We are seeking an innovative leader that deeply understands the changing world of eCommerce and the dynamic that advertising plays in the market.
They will be a creative thinker who has demonstrated the ability to see the future and drive organizations to capture value in new and emerging business models and products.
This creative leader will be the incubator within Ads researching areas and ideas that will drive growth. They will discover, think through and test various business models and prototypes within the Ads space.
They will determine where we should play while interacting and collaborating with product and technology leaders. In the short term, this role will lead our off-eBay ad strategy and incubation- unlocking products and business models that will increase velocity and drive buyer discovery, in non-traditional ways.
This role will report to eBay’s VP and GM of Global Advertising, Alex Kazim, and will be a key member of the Ads leadership team.
They will provide leverage to the leadership team by focusing on potential areas of investment outside of eBay’s core businesses and challenging the status quo.
This is a critical executive position within eBay. The ideal candidate will operate at a high level of intellectual curiosity, exhibit superior strategic capabilities, demonstrate a strong work ethic, and bring a proven ability to work with and lead teams.
They will be super agile and have the maturity, confidence, intellectual strength as well as real world experience to lead and inspire a team of smart and driven professionals.
This candidate must have a passion for understanding and serving the unique community of eBay users. As with any position at this level within eBay, this executive has to be comfortable with independently driving multiple initiates at a rapid pace and making recommendations with incomplete data.
