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.

Pinterest is looking for an experienced site reliability engineer to build and run our large-scale distributed systems. As an SRE on the Data & Storage team, you will design, build and monitor our applications and infrastructure that handle billions of monthly page views and petabytes of data as Pinterest continues to grow and scale. 

What you’ll do:

  • Design, build, and operate across a large-scale data and storage technology stack 
  • Develop software solutions to enable operability of large scale distributed systems handling petabytes of data
  • Manage capacity and performance to help scale our infrastructure both on public and private clouds around the world

What we’re looking for:

  • Strong knowledge of Linux/Unix/BSD internals and experience working with open source software (e.g. MySQL, Hadoop, Envoy, HAProxy, Nginx)
  • Experience with technologies such as Kubernetes, Tensorflow, ElasticSearch, ZooKeeper, HBase, Hadoop, Memcache and Kafka with a focus on reliability, automation, operability and performance
  • 2+ years of experience with programming languages (Python, Golang, Ruby, etc.)
  • Infrastructure as code a plus (e.g. Terraform, Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Salt, Fabric, Docker, etc)
  • Bonus points if experienced with deploying web apps to cloud infrastructure (AWS, etc.) and working with distributed, service-oriented architecture

More about contract roles at Pinterest:

  • This is a temporary contract position at Pinterest. As such, the contractor who fills this role will be employed either by our staffing partner (PRO Unlimited) or by an agency supplier partner, and not an employee of Pinterest.
  • All interviews will be scheduled and/or conducted by the Pinterest assignment manager. When a finalist has been selected, PRO Unlimited or the agency supplier partner will extend the offer and provide assignment details including duration, benefits options and onboarding details.

We’re growing rapidly throughout Latin America and Mexico! Check out our open positions and learn more about Pinterest’s exciting opportunities in these regions.
