What happens when over 3,000 employees globally spend a week innovating and re-imagining the eBay experience? Magic. This is the word eBay’s Director of Innovation Programs, Nousheen Eslambolchi, uses to describe Hack Week — eBay’s annual week-long program aimed to cultivate new ideas and disrupt ecommerce.
Founded in 1995 in San Jose, Calif., eBay is where the world goes to shop, sell and give. Whether you’re buying new or used, common or luxurious, trendy or rare – if it exists in the world, it’s probably for sale on eBay. Our great value and unique selection helps every person find their version of perfect, no matter what it is.
Our marketplace was founded on the principle of inclusivity - that people are basically good, and that everyone deserves a chance. Diversity and inclusion at eBay goes well beyond a nice-to-do - for us, it's core to our business model and can be traced back to our founder, who was an immigrant with a vision to create economic opportunity by connecting people from widely different backgrounds and geographies. It’s also one of the most important ingredients in how we create a vibrant marketplace for hundreds of millions of buyers and sellers around the world.
Our vision for commerce is one that is enabled by people, powered by technology and open to everyone. Through our investments in small businesses and commitment to innovation, we’re connecting millions of buyers and sellers around the globe, creating economic opportunity for all.
We also reach millions through specialized marketplaces such as eBay Classifieds sites (e.g. Kijiji, Marktplaats, Gumtree), which together have a presence in more than 1,000 cities around the world. – Weniger
