There are some companies that are just different, special, and doing something important. Etsy sort of defines that kind of company to me. They are trying to make it possible for creative people to make a living off of the things they make. And in the process, they have built a market where you can find amazing one of kind items that make great gifts or things you can wear with a smile on your face.
Etsy has grown a lot in the past three years and they are in the process of adding a few members of the team to help them deal with all of that growth. Maria Thomas joined earlier this year and is now the CEO. Rob Kalin, founder and the initial CEO, is now Chief Creative Officer. Chad Dickerson recently left Yahoo! and is Etsy’s new CTO.
That’s a killer team. And they have a few more slots on it. The next one up to fill is VP Product. Here’s the job spec.
I am telling you that this is a special company, a fantastic team, and an amazing job. If you are a world class product manager, think hard about doing this. If you want to take the next step, send your resume/CV/linkedin profile to [email protected].
