This summer eBay announced new image search technology that the New York office brought to life. The technology lets you upload photos of products to the eBay mobile app and then helps you find that product or something similar. Nice work for a small team of 130 people that represents only about 1 percent of eBay employees around the world.
Beck says the office gets to work on products for 171 million buyers in 190 countries, but the office still has a startup feel because of its small size. Adding to that startup feel is the Friends of eBay program, an incubator helping to nurture New York’s tech community.
