Could you be the Prod­uct Man­ag­er for renowned Etsy? Etsy is a mar­ket­place where peo­ple around the world con­nect to buy and sell unique goods. Their mis­sion is to re-imag­ine com­merce in ways that build a more ful­fill­ing and last­ing world. Cur­rent­ly Etsy is proud to be a cer­ti­fied B Cor­po­ra­tion — a new kind of com­pa­ny that uses the pow­er of busi­ness to solve social and envi­ron­men­tal prob­lems. Etsy is lov­ing­ly built and main­tained by these fine folks who work in Brook­lyn, Hud­son, San Fran­cis­co, Berlin, Dublin, Lon­don, Toron­to, and around the world.

The Etsy Prod­uct Man­age­ment team is respon­si­ble for the vision and direc­tion of a glob­al, dual-sided mar­ket­place that touch­es over 40 Mil­lion buy­ers and over 1 Mil­lion sell­ers. They sit in cross-func­tion­al teams, use data and user-research to dri­ve deci­sion mak­ing, believe in con­tin­u­ous inte­gra­tion, and love spend­ing time with their users. They pri­or­i­tize work that deliv­ers impact at scale, is mea­sur­able, and is achievable.

You’ll help shape Etsy’s prod­uct devel­op­ment strat­e­gy and ensure the deliv­ery of suc­cess­ful, new prod­ucts. You’ll work close­ly with your peers in engi­neer­ing, design, data analy­sis, mar­ket­ing, busi­ness devel­op­ment, and sup­port. This posi­tion is based in Brook­lyn, NY.

So who is the ide­al Prod­uct Man­ag­er for Etsy?

Well, you’ll need to set the prod­uct strat­e­gy, pri­or­i­tize fea­tures, build con­sen­sus, and coor­di­nate prod­uct (take a deep breathe) sched­ule with a team of engi­neers and design­ers to ship high-qual­i­ty expe­ri­ences to Etsy shop­pers (whew, that was a mouth­ful). Next, build and main­tain a roadmap to delight their users while grow­ing the busi­ness. Cre­ate cas­es and user sto­ries around a prod­uct and com­mu­ni­cate them effec­tive­ly. Inte­grate usabil­i­ty stud­ies, user research, mar­ket analy­sis, and com­mu­ni­ty feed­back into prod­uct require­ments to ensure prod­ucts sat­is­fy user needs as well as wants.

Inform prod­uct deci­sions with quan­ti­ta­tive data on user behav­ior and exper­i­men­ta­tion (a/b test­ing). Facil­i­tate com­mu­ni­ca­tion through­out the devel­op­ment process by part­ner­ing with a vari­ety of inter­nal teams includ­ing mar­ket­ing, busi­ness devel­op­ment, cus­tomer sup­port, and com­mu­ni­ty. Define meth­ods and met­rics for iden­ti­fy­ing suc­cess and fail­ure while ensur­ing the team is clear on their objec­tives. Coor­di­nate with oth­er prod­uct man­agers and design­ers to ensure the cohe­sive­ness of the over­all user experience.

If these are under your belt, then all that’s left is if they like you as a per­son: 4+ years of prod­uct man­age­ment / prod­uct own­er­ship expe­ri­ence, excep­tion­al writ­ten and oral com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills. Strong user expe­ri­ence sen­si­bil­i­ties and appre­ci­a­tion for min­i­mal inter­face design, orga­ni­za­tion­al and ana­lyt­i­cal skills.

HTML/CSS/JS/SQL and abil­i­ty to work close­ly with engi­neers. Strong use of ana­lyt­ics, user research and busi­ness cas­es to dri­ve deci­sions and improve prod­ucts. Expe­ri­ence work­ing for an engi­neer­ing-dri­ven com­pa­ny a plus.
