About Pinterest:  

Millions of people across the world come to Pinterest to find new ideas every day. It’s where they get inspiration, dream about new possibilities and plan for what matters most. Our mission is to help those people find their inspiration and create a life they love. In your role, you’ll be challenged to take on work that upholds this mission and pushes Pinterest forward. You’ll grow as a person and leader in your field, all the while helping Pinners make their lives better in the positive corner of the internet.

As Pinterest is looking to expand in the native content space, we are looking for a passionate & talented Android Engineer to join the Pinner Creation team to help us build the next phase of Pinterest for Pinners, bridging the gap from consuming and collecting content to creating and contributing their own to Pinterest. This will directly feed into our entire Create Team’s mission of building and fostering communities that inspire others to create a life they love. You will be working in a small, fast-paced team and will be tackling deeply impactful user product problems that will shape the future of Pinterest moving forward.

What you’ll do:

  • Build product features to make creating on Pinterest easier, with a focus on the Pinner perspective, that will help transform Pinterest’s native content landscape
  • Prototype through fast iteration to explore new ways to build community and inspire 478 million Pinners to connect with one another across the globe
  • Partner closely with Design, Product Management, and other Engineering leaders within Create and across Pinterest to identify the highest-impact opportunities to accelerate the product and user experience
  • Take ownership of critical outcomes, product features, and driving projects from beginning to end, while delivering on software experiences and solutions of the highest quality

What we’re looking for:

  • 2+ years of experience building Android applications on customer-facing products
  • 2+ years of object-oriented application development experience
  • Proficiency of UI development on Android applications in Java or Kotlin
  • Solid knowledge on multi-threading, memory management, and caching on mobile applications
  • Strong communication skills and great product sense
  • Full stack experience is a bonus!
