eBay is a worldwide auction site, eCommerce platform and marketplace that enables people and businesses to buy and sell a wide variety of goods and services.
The Israeli eBay development center runs several projects including the eBay search engine. It builds catalogs, provides information on products, and develops tools for social commerce. The local Israeli branch also has a lab that targets the acceleration of innovative ideas in the big data area. The lab gives access to billions of transactional, behavioral, and performance-driven metrics from eBay's ecosystem of buyers, sellers, and products.
