Company Description

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.

Job Description

What’s the role?

Buyers come to Etsy to shop our vast unique inventory, produced by small businessesall over the world. They come to shop for special occasions, big life moments, and for items that are a reflection of what matters most to them and represents who they are. Each and every day our buyers create around one hundred thousand collections to curate, sort, and organize what they are discovering. Our collections team is innovating the tools we give buyers to curate what they find on Etsy, and exploring new ways to let the rest of the marketplace use this buyer-powered curation to support an easy, fun, and exploratory shopping experience. This role will work alongside product, research, analytics, and engineering partners to lead the design of this innovative product team, by both iterating on existing and building new buyer experiences on both our website and native apps. 

Day to day, it looks like:

  • 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

  • Sharing 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 United States for this position.
