Announcing the newest member of the eBay Developers Program

We are very excited to announce and welcome the newest member of the eBay Developers Program, Sergio “Serge” Gonzales. Serge is joining the team as the Head of the eBay Developers Program. Serge succeeds Kumar Kandaswamy, who headed up the Developers Program for many years.

Serge is no newbie to the eBay world having been with the company since 2003. Most recently, Serge returns to the U.S. after a 3-year assignment at Marktplaats, an eBay-owned Classifieds site in the Netherlands. While there, he managed different cross-functional parts of the organization and his roles have included: Head of CS Business Applications, Head of Application Delivery, Head of QA, Head of Mobile and Innovation Strategy, and acting co-CTO.

When asked about his goals for the program, Serge says: “As a Buyer, Seller, and sometime Developer myself I want to make sure our customers get the greatest value possible from the eBay platform. I am looking forward to partnering with our Developer Community to help make the eBay platform the most profitable opportunity for developing applications. We have a responsibility to our existing partners to help them grow their businesses, and I look forward to getting new Developers excited about building their applications with eBay services. We have a lot of work ahead of us but I couldn’t ask for a more passionate and talented team to help make this happen.”
