Last week while visiting NYC, I went over to Brooklyn to take a tour of the Etsy offices and Etsy Labs, which are both located in The Clocktower Building. Etsy is an amazing online marketplace for people to buy and sell handmade items. A whole economy has evolved around Etsy, whose vision is to “Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade”.
My wonderful tour guides were Chad Dickerson, who formerly ran Yahoo! Brickhouse and recently moved to NYC to become CTO of Etsy and Bre Pettis who produces video for Etsy and has a TV pilot “History Hacker” that airs on The History Channel this Friday at 8pm and midnight.
While touring Etsy, I shot a few photos, here’s the full gallery.
Oh and if you would like to work a cool place like Etsy, they’re currently hiring.
