eBay Classifieds Group (eCG) is now part of Adevinta, an innovative leader in digital marketplaces spanning 17 countries. We’re all about matchmaking, and our sites help people find whatever they’re looking for in their local communities. Every connection made or item found makes a difference by creating a world where people share more and waste less.

As a global network of loved local brands, including Marktplaats in the Netherlands, in Germany and leboncoin in France, our team of over 6,000 employees are there to make things better, safer and easier for the people who choose to visit and use our marketplaces every month. And we do that by being experts in our field, basing improvements on data and bringing together our network of talented teams.

About the team

eCG’s Data and ML Platform team has two primary goals - democratize access to global data and make machine learning at eCG easy. We empower the organization to build data-driven products and insights based on reliable and secure data, so everyone can spend more time delivering value.

The marketplaces in the eCG portfolio fuel the central data platform with rich behavioral, content and user data. Our global and local data product teams offer various services ranging from recommendations, to search ranking, to user profiling and segmentation, to performance statistics engines and others to offer our end-users and partners to create perfect matches on our marketplaces. We work closely together with these teams, learn from them and build new and better tools to improve their productivity and influence.

We are on the lookout for top-notch software engineers to join our team and make a global impact in an exciting and dynamic environment. Come and join us!

About the role

You will be leveraging Google Cloud to build and maintain data and machine learning primitives and self-serve platform tooling ranging from:

  • Data ingestion and consumption services for batch and streaming to democratize data access.

  • Shared feature stores and serving systems to facilitate reusability of curated data features across domains.

You will build the technology that supports eCG to create an ecosystem of discoverable, addressable, trustworthy, interoperable and secure datasets and data products to realize the data mesh paradigm at scale.

In executing against our mission, you will work closely with global and local engineers, architects, data scientists and product owners.

As a result, most teams are working remotely, with a few teams able to collaborate in person with enhanced safety procedures. We will discuss the particular case for your region during the interview process. As a general rule, interviews will be completed remotely over video calls.
