eBay Senior Agile Software Developer in Germany

Requisition No.: 123970BR

Subsidiary: eBay

Primary Job Responsibilities: Job Description SummaryeBay in Europe is hiring! We are looking for Agile Software Developers to join our Selling teams in Berlin.

Job Requirements:

What is Product Development like in the Commerce Experience Group?

The European Product Development (EPD) teams are based in London and Berlin; we're part of a much larger Seller Experience group globally within eBay. We enable commerce at scale, and have massive customer impact. We are on a mission to improve eBay technology, drive agile adoption and demonstrate customer-centric development.

The Seller Experience group is responsible for improving the lives of our 25 million sellers worldwide. We improve existing experiences and build new products to make it easier and quicker to sell on eBay, no matter what size, or where in the world they are.

We are continually striving for the highest quality, and work in small focussed teams following bits of Scrum, Kanban, with a healthy dose of Extreme Programming.

We are an active part of the Berlin tech community. For more information: http://www.meetup.com/eBay-Europe-Technology

Working at eBay is a rewarding, challenging and inspiring experience.

So, what type of developer are we looking for?

We need a developer with an expert's depth and breadth of experience of building high availability, scalable web applications and services. You will be proficient in teaching and leading by example, and be comfortable mentoring both junior and senior developers.

Day to day, we write code in Java, Scala or Javascript, but as someone who is passionate about development, you'll be open to picking up new languages and frameworks when the situation arises.

You will work with people who care about well written, test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences and all the lovely stuff that's involved with automatically tested, zero-touch deployed applications. The team works very closely, and like to pair program on pretty much everything.

Developers write their own tests, whilst learning from test engineers embedded in the team. EPD developers learn form each other. For example, our Java specialists learn from our Javascript experts, and vice-versa. Having a desire to expand and master something new means you're a good fit for us.

Our developers decide on the right tool for the job, so you should be comfortable in doing the same. We have a lot of fun discussing the merits of different technology and want people who can lead these conversations.

We hope you get the idea of what we're looking for. We're looking for great developers, with an opinion, and the capability to back it up.

What we offer:

  • A chance to interact with other teams across eBay, and influence the future of technology at the company. We work closely with teams in Europe and USA.

  • Opportunities for travel, conference attendance and speaking

  • A competitive salary, great benefits, and excellent working conditions.

  • Silicon Valley amenities - iPhones, MacBook Pro's, crazy high spec developer machines, and great office facilities

  • An opportunity to build applications which are used by millions of people globally.
