“Five years. Four cities. Three countries. Too many incredible teams, clients, memories and personal growth moments to count. One mission that’s never been more important – to bring everyone the inspiration to create a life they love.”

—Brittany Mohr,
North America Segment Lead

“Joining Pinterest without leaving my kitchen has been a peculiar and incredible ride. With all the tools in place for success as a new Pinployee, I was able to hit the ground sprinting, even in this new, fully remote world. Pinterest has a start up feel – a lot has yet to be defined, nothing is set in stone, and you can be a key part of shaping future strategies, structures and even product features that will truly impact the company’s growth. I feel comfortable bringing my whole self to work, and can learn and develop with a diverse and talented team/community.”

Partner Manager

“One of my favorite things about life at Pinterest is how discovery and exploration are honored, respected, and celebrated. Much like the experience a Pinner might have using the app, I get the chance to appreciate and live out the processes of asking questions, seeking new ways of doing things, trying something out, which then leads me to something else, and another, and another… all in the spirit and with the purpose of bringing people inspiration to create a life they love!”

Ashley Guzman, Technical Recruiter

“In Recruiting, our product is people – the talent that will be making decisions and writing the many lines of code behind the inspiring experience that Pinners see daily. I love helping connect a candidate to a role where they can use their unique set of experiences, passion, and background to help Pinners create a life they love. I’m especially inspired every day by the opportunity to not only change a candidate’s career, but change their life by placing them in their dream job. I believe that happy candidates lead to happy Pinployees which leads to happy Pinners.”

Technical Recruiter

Deepak Agarwal, Head of Content & Discovery

“A major benefit of working at Pinterest is our data. More than 300 billion Pins are saved each month by 475+ million people. This data powers a sophisticated search system, and our content organization produces strong engagement. Pinterest is one of the only places where people don’t mind seeing ads, since they facilitate inspiration to action, making Pinner’s goals more tangible.”
