Location:

Toronto, Canada
Requisition Number:
R0047100

Business Overview

Founded in 1995 in San Jose, California, eBay Inc is a global ecommerce leader, and one of the world’s most recognizable brands. Our marketplace connects millions of buyers and sellers around the world every day. From our roots in online auctions for used goods, today eBay is an ecommerce powerhouse with over 1 billion new and used items available for purchase using both fixed-price and auction formats. We have over 185M active buyers in 190 countries. Canadians purchase over $1 billion dollars on eBay annually, making us one of this country’s largest and most successful ecommerce businesses.

eBay’s purpose is to “empower people and create economic opportunity” – this includes individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes. eBay’s marketplace enables small and medium businesses across Canada to succeed while they ‘stay local and sell global’.

eBay Canada has a very entrepreneurial atmosphere with the feeling of a start-up, but the resources (via our global teams) of an established company – the best of both worlds!

Role Overview

eBay is on a journey of building up differentiated positions in key categories. This role will lead those efforts in our large and sought after Parts & Accessories (P&A) business. eBay has one of the largest range of P&A inventory in the world. This category is a major priority for eBay and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to drive this business to the next level.

The Canadian Head of P&A will have end-to-end responsibility for building up our P&A business, which includes our domestic (Canadian to Canadian) business as well as imports and exports with key markets such as the US. The role reports into the Canadian General Manager and will be a key member of the Canadian leadership team.

Responsibilities

  • Own the P&A business and optimally build differentiated positions

  • Set short and long term goals, budgets and put processes and programs in place to optimally achieve these goals

  • Build relationships and work cross-functionally with other Canadian and Global teams (Marketing, Comms, Shipping, Authentication, Business Development, Product, Customer Service) to achieve results

  • Work especially closely with the US P&A teams to learn and adopt the best ideas and concepts

  • Lead business development efforts with top brands and sellers, developing pipelines, recruiting new sellers, onboarding, problem solving issues, developing positive relationships and helping them grow successful businesses on eBay

  • Develop and plan new strategies and campaigns for acquiring and developing loyalty amongst enthusiasts in P&A

  • Capture feedback from enthusiasts and work collaboratively with product and operations teams to prioritize, design, test and launch new features

  • Lead, mentor and support 1-2 team members

  • Serve as a member of the Canadian leadership team, supplying thought leadership, working collaboratively and mentoring across the broader team.

What you need to succeed:

  • Entrepreneurial and scrappy self-starter with a bias to action – able to find creative ways to get things done, experiment and pivot as needed

  • Strong leadership skills – an active listener who draws out individual and team strengths

  • Passionate about helping Canadian small businesses succeed

  • Data-driven problem-solver with a track record of delivering results in complex environments

  • Strong communication and stakeholder management skills – able to work across matrixed global environments to develop collaborative partnerships and deliver results

  • 8+ years of experience in a P&A business with a strong emphasis on an ecommerce / digital first experience

Benefits are an essential part of your total compensation for the work you do every day. 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. Including maternal & paternal leave, paid sabbatical, and plans to help ensure your financial security today and in the years ahead because we know feeling financially secure during your working years and through retirement is important.

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. We want to ensure that as an employee, you feel eBay is a place where, no matter who you are, you feel safe, included, and that you have the opportunity to bring your unique self to work.
