Sr. Product Designer: Payments & Multi-channel Sales Programs Etsy
Senior Product Designers lead Design and UX for projects and collaborate with Product, Engineering, and the rest of the design team to deliver clean and consistent user experiences.
At Etsy, our Product Design team is responsible for wearing many hats at once: from high-level product thinking, to interaction flows and just-enough mockups, all the way to front-end implementation (html and css). We work with and across every team at Etsy - Product, Engineering, Support, Business, Operations and Marketing - to develop and ship a meaningful, cohesive experience for our community.
This position is based in Brooklyn, NY.
About the Team
Etsy launched our payments platform in 2012 with the goal of making transactions for both buyers and shop owners as seamless as possible without leaving the site, and to open the door for us to build products like Gift Cards. We?ve now got a great foundation to build upon as the Payments & Multi-channel Sales Programs teams help evolve what it means to make purchases or run businesses through Etsy from anywhere in the world.
About the Job
As a Senior Product Designer at Etsy, you'll be expected to tackle our most difficult user experience problems. We'll look to you not only to be a leader on your product team, but to elevate your fellow designers' work with thoughtful critique, both online and in person - in groups and one-on-one. You will be expected to think holistically and encourage your teams and fellow designers to think beyond what they're building right this second.
On the design side, you will need a good sense for when to apply established patterns and styles, as well as when to evolve them or leave them behind entirely (while updating our style guide and documentation accordingly). You'll identify and help correct product inconsistencies, on both the visual and experience sides.
You will be successful in this role if you:
3 or more years of design experience (previous mobile work is a huge plus).
Able to provide samples of work that show complex and creative UX solutions, exceptional visual design and solid information architecture.
Advanced knowledge of html and css techniques (both current and future)
Love giving and receiving honest, thoughtful feedback.
Believe that product and design decisions are inextricably linked.
Enjoy shipping small, quick experiments to validate your ideas and opinions.
Unafraid to have your opinion changed (strong beliefs, loosely held).
