Fact: Every business out there is looking for ways to improve its efficiency.
Whether it’s optimal use of raw materials or human resources, companies are always evaluating and rethinking their operations to ensure the best possible outcomes. If businesses can offer efficient transaction procedures, customers would be satisfied with both quality and speed.
Consider this: The payment process is supposed to be a mostly painless affair, but even at this stage, some companies run into various glitches. As a result, the customer experience is ruined, as is the prospect of brand loyalty.
This is why Etsy—yes, that Etsy—is looking to add a payments staff product marketing manager to its team. If creativity and money matters are right up your alley, this remote job may very well have your name on it.
More on Etsy
If you’ve never bought or sold an item on Etsy, you should definitely give it a try.
Talk about humble roots: Etsy began operating out of a Brooklyn apartment, with business partners Rob Kalin, Chris Maguire, and Haim Schoppik at the helm. When Etsy was launched in 2005, the co-founders presented it as a platform where entrepreneurs could sell their handcrafted products.
The idea caught on, and just two years after its launch, Etsy had about 450,000 registered sellers. Here are some other impressive numbers: In 2007, the platform had $26 million in annual sales and secured another $3 million in venture funding.
In 2013, with former Yahoo! executive Chad Dickerson as CEO, the company began allowing sellers to put up manufactured goods on the platform as well. Though this wasn’t exactly aligned with the DIY spirit that was initially Etsy’s calling card, it turned out to be a great move for the company. The following year, Etsy’s revenue topped $195.6 million.
By the 2020s, Etsy’s revenue had already crossed the billion-dollar mark. By all indications, the company will continue to grow as the market for handmade items keeps powering ahead.
Unsurprisingly, Etsy would love for its customers to have the easiest time with their payments. That’s where you—and this work-from-home job—come in.
