Sr. Product Designer - Seller Platform Etsy
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED 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
As a product, Etsy relies on enabling independent makers and sellers to open shops and sell their items to shoppers who visit our site. As Etsy has grown, both in the number and variety of shops, so have our shop management tools and listing process. Tools and forms that worked a few years ago are primed for a deep UX and visual refresh. Our goal as a group is to holistically rethink the selling experience on Etsy, not only to simplify and enhance what exists today, but to prepare our platform to gracefully evolve in the future.
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.
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).
We're growing rapidly and are well funded with a proven business model and established revenue to help us continue growing and serving our community. If you're interested in joining the team at Etsy, please send a cover letter along with your portfolio, telling us what inspires you about Etsy and why you think you are perfect for the team (applications without a cover letter and portfolio will not be considered). If you contribute to an open source project, write a blog, or practice another craft besides designing beautiful, functional websites, that means something to us, and we would love to hear about it!
