Starting a business on eBay is perhaps your fastest route to the American Dream. eBay had recently published it’s annual Impact Report 2021. "We founded eBay over 25 years ago to build community and connections through ecommerce.
As part of this journey, we make selling and buying
equitable and attainable for all – with a goal to empower everyone everywhere to grow, thrive and succeed on our global marketplace while making meaningful choices for
their purchases and businesses." eBay 2021 Impact Report - Jamie Iannone, President & CEO, eBay May 17, 2022
eBay Careers - The name of the company was officially changed to eBay in September, 1997. The company went public in 1998, making Omidyar and the first eBay president, Jeff Skoll, instant billionaires. The company has since purchased many other related companies, including PayPal, Skype and a percentage interest in Craigslist. As of this writing they employ over 12,000 employees worldwide, and are headquartered in San Jose, CA. (by Laura Schneider)eBay Careers
