What is Product Design at Etsy?

Typically, product designers at Etsy work in a squad with a product manager, 3-5 engineers, researcher, and analyst. Together they drive their own part of Etsy, deliver solutions to tricky 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


Lead/Staff level at Etsy means:

  • You raise the design bar by running independently

  • You level up and give direction to designers within your team

  • You can propose new, high-impact design initiatives, lead workshops and effectively align the group around a vision and approach

  • You have a track record of leading through ambiguity and designing complex flows and customer journeys

  • You embody design quality, understand what success looks like and know how to execute to launch impactful experience change

  • You can think and design at a system level and improve how squads work with our design system

  • You’ll regularly make use of your soft skills to persuade and build alignment: listening, negotiating, decision-making

  • You’ll spend time providing leadership and mentorship to other designers who seek out your expertise

  • 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
