Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)
  • We have a dynamic, energized, and experienced leadership team and Board, focused on delivering results and enhancing shareholder value
  • Etsy has experienced significant recent growth: our user base has multiplied over the past 3 years, in 2020 we were added to the S&P 500, and we believe we're in the early stages of our opportunity
  • Alongside the Etsy marketplace, and in addition to our acquisition of Reverb - a US-based global marketplace for musical instruments and equipment in 2019 - we've also expanded Etsy's House of Brands portfolio in 2021 with the recent acquisition of Depop - a global fashion resale marketplace - and Elo7 - a Brazil-based marketplace for handmade and unique items
  • Support the development and implementation of an ERM framework, including setting and maintaining risk appetite, risk tolerance, inherent/residual risk calculation, risk identification, quantification, prioritization, and overall risk mitigation strategy across Etsy and its subsidiary marketplaces
  • Develop policies, procedures, training and playbooks on the management of risks, which are clear and tailored for the audience, to ensure risk management processes are embedded and understood across Etsy and the House of Brands
  • Act as a trusted advisor across Etsy and the House of Brands, providing clear and risk-based guidance as appropriate
  • Assist in the management of ERM tools, including our centralized third party Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) tool, which houses risk inventories, risk assessments and risk reporting information
  • Coordinate risk & control self-assessment (“RCSA”) processes on an ongoing basis
  • Provide review and challenge of the effectiveness of mitigating measures employed by the first line of defense teams within the business

  • In conjunction with the Director of ERM, advise senior leadership on the evolution and iteration of Etsy's ERM framework
  • Willingness to travel to our Headquarters in Brooklyn quarterly and a willingness to work primarily in EST
  • Of course, this is just a sample of the kinds of work this role will require! You should assume that your role will encompass other tasks, too, and that your job duties and responsibilities may change from time to time at Etsy's discretion, or otherwise applicable with local law
  • 6+ years of risk management experience either working in-house or consulting. Experience working in e-commerce/tech/fintech a plus
  • Significant experience in risk governance and in operational risk management methodologies and techniques on risk identification and assessment (e.g., internal and external data collection, risk assessments including risk & control self-assessments, business process mapping, key performance indicator / key risk indicator setting, performance of top down risk assessment processes and scenario analysis exercises)
  • Self-starter and who can put their mark on new and existing initiatives
  • Sound judgment, logical critical thinking skills, and the ability to operate confidently in ambiguous and unfamiliar situations
  • You have an ability to create risk management related material which is proportionate and tailored to the business, in order to drive increased effectiveness of our ERM Program
  • You have strong experience and are comfortable working cross-functionally with numerous teams (legal, operations, engineering, product, etc) and you have experience in building consensus, operating independently, and accomplishing through influence
  • You are an excellent communicator/writer (and you write in plain language). You have experience communicating complex topics or themes in different formats (including documents and presentations) in a way people can understand
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
