Paulie, we will miss your dance moves! Good luck beyond Etsy, as you pursue your endeavors.
Paul, aka Paulie D, aka OhPauleez, works on the engineering team here at Etsy — on the infrastructure and framework, in particular. He’s known for being a cheerful early riser and for having some serious dance moves. Even though he lives in Philly, he pops into the Brooklyn office to work with some regularity.
Fun facts about Paulie
- Paul is his real name, but we at Etsy call him Paulie.
- Attended college at night during high school and graduated early, just like Doogie Howser.
- Gave up being a vegetarian to cook more Italian food and honor his heritage.
- He got carpal tunnel because all he was doing was playing music and typing code.
- For Paulie, anytime is a good time to dance.
And now, some awkward photos!
Etsy has had quite a growth spurt in the past year, and we have the awkward pictures to prove it. We’ve been posting a series of About Us pieces to help you get to know the Etsy admin (and since many of us work remotely, for the admin to get to know each other!). You’ve seen the admin badge, and maybe you’re a bit curious about the person behind it! For more on Etsy’s mission and about the company, please see our About page (the link is in the little blue footer of every Etsy page).
Below are some items from a few of Paulie’s favorite shops.
