Etsy is a global creative commerce platform. We build markets, services and economic opportunity for creative entrepreneurs.

Within our markets, millions of people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods. We also offer a wide range of Seller Services and tools that help creative entrepreneurs start, manage and scale their businesses. Our mission is to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world, and we're committed to using the power of business to strengthen communities and empower people.


Why join us?
  • We are the world's largest marketplace for handmade goods — We have 1.8 million active sellers and 30.6 million active buyers on our platform. We are a product that's purpose-built, designed specially for DIY artists and DIY art buyers. This differentiates us from other marketplaces like Amazon and Ebay, who haven't been able to capture the same audience that we have.

  • We're a mature company where you can still have impact — Since Etsy was founded in 2005, we've been able to find amazing product-market fit, which has allowed us to grow into a 800-person company processing $2.84 billion worth of gross merchandise sales each year. We've expanded internationally: we have offices in New York, Berlin, Dublin, London, Paris, Melbourne, San Francisco, and Toronto. This means you'll have plenty of opportunity to work on things at scale and move around the company to gain experience in different fields. At the same time, our engineering team is still small enough where you'll get plenty of ownership and impact.

  • We're a mission-driven and socially conscious company — We're deeply committed to our mission: reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. If this is something that appeals to you, then you'll be a great fit. Working at Etsy means you can directly affect the lives of millions of people. Whether you create a new product feature, write a blog post or help someone open a shop, your work has an impact on someone’s livelihood and fosters direct, meaningful connections throughout the Etsy community. You'll see our values reflected not just in our product, but also in our workplace culture, where we try to emphasize transparency, mindfulness, and humaneness.

Technical Challenges

Our challenge is to building a world-class, two-sided e-commerce platform that scales to tens of millions of users and drives us toward our mission of doing business for good.

Projects you might work on
  • Improving search — We're constantly experimenting on our search experience to drive sales or working with our data scientists to surface the best items to the right people at the right times.

  • Google Shopping and automatic campaign management — We're currently building the infrastructure to syndicate our entire product catalog to Google Shopping and automatically manage campaigns for Etsy Sellers.

  • Seamless and secure checkout — We're building a seamless and safe checkout experience, and then processing payments and distributing funds to Etsy sellers across regions and currencies.

  • Automatic management of HTTPS and SSL for sellers — We're allowing sellers to build their own custom website on a custom domain, then automatically managing HTTPS and SSL on their behalf. Read more about our project here.

  • Experimenting with SEO — We're also applying the concepts of A/B experimentation to the dark magic that is SEO. Read more here.
