About Pinterest:

Ready to lead the evolution of a world-class API framework and development experience, backing billions of monthly pageviews on one of the planet’s most beloved products? Pinterest is taking our API framework into the future and looking for a senior engineer to collaborate in leading that change.

Our team splits time between driving the next generation of Pinterest’s API architecture and providing a great developer experience, with a side helping of operational work to keep it all running. We balance collaboration, ownership and mentorship so you have the space to grow your career fast but you’ll never have to do it alone.

We’re seeking a strong technical leader to join team leadership and assist with identifying the projects we should be driving, designing high-level architecture, owning major cross-eng initiatives end to end including hands-on coding and providing technical leadership for the team and other API developers.

What You’ll Do

  • Work with peers to define the architectural direction for Pinterest’s APIs, and then build it
  • Identify, prioritize, and resolve the biggest problems facing API developers and consumers at Pinterest
  • Write high-quality, performant Python code that helps millions of people create a life they love, and support our peer teams throughout the company doing the same
  • Contribute to the operation of our API services, including periodic on-call

What We’re Looking For

  • 7+ years of industry experience
  • Experience building API endpoints between consumer clients and servers
  • Experience identifying projects your team should be working on and driving them through official prioritization
  • Effective communication of complex technical issues to a cross-team and cross-functional audience
  • You enjoy thinking about APIs at a platform or framework level
  • Strong desire to be a core contributor to the group that designs and builds the future of API architecture at Pinterest
  • Self-awareness, and a strong desire to learn, play and grow
