Etsy is expanding and is looking for employees in Mexico City
The buying and selling company will seek to contract positions within the product and engineering areas.
Rachana Kumar, Etsy vice president of engineering and CEO of Etsy Mexico , commented in a statement that "with its vibrant and growing technological development, Mexico City is an ideal place for Etsy to build new roots and expand its workforce to the level global. We are proud to welcome new talent from the Mexico City tech community to the Etsy family. "
There are over 90 million items for sale on the Etsy Marketplace, several of which are handmade or personalized. These items are made to order by more than 4 million vendors. Most of them are women and small entrepreneurs , which makes Etsy one of the platforms with the greatest access to female entrepreneurship in the world.
The technology company that operates online businesses connecting millions of buyers and sellers and creatives around the world enables anyone to turn a creative passion into an economic opportunity by being able to list their first item for as little as 20 cents on the dollar.
