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. 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 Sell on Etsy team is responsible for our mobile seller tools, helping our sellers take important actions to manage their Etsy shop while on the go. Our seller platform helps Etsy sellers showcase their inventory of unique items, maintain human connections with their buyers, and grow their small businesses.
You’ll be joining a newly-formed team that is redesigning the Sell on Etsy app to help our sellers be more efficient, focused, and clearly see how to grow their business. We need someone to help the team define a strategy, prioritize features, and own the execution of mobile design solutions. We’re looking for someone with deep native app expertise who can lead our team in best practices and current trends.
What’s product design like at Etsy?
Product designers at Etsy work in a squad alongside a product manager, 3-5 engineers, a researcher and a data analyst. Together they drive their own part of the Etsy customer experience by delivering solutions to challenging problems and getting feedback directly from customers.
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
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
