You may know Etsy as the global marketplace for unique goods, from enamel pins to custom wedding invitations and handcrafted furniture, but we're more than that. We're a values-driven company with a mission to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. That means we're committed to using the power of business for good through our platform, our members, our employees, and the communities we serve around the world. Some call this "business as unusual," but around here it's just business.

At Etsy, you can do the work you love, be yourself, and make an impact in the lives of millions. Whether you code a new feature, write an Instagram post, or educate sellers, your work helps entrepreneurs build businesses powered by their creativity.

From our Brooklyn HQ to our offices around the globe, Etsy's values are woven into everything we do, from our advocacy and sustainability efforts to our progressive parental leave policy and paid volunteer time for employees. We offer competitive benefits, balanced working hours, and a culture of continuous learning.

We hire talent for our offices in New York, Hudson NY, San Francisco CA, Toronto ON, London UK, Dublin IRL, Paris FR, Berlin DE, and Delhi IN.


We want our employees to thrive at work. We offer training, programs, retreats, coaching, and online resources so that employees have access to tools and skills that help them develop professionally.

We believe that diversity of backgrounds, thoughts, and experience brings out the best in all of us. We aim to have inclusivity be a way of life at Etsy. We stand out as one of the very few public companies whose board and executive teams are both 50% female; and, we are proud that the percentage of women in engineering roles at Etsy is significantly higher than most publicly-available benchmarks.

Additionally, we want to support and enable parents, regardless of their gender, to play equal roles in building successful companies and nurturing their families. In 2016, we introduced a 26-week gender-blind parental leave policy that is available to all Etsy employees globally.


At Etsy, in addition to nurturing our marketplace, we are committed to driving a positive economic, social, and ecological impact. We believe we can be a great business and a great corporate citizen.

  • Economic Impact: We like to say that creating economic opportunity is our day job. We are giving creative entrepreneurs around the world the opportunity to earn a living doing what they love. In 2017, our marketplace generated $3.25 billion in sales for 2 million sellers around the world.

  • Social Impact: Our goal is to enable equitable access to the opportunities we create. We work hard to nurture a culture of diversity and inclusivity at Etsy, and we want to meaningfully increase the representation of underrepresented groups.

  • Ecological Impact: We are focused on reducing our carbon footprint and have ambitious targets in place. For example, we have set a goal of powering our global operations on 100% electricity and to run zero waste operations by 2020.
