    Talent Acquisition and Development

    Recruitment

    Talent Acquisition

    Our Talent Acquisition team is focused on bringing top diverse talent to Etsy. The team manages the applications that come through our Careers page, and also actively engage qualified candidates. The Talent team also attends various conferences focused on diversity and inclusion that serve underrepresented populations. We also at times host recruiting events within these conferences to ensure we are networking and meeting as many candidates as possible to continue to support our diversity hiring goals. All interviewers are trained on hiring with diversity in mind to ensure we are mitigating any potential bias in our interview processes.

    We strive to create a consistent and positive experience for every candidate interviewed at Etsy.

    Development

    We are committed to ensuring fair and equitable opportunities at Etsy, which means that all employees should have a clear understanding of their functional responsibilities and performance expectations. Systematic performance tools help ensure that decision-making processes are objective and unbiased, while Etsy's Competency Matrix provides clear and concise expectations for each employee level and guides performance assessments and career development.

    Development
    Retention

    Retention

    We want to ensure that employees are fairly and consistently recognized for their hard work and valuable contributions. Great work is appreciated and rewarded in many different ways at Etsy, including but not limited to compensation. We continuously conduct assessments to ensure that compensation is staying competitive and fair relative to performance. We review factors like age, race, and gender in our review process to monitor for fairness.

    Compensation Philosophy

    Competitive, Market- Based Compensation

    Etsy has developed total cash pay bands (base pay + bonus) by matching our jobs to competitor jobs in the market using local market data. This data is refreshed quarterly to stay current. We reassess our roles considering that markets, competition, and associated salary expectations can change rapidly.

    Pay for Performance and Variable Pay

    Etsy has a rigorous and intentional performance management program. We are well equipped to reward performance with compensation in a results-driven way. Our bonus program gives everyone in the company the opportunity to realize additional performance-based pay when an employee and the company have performed successfully. Our goal is to link employee contributions to our success, and associated rewards, in a tangible way.

    Equity and Employee Engagement

    Equity is critical to Etsy’s investment in our employees and our employees’ investment in the long-term success of Etsy. Equity is awarded to virtually all employees based on market data.

    Equitable Compensation

    Etsy commissions a third-party consulting firm to conduct a review of pay equity on a biennial basis.The most recent view in 2022, consistent with prior years review, revealed no unexplained pay gaps adverse to women or employees from other marginalized genders, or non-white employees

    We are committed to ensuring that fair and consistent pay practices are applied across our organization. We take strides to ensure that pay is internally equitable, fair, and accurately differentiated. We align pay for each employee’s position with the responsibilities, knowledge, complexity, and impact of the role within the company. To that end, we have created guidance, specific to ratings and pay, that is part of our performance management program and conduct regular monitoring of compensation outcomes related to performance.
