JERUSALEM (JTA) – eBay is expanding its activity in Israel.
The Internet consumer company said it will unite its two activity centers in Netanya and Tel Aviv into a development center, and will expand the center by recruiting computer engineers, industrial and management engineers, and information system engineers, Ynet reported Monday.
eBay employs more than 200 workers in Israel. The new Israeli development center will focus on building catalogues, creating information on products and developing tools for social commerce aimed at allowing collective purchases and sharing the buying process with other users, according to Ynet.
Last year eBay bought the Israeli startup The Gifts Project, which developed an application for online group gifting.
In addition to five development centers in the United States, eBay has centers in India and China.
