The eBay Classifieds Group (eCG) is an innovative global leader in online classifieds. Our sites help people find whatever they are looking for in their local communities. Every connection made or item found makes a difference by creating a world where people share more and waste less. We have eleven brands that span the globe offering online classifieds in more than 1,000 cities around the world.
eBay Classified Group is always looking for high-energy, self-motivated, committed individuals who are passionate about their work. Our team members enjoy a challenging environment that places the highest value on innovation, accountability and playing to win. Our culture is based on open and honest communication, respect for other points of view and a spirit of fun. We look forward to hearing from you.
We believe that data is the voice of the customer. Through customer research and continuous experimentation, we make sure the customer is involved in building the best classifieds experience in the world. We’ve organized around the key stages of the customer, where every journey team is a matrix team consisting of product managers, business owners, UX designers, developers and marketers.

The individuals on this team are highly motivated to create new channels and optimize features that drive (new and existing) user activation and engagement with our marketplace. The team’s core capability is data-driven rapid experimentation to identify winners that increase our buyer and seller vibrancy.
As a Front-end Developer, you will work closely with product, marketing, design, and data analysts, to help grow an active user base. You will help guide new auto buyers through our funnel (from acquisition, onboarding, activation, and ultimately connecting to sellers), and also help make sure these users stick around.
