Promoting company values and increasing employee happiness are top priorities at Etsy. Etsy’s values are:
• We are a mindful, transparent, and humane business.
• We plan and build for the long term.
• We value craftsmanship in all we make.
• We believe fun should be part of everything we do.
• We keep it real, always.
We collaborate with various teams across the company on internal design projects to express these values and make Etsy’s office a fun, welcoming, and delightful place to work. No wall or corner is left undesigned–from our laser-cut conference room signs that follow a naming system of combining band names with food (some favorites: “Ace of Boullebaisse,” “Fleetwood Mac ‘n Cheese,” and “New Kids on the Baklava”) to large-scale, hand-painted office murals.
We’re continuously creating Etsy schwag for employees to take home, give to friends, or hand out at events. This includes thank-you cards, stickers, buttons, team T-shirts, and Boy Scout-inspired badges for individual teams. Even our security guard’s badge was thoughtfully-designed and laser-cut from wood; and the armbands for Etski, our annual company ski trip, were screen printed, trimmed, and sewn in-house by our employees.
