Why we are in business

Our Purpose

We exist to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Etsy was founded in June 2005 in an apartment in Brooklyn, New York to fill a need for an online community where crafters, artists and makers could sell their handmade and vintage goods and craft supplies.

We are building a human, authentic and community-centric global and local marketplace. By building and supporting this people-powered economy, we hope to inspire global business practices that are sustainable, responsible and profitable. We hope to make the world a little more like Etsy.

How we operate

Our Practices

We strive to operate our business in a way that maximizes benefit to all life impacted, and to share our practices to inspire other companies to do the same.



Going beyond monetary compensation to provide exceptional care for the people powering your business; including healthy food offerings, extraordinary office amenities, full health coverage, education subsidies, an inspiring work environment, etc.


Employee Growth

An ecosystem for workers to constantly grow, learn, utilize their strengths, and advance towards their personal and professional goals.



A purpose-driven company culture that engages team members in accomplishing the company mission, fosters co-worker collaboration, and hires people deeply aligned with the company mission and values.



A workplace that focuses on creating freedom and minimizing fear by reducing the centralization of power, supports self-management, and encourages radical transparency, inclusion, feedback, and fairness.


Customer Care

Demonstrating genuine care for your customers through a graceful purchasing process, extraordinary support, quality guarantees, and other acts of kindness that leave your customers remarking about the experience.


Water & Waste

Thriving to achieve zero waste through recycling and reusing initiatives, composting and water conservation, and tracking progress towards set reduction targets.



Earth-friendly materials used to operate the company (i.e. recycled paper) to construct and furnish offices and facilities (i.e. bamboo flooring), and to produce products and their packaging (i.e. biodegradable materials).


Caring Through

Caring for mission-aligned causes by generously sharing business resources such as your products and services, meeting space, excess materials, media exposure, company best practices, and employee time and talent.



Choosing suppliers, distributors and other partners that share your commitment to creating a better world and adhere to clearly defined social and environmental standards.

What we impact

Our Performance


What we look for when hiring

As you’ve probably guessed; Etsy is a place that values individuality and variety. We don’t want you to be like everyone else, we don’t even want you to be like us—we want you to be like you! So write to us, in your own human voice, and tell us what you’re all about and why you’re interested in a role at Etsy. What gets you up in the morning? What excites you? What throws your whole day off and causes you to pull your hair out?

Why you would want to work for our company

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.

Working at Etsy is also a lot of fun. Our culture is grounded in the maker spirit, and we put creativity, community and thoughtfulness into everything we do. We have communal lunches called “Eatsy”, learn from each other at “Etsy School”, and get creative together at the occasional “Crafternoon”. From New York to Melbourne, we’ve built our culture with care.
