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. 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
We are looking for an accomplished product leader with expertise in the Payments area to lead Etsy’s growing Payments Product team. As the Sr. Director of Product, Payments, you will direct a team of Product Managers who build all aspects of the Payments ecosystem, including the seller finances, the buyer experience, infrastructure, 3rd party integrations, and compliance. You will partner closely with the VP of Payments to develop a product strategy, translate it into a roadmap, and drive plan execution. You will help create a vision for Etsy’s Payments that will lead us into the future.
We seek a candidate who is comfortable managing a large scope and who can seamlessly partner across the organization: with engineers, research, analytics, design, operations, finance, and others. You are an experienced manager who can build and elevate a team of hardworking Product Managers and Group Product Managers, located in New York and Dublin, Ireland. You are passionate about mentoring and you inspire a dynamic and impactful Product culture.
Do you have a desire to build outstanding products and tackle multifaceted payments challenges? If so, this could be the ideal match!

  • Relentlessly prioritize and focus your team on development that addresses top opportunities that benefit Etsy’s members and overall business
  • Create strong relationships with partners and other parts of the business, to make sure payments supports Etsy’s overall strategy and success
  • Of course, this is just a sample of the kinds of work this role will require! You should assume that your role will encompass other tasks, too, and that your job duties and responsibilities may change from time to time at Etsy's discretion, or otherwise applicable with local law
