    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 review in 2020, consistent with prior reviews, 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.
