About Pinterest:

Pinterest brings millions of people the inspiration to create a life they love. To evolve this mission our product and engineering teams need to innovate. The key to understanding how innovation on the product will change our business is through measurement, and the faster we can evaluate these ideas, the faster we can innovate. Experimentation is at the core of this evaluation - and both implicit (obtaining feedback from pinners through their engagement with changes) and explicit (obtaining labels from human evaluators or Pinners on questions about the content or change) signals can be used to evaluate the success of the idea.

Teams within Pinterest run thousands of such experiments each year, but there is a substantial opportunity to improve the value derived from each experiment and the speed at which we unlock this value; impact in this space transforms both the productivity of our teams and the speed of innovation at the company. We are looking for a highly technical Data Scientist who is passionate about driving innovation to join a small team of data scientists to shape and evolve our experimentation tooling and our culture of experimentation.

What you’ll do:

  • Solve key challenges in the experimentation space - from increasing the sensitivity of measurement - to developing techniques that shed insight into why an experiment did not perform as expected - to shaping the metrics we use to measure the value a new product innovation will provide to Pinners or advertisers
  • Collaborate with data scientists, engineers and product partners to build and evolve the tools that enable us to evaluate and interpret experimental data at scale
  • Understand our opportunity for improvement by analyzing data across thousands of past experiments to identify patterns and insights that determine the problems we tackle next
  • Shape and evolve the culture of experimentation across the company through a well-articulated understanding of the limitations in place today and the value that will be derived from change

What we’re looking for:

  • Advanced degree in a quantitative field with 4+ years of industry experience and a proven track record of applying statistical methods to solve real-world problems using big data
  • Experience working with experimentation, measurement or human evaluation platforms and a past experience related to the evolution of these platforms
  • Track record of influencing others through data
  • Demonstrated execution and impact on initiatives that cross multiple product areas and interface with leadership and product teams
  • Self-propelled continuous learner who keeps up with new tools and methodologies and builds prototypes with concepts learned
  • Expertise in at least one scripting language (ideally Python/R)
