Etsy’s ambitious mission—to reimagine commerce to build a more fulfilling and lasting world—is something its community of buyers, sellers, employees, and partners ardently believe in. The company prides itself on running a triple bottom line business and demonstrates that doing so is a key way to grow successfully over the long term.
Founded in 2005, Etsy operates markets that allow millions of people around the world to connect—both online and offline—to make, sell, and buy unique goods. Etsy’s global community of entrepreneurs, shoppers, manufacturers, and employees are the heart and soul of its business, and with more than 40 million listed items, Etsy has something for everyone.
“We talk about diversity openly as a company. I was so impressed that Etsy employed so many women, people of color, and nonbinary people. I see so much more diversity around me, compared to any other place I’ve been.”
“What’s distinct about Etsy is that there’s a sense of openness and transparency. People trust each other and assume good intentions. It’s a very kind and generous culture—that stems from the company’s social values.”
