Sr Manager, Strategy & Ops, eBay Motors

Location:

San Jose, California
Requisition Number:
R0049527

eBay Inc. is a global commerce leader that connects millions of buyers and sellers around the world. We exist to enable economic opportunity for individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses, and organizations of all sizes. We are a purpose-driven company that puts the customer at the heart of everything. Our culture encourages people to think big, be curious, act with integrity, and be courageously inclusive. If this sounds compelling, come join eBay!

About the opportunity

eBay Motors is a multi-billion dollar portfolio comprising the Vehicles, Parts & Accessories, Business & Industrial, Heavy Equipment and WHI (Nexpart B2B Marketplace) businesses in the US. These categories are not only among the largest on eBay and core to eBay’s strategic future, but are also actively innovating in the market and at eBay.

We are looking to hire a Senior Manager of Strategy and Operations, located in San Jose, CA, who will support the eBay Motors leadership team and play an instrumental role in accelerating growth across the Motors’ portfolio of assets. The role will be at the forefront of shaping and driving strategy, while ensuring operational excellence in planning, analytics, reporting, and collaboration across a broad cross-functional team. Our key partners include product, marketing, analytics, finance, operations, pricing, and business development, among many others.

The role demands a dual mentality: both that of a strategic leader—who has a deep understanding of the dynamics of two-sided marketplaces, can break down tough problems into clear frameworks, operate in ambiguity, and possesses strong data intuition and executive-ready communications—as well as someone who can move quickly and decisively as an embedded operator not afraid to get their hands dirty.

  • Own tracking and reporting of portfolio health to eBay global leadership teams

  • Partner with GMs and Category Managers to manage key budget decisions and impact on P&L

  • Establish processes and guardrails to ensure operational success in Motors

  • Enable market intelligence capabilities to monitor competitive insights, industry trends, and distill Motors-specific implications

  • Collaborate with cross-functional partners; ensure alignment with other eBay verticals, other eBay teams, and global initiatives

Qualifications

  • Track record of strategic leadership, structured thinking, and ability to prioritize against multiple initiatives

  • Demonstrated ability to project manage a group of peers and lead through influence

  • Strong cross-functional leader who is also recognized as a collaborator and partner

  • Executive level verbal and written communication skills, including the ability to tell a compelling story backed by data

  • High degree of ownership and commitment to results

  • Self-motivated to identify opportunities and challenges in the business

  • Data-driven approach to planning and decision making. Comfortable and hands-on with data, analytics, and modeling

  • Organized problem solver who balances attention to detail with efficiency

  • Strong understanding of P&L

  • Ambition to grow professionally and willingness to work hard, learn/adapt, and provide feedback both upward and to peer teams

Requirements

  • 8+ years of related experience, including 4+ years at a top-tier management consulting firm, investment bank, or in a strategy & planning role at a major corporation

  • Industry experience in consumer goods, retail, e-commerce, or consumer tech

  • Interest and/or experience in Motors a plus, but not required

  • BA/BS required, MBA or similar graduate degree preferred

We love creating opportunities for others by connecting people from widely diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and geographies. So, being diverse and inclusive isn’t just something we strive for, it is who we are, and part of what we do each and every single day.
