Andrew Peterson's Profile

About

Hi, my name is Andrew Peterson and I worked for Etsy for 4 years focused on developing technology for Etsy but no longer work for Etsy.

I came to Etsy by way of Africa where I was working on health information management systems in Tanzania and where I was first exposed to the global power of Etsy. Entrepreneurs in Africa used Etsy to sell their craft to buyers from other parts of the world they traditionally had no other possible way of connecting with. I saw that Etsy was changing the lives of these entrepreneurs all the way in Africa and was struck by the potential that the Etsy model had to change the way our global economy works. I knew I had to come to Etsy to help make that a reality.
