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.

Together, we support a community of millions of creative businesses and their customers.

Etsy is headquartered in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY with additional US offices in Hudson, NY and San Francisco, CA. Globally, Etsy has offices in Toronto, Dublin, London, Berlin, Paris, Melbourne, and Tokyo.

We believe that what’s good for families is good for business.

In April 2016, Etsy announced that we were expanding our paid parental leave benefits for all employees worldwide to 26 weeks, regardless of gender, country of residence, or family circumstance.


Etsy's Living Building Challenge (LBC) Petal certification, the most rigorous sustainability standard for buildings, is the result of extensive, years-long work conducted by various internal and external partner teams in outfitting #EtsyHQ. 

Etsy is the largest LBC Materials Petal-certified commercial building in the world, and the only certified building in New York City.  Etsy is also the only project largely furnished with handmade and micro-manufactured furniture, as we worked closely with makers to source healthier and more sustainable materials. Learn more about our building’s features and achievements on our new Living Building Challenge microsite.

    I have been working at Etsy full-time

    Pros

    lots of people at Etsy are among the kindest i've ever met. the work leads to some interesting problems to solve, the office spaces are really nice, management tends to listen to buyers and sellers when they can. internal promotions are pretty common.

    Cons

    some perks have been recently cut back to cut costs. understandable, but still unfortunate. travel budget is tough for remote employees.

    Advice to Management

    take advantage of longer term employees to make sure that you don't make some of the same mistakes as management did in prior years.

    Interview

    I applied online and a recruiter reached out to me to set up a time to have a phone screen. We agreed upon a date/time but then a day before, he told me he was busy and needed to reschedule. I sent back my availability for the next week. Didn't hear back for a week. I sent a follow up email and provided a few more times. No response...
