Software Engineering Intern at eBay (London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, UK) (allows remote)
Shutl is a London startup founded in 2008 and acquired by eBay in 2013. We started by offering eCommerce customers delivery in minutes. Today we have expanded our vision and we are building out our services to become a global eCommerce delivery solution. In 2017 we launched Shutl services on eBay in the UK; in 2018 we are entering new markets and adding more services to reach millions of new users.
Shutl has big ambitions and the backing of one of the most prestigious technology companies in the world today. With more than 100 million active users globally, eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace, where anyone can buy and sell virtually anything. We are committed to provide a great experience to our customers and we are looking for a talented and driven individual to help us achieve our goals.
