  • Proven technical triage and troubleshooting skills, especially in the context of crisis level incident management.
  • Passion about Tech Operations - a desire to make things run reliably and well.
  • Superb communication (written/verbal) and presentation skills in English; equally comfortable communicating with entry level and expert staff
  • Experience with documenting procedures and knowledge management.
  • 8+ years of experience in UNIX/LINUX server administration.
  • Understanding of IT Service Management frameworks such as ITIL and project methodologies such as Agile are a plus.

Whether you’re single, in a growing family, or nearing retirement, eBay offers a variety of comprehensive and competitive benefit programs to meet your needs.

Here at eBay, 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.
