Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world. Etsy, Inc.'s 'house of brands' portfolio has expanded to now include four individually distinct ecommerce brands Etsy, fashion resale marketplace Depop, musical instrument marketplace Reverb, and Brazil-based handmade goods marketplace Elo7. As an Etsy employee, you'll tackle unique problems alongside talented coworkers committed to Keeping Commerce Human. We're large enough that you'll focus on meaningful, complex challenges, but small enough that you can make a rewarding impact.
What’s the role?
The Support Platform team builds and maintains experiences that help Etsy customers quickly resolve their issues through intuitive self-service tools and support experiences. Through meticulous market and user research, you’ll explore, ideate, validate, and build products to support the needs of both sides of our marketplace—our buyers and sellers.
You’ll work with our teams that improve everything from order issues, account management, and our help center, helping our sellers understand service standards and tools for our internals teams to keep the marketplace safe. We’re looking for someone who can take complex processes and workflows and make them intuitive and streamlined while thinking about the entire customer experience!
What is Product Design at Etsy?

Discovering insights, opportunities, and requirements
Testing prototypes and hypotheses with users to collect feedback
Launching experiments and evaluating how they perform and how to iterate
Presenting your work to peers and leadership, async and in-person
Taking part in weekly design critiques, workshops, all hands and squad meetings
Thinking and writing about your process and documenting your decisions
We are considering remote candidates based in the US for this position. Etsy offers three different work modes to meet the variety of needs and preferences of our team: Flex mode for candidates who are comfortable traveling to an office location 2+ times per week, Remote mode, and Office-based mode.
