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?
Etsy's payments platform helps millions of Etsy sellers safely and securely make transactions within our marketplace. Available in 43 countries, Etsy Payments enables buyers and sellers to transact in 19 currencies and offers 12 different methods to pay for items on our site.
The Payments team at Etsy is committed to creating and maintaining a resilient, frictionless, and scalable payments platform. This role offers an outstanding challenge that requires designers to work within ambiguous and complex problem spaces. As a Senior Product Designer, you will craft user experiences that strengthen the trust users have in the platform by simplifying complicated workflows for our sellers. You will be responsible for design experimentation on our existing features, and working with partners to develop and drive the direction of early-stage products focused on rapidly growing our platform to new and emerging markets.
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 looks like:
- Discovering insights, opportunities, and requirements
- Testing prototypes and hypotheses with users to collect feedback
- Launching experiments and evaluating how they perform and next steps 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
- Detailing your process and decisions
- Developing insight for Etsy users
- Partnering with product and engineering regularly to effectively dive into problem spaces and come up with solutions together
