This Pride Month, we sat down with Stella Marques, Pinterest Sr. Content Partnerships Specialist, who also co-leads Pride@, our Pinclusion Group for LGBTQ+ employees and allies. In this Life at Pinterest Blog article, Stella is sharing more about…
Life at Pinterest
We believe that everyone should be able to discover things that inspire them. It’s a higher purpose and concrete challenge that our employees embody every day.
Our mission is to bring everyone the inspiration to create a life they love
Every single person, no matter where they live, what they look like or what their interests are, should be able to discover ideas that move them. Only Pinterest has the accessibility and scale to inspire this inclusivity.
Inspiration is showing people what’s possible and giving them the self-confidence to act. It’s about discovery + emotion + action.
This is more than simply helping people do things, it’s about helping them do the things that truly make them fulfilled.
Our core values bring Pinterest to life
Put Pinners first
We are relentlessly focused on Pinners’ diverse needs so that all our product, business and policy decisions are centered on their wellbeing. We actively invite Pinners to the conversation, so that we’re creating with them, not just for them.
Aim for extraordinary
We build extraordinary products and experiences because we start with a higher bar. We push ourselves—and each other—to bring the courage, craft, and quality of execution needed to win big.
We each take responsibility for creating a culture of belonging, we value individual perspectives and life experiences. Divergent thinking, honest debate, and real-time feedback are understood as the fuel for innovation and growth. By extending ourselves to others we build strong connections and support the well-being of our people.
Act as one
We put energy into helping others succeed—and our wins belong to the entire team. We are resolute in our commitment to eliminate silos in how we work. Once a decision is made, we enthusiastically rally behind a chosen direction.
Win or learn
To achieve our mission and grow, we must constantly evolve. We make big bets and take smart risks to increase our chances of step-change results. Whether we succeed or stumble, we ensure the learning is never lost by working hard to actively bring the lessons to our next effort.

What would an in-real-life version of Pinterest look like? Every year, Pinterest employees get together and create just that with our internal conference called Knit Con, where we take two days to put down our computers and teach each other new skills to build connectivity and inspiration. In 2022, we held our 7th annual Knit Con.
