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.

Job Description

We’re looking for a Manager to lead the team responsible for Internal Team Enablement on Trust & Safety, supporting our growing organization in training, documentation, and quality assurance.

In this role you will guide a team of subject matter specialists owning Trust & Safety’s internal resource strategy and execution.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Senior Manager of Trust & Safety Enablement. We’re open to remote hires within all U.S. states except Hawaii and Alaska. Candidate will be expected to work Eastern Standard Time US hours.
