Contract type: Full Time
Work schedule: Full Day
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 Customer Resolutions team builds and maintains experiences that help Etsy customers quickly resolve their issues through intuitive, seamless self-service tools and support experiences. Through rigorous 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—and internal partners.
You’ll work with our teams that improve everything from account management and our help center, to 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 interactions and make them intuitive and streamlined while thinking about the entire customer journey.
What's Product Design like at Etsy?
Typically, product designers at Etsy work in a squad with a product manager, 3-7 engineers, researcher and analyst. Together they drive their own part of Etsy, deliver solutions to challenging problems and get 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

You’ll spend time providing mentorship to other designers
You’ll play a key part in hiring, onboarding, and improving our team’s culture and engagement
Qualities we value in designers:
Effective articulation of ideas and design solutions
Expressing feedback with kindness and candor
