~Our Mission: Every product, every shelf, every local store!

Diagram of how Milo works

Milo is local shopping made easy. We search your local store shelves in real-time to find the best prices and availability for the products you want to have — right now.

Milo shows you what's in-stock where and tells you how much it costs at that moment. We also offer detailed product information and user reviews, so you can be confident you're getting a product that fits your needs. In short, we make it easy to access the best of both online and offline shopping worlds — all in one place.

As the boundary between online and offline commerce continues to blur, Milo continues to expand its coverage and capabilities — increasing our number of products and retailers, introducing additional mobile features and working to seamlessly connect the online and offline worlds. With the additional resources of eBay, Milo is intent on changing the face of shopping — for decades to come.

~The Leadership Team

Jack

Jack Director of Local, eBay Marketplaces

Jack is the director of Local for eBay Marketplaces. As director of this newly established group, Jack's role focuses on developing eBay's position as the leader in integrating online and offline commerce and blurring the boundaries between the two worlds to create a comprehensive shopping experience for eBay customers.

Prior to joining eBay, Jack was the founder and CEO of Milo.com, a local shopping engine that was acquired by eBay in December 2010. The idea to build Milo.com originated when Jack, then a junior studying technological entrepreneurship at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, went to a local store, to find out the camera he needed was sold out. The experience inspired him to start Milo.com, a local shopping engine that would show buyers which nearby stores currently had a product in stock. While CEO of Milo.com, Jack helped build the initial product and spearheaded investor funding and business development initiatives, which helped the company expand its coverage to 50,000 stores across the United States and increase its user base to more than 1 million unique visitors a month—in just one year. Jack also played a critical role in Milo's recruiting, helping Milo grow from a one person idea to an innovative company of 26, which was able to accomplish something that had never been done before. In 2010, Jack was named to Inc.'s 30 Under 30—a list of 30 of the country's "coolest young entrepreneurs." He was also selected as one of BusinessWeek’s Best Young Entrepreneurs, a list of 25 entrepreneurs aged 25 and under. In his spare time, Jack enjoys snowboarding, playing electric guitar, and getting Milo (the dog) to chase a green laser pointer.

Ted

Ted Software Engineer

Ted is one of Milo's founders. He started his engineering career at Google, where he spent the majority of his time managing the company's internal search engines. Google's ad-hoc internal network provided a wealth of challenges for Ted, each time prompting him to find a new answer to the question, "How do you get the data?" After Google, Ted co-founded an online news aggregation startup called Pressflip, where he led the engineering effort to parse news feeds. At Pressflip, the question became, "Once you have the data, how do you make sense of it?" and Ted wrote the natural language processing and machine learning algorithms to answer it. He joined Milo in 2008 and is the lead engineer for data acquisition. Ted has a degree in Mathematics from the Rochester Institute of Technology and is already attempting to teach math skills to his baby daughter, Rose.

John

John Software Engineer

John is one of Milo's founders. He works on everything but most enjoys developing on Milo's Python back-end. Before Milo, John ran J.P. Evans, Inc., a 7-person software development company that he founded to build custom technology solutions to problems facing several Fortune 500 clients. John also developed the core technology behind comScore, which is where he first met Jack (a long, long time ago). John dropped out of University of Maryland College Park where he was studying Computer Science to spend more time hacking. He does not enjoy long walks on the beach.

Dave

Dave Head of Local Business Development

Dave hails from Sydney, Australia. After studying a couple of engineering degrees at the University of New South Wales and working a few years as a consultant at McKinsey & Company, he decided that a Californian startup was the place to be. So he packed up his bags and his family and traversed the Pacific to join the amazing team at Milo. David leads Milo's business team and operations, and oversees the development of small business products. He loves throwing Nerf-projectiles at unsuspecting engineers, integrating into American society and eating Vegemite.

Rob

Rob Head of Local Product and Engineering

Rob has worn many hats at Milo since joining in mid-2009. Whether it's leading front-end engineering and project management, or brainstorming creative solutions to difficult problems, you never know what he'll be up to next. Rob met Jack at his alma mater: The Wharton School, where he graduated with a B.S. in Economics and an engineering minor in computer science. He was a defensive end on Penn's varsity football team and held 3 technology jobs, including running his own consulting practice. Always on the forefront of technological innovation, in 5th grade Rob designed an 'e-commerce' site with the things he wanted for his birthday, paired with a link on where to find the best price online. In 9th grade, he became a pioneer in selling virtual goods by developing a script that farmed goods from computer games and sold them on eBay. As a kid, he also dabbled in reselling web traffic and playing non-American football. When that didn't work out, he decided to stick to the American version, which amounted in several awards for moves on and off the field, including AP First Team All-State Defense and scholar-athlete recognition. Prior to joining Milo.com, Rob was a Technology Analyst at Goldman Sachs.
