Etsy is seeking a Senior Data Scientist to join our Analytics team and partner with Product stakeholders to increase Loyalty and enhance the shopping experience for Buyers.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Senior Manager of Buyer Experience Product Analytics. For this role, we are considering candidates based in Mexico who are either remote, flex, or office-based. Etsy offers different work modes to meet the variety of needs and preferences of our team.

What’s this team like at Etsy?

Data scientists at Etsy use rigorous methods to generate insights that inform product, engineering, and business decisions across the company. We collaborate with partner teams through all stages of development: actively uncovering opportunity areas, crafting experiments to test hypotheses, analyzing the impact of our efforts, and highlighting takeaways

Learning new skills and techniques is not only a requirement but a perk of the job! We are always looking for opportunities to grow. Our mission is to guide our partner teams with data and insights and tell the story of how we attract and retain our users — to teams, to senior management, and to the community

What does the day-to-day look like?

  • Work closely with product, engineering, design and research teammates on our Buyer Experience product team to create experiences that grow Buyer loyalty
  • Play a meaningful role in deciding how we can best engage Etsy buyers through analysis of behavioral and transactional data
  • Design and analyze rigorous experiments, help teams set great hypotheses, and deliver robust analysis of experiment results
  • Transform raw data into meaningful and impactful analysis characterized by strong data governance, technique transparency, and clear documentation
  • Raise the skill level of the entire analytics team through the creation of outstanding work, mentorship, and the introduction of better practices, processes, and tools
  • Of course, this is just a sample of the kinds of work this role will require! You should assume that your role will encompass other tasks, too, and that your job duties and responsibilities may change from time to time at Etsy’s discretion, or otherwise applicable with local law.


Qualities that will help you thrive in this role are:

  • Fluent in English
  • 4+ years of experience as a data scientist or data analyst during which you extracted insights from large datasets
  • Experience guiding product teams to identify high-impact opportunities, set meaningful goals against key outcomes, and drive decisions
  • Deep understanding of experimentation theory and practice
  • Mastery of SQL, and experience with R/Python and other scripting/automation techniques; bonus points for experience with a BigData ecosystem and Looker, Tableau, or other data visualization software
  • You love trying new analytical approaches to answer nuanced questions and advancing your skills is important to you
  • You distill highly complex problems into narratives that are concise, actionable, and memorable, and express your recommendations with both conviction and finesse
  • You’ve acted as a mentor, guiding others to make their own work better and more efficient
