Company Description

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world. As an Etsy employee, you’ll tackle unique problems alongside talented coworkers committed to Keeping Commerce Human. We're large enough that you'll focus on meaningful, complex challenges, but small enough that you can make a rewarding impact.

About The Team

Job Description

Etsy’s Product Research team focuses on using multi-methods research to guide the development of buyer and seller experiences in our dynamic marketplace of unique items. We collaborate with our partner teams through all stages of product development, from identifying initial opportunities, to refining the user experience, to analyzing the impact of our efforts and highlighting improvement areas.

About The Role

As a UX Researcher on Etsy’s Product Research team, you will work in partnership with product managers, designers, engineers, and alongside other researchers and data scientists to deliver insights that will craft the future of human commerce on Etsy.

You know how to conduct professional-quality user experience research, incorporating both qualitative and quantitative methods. You work well with others, and have proven instincts about when to hold the line on methodological rigor, and when to adapt to the changing demands of a project. Most importantly, you approach your work with a genuine sense of curiosity and empathy, and you’re willing to challenge conventional wisdom to find the right answer!

Your Day-to-day Might Include

  • Partner with product managers, designers and marketers to guide product development and refinement, drawing on expertise in user research and UX standards
  • Independently define project scope and apply appropriate methodologies to manage a research "portfolio" of foundational and evaluative insights
  • Educate stakeholders on accessibility best practices and implement accessible recruitment panels and testing methods to scale the work across Etsy
  • Conduct on-site, remote, and in-field user research studies with Etsy buyers and sellers
  • Work closely with other researchers and data analysts to develop broad approaches to meeting partner needs
  • Share tangible findings and prioritized recommendations on a regular basis, to encourage marketplace health and drive Etsy’s business goals
  • Manage third-party research vendors (e.g., research agencies, moderators) as necessary
  • Promote proven user research methodologies across the company

This is a full-time position reporting to the Senior Product Research Manager. We offer flexible workplace policies that can accommodate work from home candidates who are comfortable traveling to an office location 2-3 times per week.

  • Experience leading research at different parts of the product development process, from discovery to delivery
  • You are a strong communicator and storyteller, with the ability to hold your own in a meeting and present research findings with a customer-centric perspective
