Sr. Product Manager 2 - Technical

San Jose, California Requisition Number R0033559

The Search Experience team is responsible for the search page, a component critical to the business of eBay’s core marketplaces across the globe.  It operates within the Buyer Experience charter, tasked with creating world-class user experiences that buyers love.  The Search Experience team thus strives to build an experience that enables users to easily explore, find, and buy what they want at the best value through an engaging, frictionless, and trusted Search experience, helping them make confident purchase decisions. Also, as the page is one of the primary intersections of eBay programs, the success of the team is built on close partnerships with an array of other product organizations, including Search Science, Ads, Shipping, Selling, Mobile, Local, and Geographic Expansion.

Primary Job Responsibilities:

We are seeking a Senior Product Manager, who is passionate about online commerce and the buyer experience, to join the Search Experience product team.  This person will primarily be data-driven and analytical to draw insights from current product performance to help build the Search Services plan on the Search Response Page (SRP).

This person will need to work with a large number of teams within eBay to make these visions successful, so building close, effective relationships with partner Product Managers will be critical.  In addition, this person will translate product strategy into detailed specifications, make functional and user interface design tradeoffs, manage product launches and own the product successes post-launch.  Having the experience and ability to write clear, consistent and detailed product specs will be essential.  He or she will work closely with a cross-functional team of engineering, design, analytics, product marketing, and user research to deliver these products.
