Just got an interesting piece of information from our Google Cloud Computing Group about an ebay job posting. In the posting they are appear to be looking for a "Director, Cloud Computing Engineering".

Here is the job description:

As part of the Systems team, this position will lead engineering teams to develop innovative solutions that meet needs with respect to functionality, performance, scalability, reliability, realistic implementation schedules, and adherence to development goals and principles.
This position is responsible for leading the strategy and implementation of initiatives, as well as the day to day engineering team management for the Cloud Computing initiative.
It is interesting they have a cloud computing initiative, I wonder what it will look like?
