About the Team

The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, and that the work we do is part of a larger creative culture represented by the hundreds of thousands of inspired artists and designers who make Etsy such a unique marketplace. We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. We believe in measuring everything, taking advantage of our pioneering continuous deployment system to ship code early and often, and a blameless culture based on trust and a commitment to learning. The Marketing Technology initiative is a brand new, highly specialized and visible group within the product engineering organization at Etsy. The teams within this initiative focus on enabling both buyer and seller marketing programs such as Customer Relationship Marketing, Performance Marketing, Product Marketing and Brand Marketing.
