Employer Summary

Employer Benefits
We don’t live work/life, we live life.

We strongly believe in nurturing a fulfilling and healthy life for all of our employees. Rather than framing it in the typical way of work/life balance, we encourage employees to live full and fulfilling lives in every aspect and to bring their whole selves to work, never having to wear one hat and take off another.

Etsy has a generous PTO program, unlimited sick days, and all employees are given 40 hours per year of paid volunteer time. Etsy also provides 26 weeks of fully-paid parental leave to all employees, regardless of gender.

We offer a comprehensive health and welfare package, and the vast majority of our employees participate in our basic medical offering, which is 100% paid by Etsy for employees and their dependents.

Etsy offices are dog-friendly and many employees bring their dogs to work every day and to their meetings.

Our Brooklyn facilities have a Breathing Room, which is a dedicated space where employees can go when they need quiet. We offer weekly EtsYoga, Guided Meditation, and Etsy Stretch in the Breathing Room, open to all employees.

  • Maternity & Paternity Leave(14 comments)

    Such a wonderful opportunity to take time such an extended period off work with our newborn without having to worry about our finances changing.

  • Health Insurance(9 comments)

    Good health insurance with a relatively low co-pay.

  • Work From Home(6 comments)

    Good about working from home sporadically, pre-covid there wasn't as much flexibility around working set days from home.

Amazing benefits! No premiums on healthcare, inclusive 6 months parental leave, competitive vacation. Paid sabbatical! Lots of perks like gym discounts and mental health programs.

Great benefits all around — most impressive for me has been the six months paid parental leave (gender blind). Also has really generous vacation time, sabbatical, great insurance, and much more.

One of the best things about Etsy is that they offer six months paid parental leave for mothers and fathers alike.

Etsy has the best benefits & culture when compared across any other tech company!

Current Employee

Best: includes things that most companies are just catching up to, like mental health care, career coaching, and insurance for medical conditions regardless of gender identity. Worst: vision plan leaves much to be desired, and bonuses can feel paltry once taxed.

6-week paid sabbatical after five years at Etsy is a really motivating benefit. Also, 26-week paid parental leave (gender-blind) also motivates me to stay with Etsy, even when I'm not anywhere near starting a family. Our vacation time off isn't quite as good as other companies (20 days), but we also have 40 Volunteer Time Off hours per year, and unlimited Sick Time Off.
