Come be disruptive at eBay -- the Disruptive Innovation team is hiring 3 developers to work on prototyping new ideas. These developers will work closely with me and other members of the Developers Program to develop stuff built on eBay's web services. These are, in my opinion, some of the coolest positions at eBay, because you'll be able to work on lots of different projects, using many different technologies. Here are the links to the "official" job descriptions on eBay's career site (NOTE: THESE LINKS ONLY WORK IN IE -- Our job site is stuck in 1998):
Senior SW Engineer, Innovation (2 hired for this role)
Like all official job descriptions, those should be taken with a grain of salt. Here is my interpretation of what really matters:
- Be technically proficient -- bredth is more important than depth
- Have built something of significance, either on your own or in a previous job
- Work well on a team
- Be passionate about eBay -- hate it or love it, but don't be indifferent
I'd be happy to discuss the positions with you further. Contact me through the email link on my blog. I'll also be helping the hiring manager recruit for these positions at the 360Flex conference next month in San Jose.
