What’s product design like at Etsy?

  • Take part in weekly design critiques, workshops, all hands and squad meetings
  • Think and write about your process and detailing your decisions
  • Champion cohesion and consistency in UX design that unites a growing family of products/features
  • Be a strategic leader with vision in how to implement experiences that represent the most customer-centric intersection between design, business, content, and technology.
