I am hiring a person to figure out how we should be exposing eBay using Web services and then creating the product proposals to implement the strategy. You also get to monitor everything else that’s going on at eBay and make sure it’s API-enabled in an platform savvy way.
If you’re interesting in participating in this thing popularly known as “Web 2.0,” then this is a killer opportunity. We serve up 2 billion (with a b) API calls a month, and we just made all calls free, so we’re talking serious scale and opportunity.
The ideal candidate has some strategy, programming, and product experience in her background. A little financial analysis wouldn’t hurt, either.
Here’s the official job description. That’s Requisition No. 7471BR at ebaycareers.com, in case the link doesn’t work. (Mac and Linux friends, please don’t flame me for the Win/IE bigoted job recruiting web site. I had to boot up my girlfriend’s Windows box to use the site when I applied, too.)
If you’re interested, e-mail me or apply directly and let the recruiter know you found out about the job through my blog. My work e-mail address is the first initial of my first name (a), followed by my entire last name (trachtenberg), at the ebay.com domain.
