Job Description

eBay’s EEC Product Development team is based in Madrid and is part of the global Core Product and Technology team. We enable commerce at scale, and have massive customer impact. Whilst doing all this, we are on a mission to improve eBay technology, drive agile adoption and demonstrate customer-centric development targeted towards our customers in Spain, Italy, France and other parts of Europe. While focused on local market needs we also contribute to eBay’s global product and technology portfolio. To do this, we improve existing experiences, build or extend core products and experiment with new innovations to make the lives of eBay customers better.

We are continually striving for the highest quality, and work in small focused teams following bits of Scrum, bits of Kanban, with a healthy dose of Extreme Programming (p.s. these aren't buzzwords, we mean it when we say we do this stuff).

Our cross-functional teams have Product Management, all aspects of Product Development (including DevOps and Test), and UX all working together every day. We are collocated with eBay’s EEC business teams and closely interact with our European customers and other eBay teams on a daily basis.

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

So, what type of quality engineer are we looking for?

  • You’re an experienced software tester who is excited by the challenge of testing software at scale. You’re at home in an Agile environment and your inquisitive nature and desire to dig into the unknown are two of your strengths.

  • You have a deep understanding of various testing approaches, including exploratory testing and automation. You’re also comfortable with your skills and experience in testing the ideas for new features just as much as testing the designs, the code and the software itself, using a risk based mind-set for structuring your testing.

  • Most of our applications are written in Java, Scala or Javascript/Node.JS, so ideally, you’ll be comfortable reading and understanding some of these languages and pairing with programmers when they are writing code.

  • You’re interested in applying programming skills yourself and contribute not only from a testing perspective, but also from a developer perspective in pairing sessions.

  • Our programmers are serious about testing too and write their own unit tests as they code. You’ll be a testing specialist in the team, facilitating that testing mind-set during design and story breakdown as well as weighing in on testing strategies and providing guidance and coaching within your agile team and the wider community.

  • You will work with people who care about well written, test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences. The team works very closely, and like to pair on pretty much everything.

  • Our teams decide the right tool for the job, so you should be comfortable doing this too.  We have a lot fun discussing the merits of different technology and we want people who can join and lead these conversations.

  • Having a desire to expand and master something new means you're a good fit for us. Because of this culture, we also like our folks to be great communicators while being open, honest and direct.

  • We value individual contributors on the team and department level greatly, and have a fantastic culture of recognising self-starters.

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

  • You are highly proficient in English and in one or more among Spanish, Italian, French.

What do we offer:

  • Dynamic, international teams with very skilled personalities, a passion for e-commerce, professionalism and a good sense of humor.
  • The chance to work closely with other teams across eBay; in Europe, Australia, the USA and globally.
  • A competitive salary, great benefits and an excellent working environment.
  • Silicon Valley amenities, such as iPhones and MacBook Pros, crazy high spec dev machines and brand new office facilities modern, tech-rich office building equipped with 500 devices ready to connect across five continents and 16 countries in central Madrid, in Salamanca area.
