About The Team

eBay’s Red Team is charged with testing the security of all software and systems deployed within the enterprise. From brand new platforms and payment systems to legacy systems and code, everything is in scope. The team is split between a traditional Red Team, whose job is to hack into systems and steal data, along with Penetration Testing, a team that very actively (and sometimes retroactively) tests systems and code searching for every vulnerability. Our team is a well-respected, highly technical group within eBay’s Infosec team.

Do you want to be the tip of the spear, ensuring that eBay is as secure as possible?

Do you have what it takes to root out all the vulnerabilities in an environment with hundreds of thousands of systems and millions of lines of code?

Do you thrive in an independent environment, where each team member is trusted to scope, test, and help remediate issues?

Do you want to work somewhere that prizes work-life balance?

This eBay team might be the perfect fit for you!
