  • Build and improve machine learning models and backend systems that underlay ads delivery and advertiser interfaces to maximize value for Pinners, Partners and Pinterest.
  • Run ads delivery experiments that either explore advertiser problems or that validate your solutions to said problems.
  • Drive multi-functional collaboration with peers and partners across the company to identify and solve advertiser problems that stretch across many areas.

What we’re looking for:

  • MS or PhD degree in Computer Science, Statistics or related field.
  • 6+ years of industry experience with related background in Monetization, and Ads Delivery funnel.
  • 2+ years of experience leading projects/teams.
