“With a strong talent pool and a growing technology sector in Ireland, Etsy is excited to expand the Dublin team and welcome new talent and fresh perspectives,” said Laudine Vallarta, Etsy’s global head of talent acquisition.

Etsy, which has 4.7m active sellers and 90.7m active buyers, launched its Irish operation back in 2013. It first set up in the Digital Hub before moving to a dedicated space on Strand Street.

The company has opened many of its roles to remote candidates and employees can apply to be fully or partially remote.

The company said that while offices have remained closed throughout the pandemic, it continues to invest in their physical spaces, adapting them for a safe and collaborative future.

In terms of development work, Etsy said it ships code “early and often using pioneering continuous deployment system”. Engineers who work at the company primarily code in PHP and JavaScript, but also use Java, Go, and Swift.

The company also said it has provided resources for employees and contractors, prioritising pay continuity, safety, mental health and the ability to care for their families during the Covid-19 pandemic.

It also said it has a long-standing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. In a blog post, Etsy’s global head of people and strategy, Toni Thompson, outlined the company’s lofty social impact goals.

Some of its 2021 targets include doubling the percentage of US employees who “identify as Black, Latinx or Native American” by 2023 and ensuring at least 50pc of Etsy’s SME suppliers are owned by women, minorities or veterans by 2022.
