Etsy – Promoting Connection & Collaboration in Dublin’s Liberties
9th November 2023
Etsy, Inc. is moving from its current office on Strand Street to One Le Pole Square, 8 Ship Street Little, in Dublin’s Liberties. The company currently has c.100 employees in Ireland, benefitting from the strong talent pool and technology sector in the country. The move represents Etsy’s commitment to Ireland and will provide employees with a space designed to promote connection and collaboration.
The new office offers similar amenities to Etsy’s Brooklyn HQ, along with updated focus work areas, outdoor space, more meeting rooms, and large gathering spaces for employees to connect, all with an Irish twist – drawing inspiration from Irish heritage and local culture in Dublin’s infamous Liberties.
This move coincides with Etsy becoming a signatory of Diversity Charter Ireland on Tuesday, November 7th at its new Dublin office. By becoming a signatory of Diversity Charter Ireland, it demonstrates its ongoing commitment to promoting diversity, equality and inclusion across its business.
Etsy CHRO Kim Seymour shared, “We’re excited to establish Etsy’s new EU home in a space that enables our teams to leverage in-person moments with thoughtful design that facilitates connection and collaboration.
Through the opening of this new office space and Etsy’s signing of the Diversity Charter Ireland, we’re proud to deepen our commitment to our Ireland-based community, and to cultivating a vibrant, diverse workplace in Ireland where employees from all backgrounds can thrive.”
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are deeply embedded into Etsy’s culture and how it operates as an organisation. Etsy publishes its progress and goals annually, working to promote transparency and measurable commitments in DEI.
In Ireland, the company is working toward building a software engineering team with 2x the national benchmark for representation of women and marginalised gender engineers by 2027 (16%) and is tracking ahead of that goal.
