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. Etsy, Inc.'s 'house of brands' portfolio has expanded to now include four individually distinct ecommerce brands - Etsy, fashion resale marketplace Depop, musical instrument marketplace Reverb, and Brazil-based handmade goods marketplace Elo7. 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 the Director, People Analytics, you will be responsible for using data to shed light on key challenges or opportunities to attract, hire, retain, and develop top talent across the globe. This role requires a deep passion for learning new skills and techniques, a keen eye for detail, and a gift for looking at data and explaining insights. Do you find joy in solving problems and telling visual stories with data? If so, this could be the perfect match.

This is a full-time position located (eventually) in Brooklyn, reporting to the VP, People and dotted line to the Sr. Director, Global Talent Acquisition. Etsy offers three different work modes to meet the variety of needs and preferences of our team: Flex mode for candidates who are comfortable traveling to an office location 2+ times per week, Remote mode, and Office-based mode.

  • Manage, mentor, and grow an Analytics Analyst on the People Team and Analytics Manager on the Talent Acquisition team.
  • Transform raw data into meaningful and impactful analysis characterized by strong data governance, technique clarity, and clear documentation
  • Routinely seek and share insights to the Talent Acquisition and People teams as well as key stakeholders in the business that makes us better able to serve the Etsy employee community and leadership.
  • 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.

Ideally you'll bring:

  • At least 10 years of proven experience as a people analytics professional with at least 2 years of people management experience.
  • Experience working with sensitive and confidential people and talent acquisition data and core people team surveys
  • Experience presenting to senior leadership teams, with strong visual storytelling skills that can put data into actionable insights.
