Sr. UX Researcher


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.

  Job Description

As a Senior 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!

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.

This position is open to remote candidates within the US.

Many Etsy roles are open to remote candidates, and you'll be able to identify which ones within the location header of each job description. For candidates who will work remotely from Colorado, visit this link [1] for information related to Colorado's Equal Pay for Equal Work Act.

  • Conduct on-site, remote, and in-field user research studies with Etsy buyers and sellers

  • 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

About You

  • Can demonstrate an in-depth understanding of a range of user research methods and a deep understanding of modern trends in Web and app design

  • Have approx. 4+ years experience conducting UX research, employing methods such as in-depth user interviews, contextual inquiry, journey mapping, participatory design, and usability testing

  • Have 2+ years experience conducting accessibility-focused research, and a working knowledge of related recruiting and vendor management best practices

  • Experience leading research at different parts of the product development process, from discovery to delivery

  • You are comfortable with the logistical challenges and workflows of recruiting for research

  • You are an expert communicator and storyteller, with the ability to hold your own in a meeting and present research findings with a customer-centric perspective

  • You are ambitious, meticulous, and able to manage multiple projects at a time

  • Experience with SQL, Qualtrics, remote testing tools, or experiment design a plus
