As one of the most dynamic user-driven marketplaces on the planet, eBay feels a constitutional duty to invest in making a positive difference in the world. eBay Social Ventures was how the company answered this call, including opportunities for charitable transactions with eBay Giving Works / eBay For Charity, as well as forward-thinking sustainability microsite eBay Green, which offers education on eco-friendly home retrofits and touts the virtues (and deals) of an environmentally friendly lifestyle.
My involvement at eBay touched three areas: eBay Careers, eBay Giving Works / eBay For Charity, and eBay Green. I designed a new logo for eBay For Charity to better match the current eBay corporate identity and developed in-product features to drive charitable engagement. Next, I worked with the eBay Green team to conduct user research and strategic consulting to set the direction for the evolution of their product. Finally, I joined forces with the eBay Careers team to aid them in organizing the opportunities at eBay for career searchers and streamline the application flow.
