Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world. As an Etsy employee, you’ll tackle unique problems alongside talented coworkers committed to Keeping Commerce Human. We're large enough that you'll focus on meaningful, complex challenges, but small enough that you can make a rewarding impact.
The Knowledge Base team is a group of engineers, researchers, designers, data scientists, and product managers that are building an in-depth understanding of the unique world of Etsy. Our goal is to build, collect, and model product metadata to make sense of millions of unique items and users, enabling Etsy’s teams to craft meaningful, relevant experiences. We are responsible for describing, collecting, combining and serving product metadata to our internal partners.
On the Engineering side, we are responsible for constructing and maintaining the systems necessary to store, transform, and serve product metadata. Our stack is cloud-native, JVM-based, and relatively new. We are currently working on completing the initial version of our system and making enhancements for our customers as we start our first integrations.
