MTS 2, Software Engineer - iOS Dev Lead

As the iOS Dev Lead in the Selling Team, you should have an established foundation in iOS, Swift, (some Objective-C is great), as well as fluency in Agile engineering practices and delivery. You also should have experience in leading, mentoring and directing a team of phenomenal iOS engineers. We're focused on improving the experience of selling items on eBay and work closely with our business team to identify phenomenal features, interface improvements and emerging technologies to help our customers. Quality is more than just code coverage, and everyone is responsible for keeping the bar high. We work with geographically dispersed teams, so excellent communication and remote collaboration skills are necessary for our projects to succeed

eBay is a global commerce leader that allows you to shape how the world buys, sells, and gives. You’ll be part of a work culture that’s been genuinely committed to diversity and inclusion since its founding more than 20 years ago. Here, you can just be yourself, do your best work, and have an important impact on people across the globe. We are looking for people with drive, ideas, and a passion for helping small businesses succeed to help shape the future of eBay—does this sound like you? If so, we’d love to talk to you!

  • We enjoy TDD, pairing, code reviews, and other techniques to maintain high-quality code and resiliency as a team. Quality is more than just code coverage, and everyone is responsible for keeping the bar high.
