, drive agile adoption and demonstrate customer-centric development targeted towards our customers in Germany. While focused on local market needs we also chip in to eBays global product and technology portfolio. To do this, we improve existing experiences, build or extend core products and experiment with new innovations to make the lives of eBay customers better.

We are continually aspiring for the highest quality, and work in small focused teams following bits of Scrum, bits of Kanban, with a healthy dose of Extreme Programming (p.s. these aren't buzzwords, we mean it when we say we do this stuff).

Our cross-functional teams have Product Management, all aspects of Product Development (including DevOps and Test), and UX all working together every day. We are collocated with eBay Germanys business teams and closely interact with our German customers and other eBay teams on a daily basis.

Working at eBay is a rewarding, challenging and inspiring experience.
