Quality Engineer

London, England Requisition Number R0014801 Subsidiary eBay

Looking for a company that inspires passion, courage and imagination, where you can be part of the team shaping the future of global commerce? Want to shape how millions of people buy, sell, connect, and share around the world? If you’re interested in joining a purpose driven community that is dedicated to creating an ambitious and inclusive workplace, join eBay – a company you can be proud to be a part of.


European Product Development (EPD) is based in London and part of the global Seller Experience group. 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, while retaining high quality.

The Seller Experience group is responsible for improving the experience of our 25 million sellers worldwide. To do this, we improve existing experiences and build new products to make the life of eBay sellers better, no matter where in the world they are based.

We are continually striving for the highest quality, and work in small focused teams following bits of Scrum, bits of Kanban, with a healthy dose of Extreme Programming (PS - 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 Dev, Ops and Test), and UX all working together every day.

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

What sort of Tester are we looking for?

We’re after an experienced software tester who is excited by the challenge of testing software at scale. You’re at home in an Agile environment and your inquisitive nature and desire to dig into the unknown are two of your strengths.

You should have a deep understanding of various testing approaches, including exploratory testing and automation. You should also be comfortable with your skills and experience in testing the ideas for new features just as much as testing the designs, the code and the software itself, using a risk based mind-set for structuring your testing.

Most of our applications are written in Java, Scala or Javascript/NodeJS, so ideally, you’ll be comfortable reading and understanding some of these languages and pairing with programmers when they are writing code.

Our programmers are serious about testing too and write their own unit tests as they code. You’ll be the testing specialist in the team, facilitating that testing mind-set during design and story breakdown as well as weighing in on testing strategies and providing guidance and coaching within your agile team and the wider community.

You will work with people who care about well written, test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences. The team works very closely, and like to pair on pretty much everything.

Our teams decide the right tool for the job, so you should be comfortable doing this too.  We have a lot fun discussing the merits of different technology and we want people who can join and lead these conversations.

Having a desire to expand and master something new means you're a good fit for us. Because of this culture, we also like our folks to be great communicators while being open, honest and direct.

We value individual contributors on the team and department level greatly, and have a fantastic culture of recognising self-starters.

We hope you're getting the idea of what we're looking for. We're looking for great people, with an opinion, and the capability to back it up.
