Hello, I’m Sean Gaffney

Engineering Manager - Design Systems, Etsy

People are my passion. As a manager, I'm responsible for a team of people, and my goal is to support and push those people to perform their best. To do their most meaningful work. To stay mentally, physically, and emotionally healthy. My focus is growing individuals, whether junior or senior, because a happy, fulfilled person is a beautiful thing. And incidentally, those people happen to be really great employees.

Personal Goal for 2017:
I'm in the process of designing a backpack and have the goal of getting a prototype together by year's end. Hold me accountable, ok?
