Artsy’s mission is to expand the art market to support more artists and art in the world. Artsy has created the world’s largest two-sided art marketplace, offering more than 1 million works by 100,000 artists from 4,000 leading galleries, fairs, auction houses, and institutions across 190 countries.

Artsy Values

Artsy has five core values that inform how we work as a team.

For the Love of Art

We have relentless curiosity, empathy, and passion for collectors, artists, and the art market. We are here to make the art world more fair and welcoming.

Own Our Outcomes

We are all individual owners of Artsy’s shared success. We are resourceful and resilient, and to get the job done, we each take responsibility for our outcomes.

Lead with Openness

We trust in our teammates. We seek diverse perspectives, communicate authentically, and act with integrity. A more open art world starts with us.

Transform Together

Our mission asks us to challenge the status quo. We embrace feedback, learning, and change so that we can transform our industry, our company, and ourselves.

Impact Over Perfection

Using both art and science, we debate and decide swiftly and iterate on our plans as we learn. To make the biggest impact, we prioritize speed and clarity of action over perfection.

Artsy Perks

Comprehensive Benefit Options

Supporting the health and well-being of our employees and their families is a top Artsy priority. We offer top-quality healthcare options, including life insurance, parental care, short- and long-term disability, and more.

Flexible Time Off

We empower Artsy employees to take time off based on their desires and needs that matter most to them.

Additional Benefits

Artsy offers 401k retirement plans, flexible spending accounts (FSA), health savings accounts (HSA), and commuter benefits. In addition, employees can receive free add-on benefits for mental, physical, and fertility health through Ginger, Headspace, Aaptiv, Quit, Genius, and Carrot.

Artsy Events

We strive to provide engaging opportunities and internal programming for our 200+ global team members, in order to foster new relationships and build upon our collaborative community. A few examples include: happy hours, holiday parties, global "All Hands" meetings, "Artsy Salon" (a yearly exhibition of our team's creativity), attendance to art world events, and more.

Learning & Development

Opportunities to expand your professional and personal development through Artsy-led workshops, language courses, mentoring and leadership programs, L&D classes, and more.

Artsy stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and all marginalized communities that have for too long faced injustice and inequity. While Artsy has made efforts to broaden and democratize the art world, our efforts have not been enough. We recognize we can no longer simply be “not racist” in our marketplace and our workplace, but must strive to be actively anti-racist. To best serve the community and the legacy of art, we must do more to actively support and represent more diverse and marginalized artists and business owners.

As a next step, Artsy will be committing our time and resources to a number of initiatives, including:

Create a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable team.

We are reconstructing our hiring processes and setting ambitious diversity goals for our recruiting practices across all roles and global offices, as well as reviewing our cultural and HR practices to ensure all our team members are supported and treated equitably in their Artsy experience. We will hold our team accountable to concrete measures of success in our company’s objectives and key results.
