The shopping team at Pinterest is inventing a brand new, more visual and personalized shopping experience for 300M+ users worldwide. Shopping is at the core of Pinterest’s mission to help people create a life they love. Every day hundreds of millions of users (Pinners) come on Pinterest to find inspiration to decorate their home, to wear outfits on different occasions, host parties and various other things to create a better life. Those inspirations are visual and reflect very detailed tastes of the Pinners regarding the choice of color, style, etc. The shopping team is responsible for connecting inspiration to products that Pinners would like to buy and create a life they love.
Connecting inspiration to product is very challenging and requires an understanding of user preferences, the content of the image, visual matching of images and selecting and ranking the top images based on various signals. More interestingly, we need to solve these challenges at the awe-inspiring scale of Pinterest for 300M+ users, tens of billions of inspiration pins and hundreds of millions of products. The team is using one of the most sophisticated computer vision techniques for image matching, deep learning for user understanding and ranking at the scale unimaginable at most places. If you are excited to improve lives using the magic of AI/ML at a very large scale then you must consider this position.
