Solution Presenter: Etsy

Sonia left her career in the financial industry during an economic downturn to join the tech scene in SF, and has never looked back. Sonia has been working on products of all shapes and sizes at Etsy for the past 10 years and loves the nuances of building for marketplaces. Sonia now leads Product for Etsy’s mobile apps - Buy on Etsy and Sell on Etsy - focusing on their most valuable and engaged customers. When she’s not nerding out over how native technology can solve complex customer problems, she’s probably traveling to places with spicy food or hitting the slopes with her husband. Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies. These items fall under a wide range of categories, including jewelry, bags, clothing, home décor and furniture, toys, and art.
