​​Pierre Omidyar founded eBay on a simple idea: People are basically good.

This fundamental belief created a completely new kind of marketplace, forever transforming ecommerce. Today, this belief continues to drive who we are, how we act, and what we do. Tying us to our roots, our founding principle enables us to make smart decisions that grow our capabilities, our community, our business, and our vision.

The eBay Inc. of today may have grown well beyond its auction house roots, but our founding principles remain the same. We are here to innovate. We are here to build common ground. We are here to make dreams come true. We are here to inspire—new technology, new thinking, new markets, and new customers. And we are here to bring out the best in all the world has to offer. Through trade. Through exchange. Through conversation. Through technology.

This is the place where good, fair, honest business gets done. It’s also the place where online businesses meet the 21st century. If you’re looking to reinvent the future of commerce, eBay Inc. is the place to make it happen.​​

​​Every day, eBay Inc.’s 30,000 people synthesize their efforts to power the world’s leading ecommerce company. And every one of them is treated like family.

At eBay Inc., no matter which of our offices, brands, or locations you call home, you’ll discover consistent benefits that are intended to support you—in your work, your life, your passions, and your future. Take a peek at what might await.

Health & Wellness

We want you (and your family) to be healthy! To help you along that road, we offer a wide variety of health benefits. While our offerings vary from country to country, we strive to offer programs that help support you both in mind and body, including quality health insurance, wellness programs, options to reduce your taxable income, and counseling and referral services.

Financial Security

Feeling financially secure during our working years and through retirement is important to all of us. eBay Inc. provides a variety of plans to help ensure your financial security today and in the years ahead.

Other Benefits

eBay’s busy, fast-paced environment makes for an exciting work experience, but it can also make it difficult to balance personal, family, and professional responsibilities. Managing the demands of life inside and outside the office is both a priority and a challenge for many of us. To that end, some of our locations offer onsite perks—things like dry cleaning pick up and delivery and oil changes—that can give you back a little time and peace of mind.

NOTE: While eBay Inc. intends to provide these benefits indefinitely, we reserve the right to change or terminate any or all of the programs at any time subject to any limitations or restrictions of local law. Benefits may vary depending on location.​​​

 

​​At eBay Inc., our phenomenal growth and innovative business model have provided some pretty amazing opportunities for our employees.

As we expand our reach, we seek people who appreciate careers with responsibility, complexity, and scope.

Your career at eBay Inc. should be inspiring, satisfying, and engaging. It should motivate you to hone existing skills and develop new ones. That’s why we encourage employees at every level to own their careers and actively pursue that next step. At eBay, that equation has three parts: learning through doing, learning through others, and learning through study.

In support of learning through doing, we outfit you with the tools essential to your role, so that you can perform at your best.

Our collaborative, inclusive environments and commitment to hiring the best and the brightest make every day here a chance to learn through others—simply by working together.

And eBay Inc. supports learning through study by providing a variety of resources ranging from online self-guided courses to external courses and conferences. We also offer career-pathing programs* to members of our technology community who would like to advance their careers without assuming managerial responsibilities. For those who want to pursue a degree, there are rotation and tuition programs.

*Programs may vary depending on location.​​​​​
