Head of Merchant and Monetization Formats Engineering

Scaling Pinterest’s ads business and enabling a seamless Shopping experience is one of our highest priorities as a company.  This leader will be instrumental to help build the infrastructure that enables Pinterest to monetize from shopping.  83% of weekly Pinners have made a purchase based on content they saw from brands on Pinterest so there is much more work to be done in enabling a seamless experience for merchants to enable a great shopping experience for Pinners!


You will own the end to end experience for merchants, from onboarding to running campaigns. This work has historically been spread across different engineering teams, and the need to consolidate these initiatives under one leader will allow us to progress the product forward with a singular vision. We're looking for a Head of Merchant and Monetization Formats Engineering that will lead a large distributed team across multiple locations.

This is a full-time position that will be managing remote, distributed teams with some travel and can be based in multiple locations including the San Francisco Bay Area or Seattle. 

What you’ll do

  • Lead Business/Merchant/Partner end-to-end experience in collaboration with all engineering teams on shopping
  • Lead the shopping ads strategy in collaboration with the rest of engineering/product leadership within monetization
  • Represent monetization in all shopping reviews including areas outside their direct control 
  • Build a cohesive team and bring clarity/alignment across the organization
  • Collaborate with Product Managers on planning, scoping, and engineering estimation for product roadmaps
  • Collaborate with data analysts, sales, product marketing, design, and operations teams to launch and operate our Ads and business products
  • Lead our full-stack product engineering teams to execute product roadmaps across mobile, web, backend, and infrastructure

Who you are

  • You are a visionary that anticipates industry trends and invest in the future of Pinterest’s strategic plans and priorities 
  • You are a strategic thinker who comes with a systems mindset that holistically considers future trends and needs of Pinterest when developing strategies
  • You thrive in ambiguous situations and operate effectively, even when things are not certain or the way forward is not clear
  • You are a strong cross-functional partner who brings together multiple divisions, some reporting directly to you and others indirectly
  • You are an excellent communicator and proven people leader who ensures that your teams are inclusive of and leverages diverse experiences and backgrounds

What we are looking for

  • Prior experience in managing geo-distributed teams including 5+ years of leadership experience managing a team of 40+ engineers 
  • 5+ years of leadership experience managing a team of distributed engineers across multiple locations
  • 5+ years of leadership experience managing multiple managers
  • Prior experience working in ads, shopping or e-commerce domains 
  • Prior experience working closely with both engineering and product teams
  • Prior full-stack engineering experience
