Pinterest is a metric-driven company, not only do we use metrics to make our decisions, but our state of the art machine learning depends on accurate metrics.  This role is dedicated to making sure that the metrics on the iOS client are accurate.  We are building the core of this team in Toronto, where you’ll be working with San Francisco teammates on larger projects.

  • Enthusiasm for collaborating with a diverse array of partners, including product managers and engineers across a variety of platforms and teams, data engineers, release services, and analysts.
  • Enthusiasm for “behind the scenes” work that is a high priority for Pinterest, but will not be seen by users.
