About The Team:
The Value Squad is a product development team that is focused on engaging infrequent buyers to bring them back to Etsy to make their next purchase. Our squad is primarily focused on making it rewarding for buyers to make another purchase by providing promotions through marketing channels, and making it easy to find items to use their promotions on.
We are a cross-functional product development squad consisting of engineers, a product manager, designer, product marketer, data analyst and user researcher. We collaborate closely and learn via data, user interviews, experimentation and iteration so that we can take a holistic approach to improving the new buyer experience.
