Where youll be part of a work culture thats been genuinely committed to diversity and inclusion since its founding more than 20 years ago? Where you can just be yourself, do your best work, and have a meaningful impact? If so, wed love to talk to you.

Every day, millions of users sell and ship their wares using eBay. Our team supports this diverse community by building shipping products around the globe, helping individual sellers and small businesses to meet the growing expectations of online buyers. We are a product-oriented team who move fast and stay curious. Join us to make an impact on one of the worlds largest e-commerce websites.

What you bring:

  • Agile: Test-Driven Development, collaboration and continuous delivery are your preferred engineering practices? We take the best bits of Lean, Scrum and Kanban too.

  • Architecture: In a large scale distributed web-application, you choose the right tool for the job at hand. You know when to break something out into a new component and the best way to wire it in, when to go with the simplest fit into the current system and when to rethink the existing approach.

  • Experience: You are an experienced engineer, with several years working at a high level, confident working on a range of languages and frameworks and are happy to pick up new ones. You like working on established technology stacks as well as quickly changing platforms.

What we bring:

  • Rewarding technical challenges - fixing eCommerce delivery requires solving difficult technical problems: building unified shipping platforms for diverse customers, iterating fast while providing the best customer experience, constantly improving our technology while dealing with the eBay volume is what we do best.

  • Wonderful, bright, air-conditioned offices in Shoreditch, with bike racks (and shower!), right next to Liverpool St and Shoreditch High Street stations for super easy commuting, and lots of great food options nearby.

  • Great company culture - we have a culture of respect and high expectations of others. We love sharing a drink during our Friday All Hands, play board games and enjoy free lunch on our demo day.

  • Flexible working - really great support for working from home (weve got good video conferencing facilities) and a great holiday package.

  • Competitive salary and generous benefits.

What you'll do/learn:

  • You will be a member of one of eBay's Shipping agile teams.

  • Youll mainly be working with Java/Spring across our entire stack and infrastructure, including internal and external APIs, enterprise distributed systems, services and tools. You would have an opportunity to contribute to JavaScript/React and the gradual introduction of Kotlin, NoSQL, Node, JavaScript/React and Docker to our platform.

  • Apply TDD/BDD and other agile practices on all the code you deliver.

  • Constantly improve quality: refactoring code, proposing new tools and changing processes.

  • Pair with team members and collaborate with remote teams to share knowledge and give/get constant feedback.

  • Previous experience on mature agile teams delivering continuously is a bonus.

Benefits are an essential part of your total compensation for the work you do every day. Whether youre single, in a growing family, or nearing retirement, eBay offers a variety of comprehensive and competitive benefit programs to meet your needs. Including maternal & paternal leave, paid sabbatical, and plans to help ensure your financial security today and in the years ahead because we know feeling financially secure during your working years and through retirement is important.

Here at eBay, we love creating opportunities for others by connecting people from widely diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and geographies.
