Tech Lead, Ads Serving and Intelligence Infrastructure

San Francisco | California | United States

Millions of people across the world come to Pinterest to find new ideas every day. It’s where they get inspiration, dream about new possibilities and plan for what matters most. Our mission is to help those people find their inspiration and create a life they love. As a Pinterest employee, you’ll be challenged to take on work that upholds this mission and pushes Pinterest forward. You’ll grow as a person and leader in your field, all the while helping users make their lives better in the positive corner of the internet. The continued success of Pinterest depends on the Ads Serving and Intelligence Infrastructure team which crunches thousands of signals in a few hundred milliseconds, to identify the most relevant ads to show to Pinners. You’ll lead a small team, which designs high-performance infrastructure systems, in order to power the most critical, revenue-generating algorithms at Pinterest.

What you’ll do

  • Lead the vision for the Ads Serving and Intelligence Infra team at Pinterest

  • Re-architect the ad ranking systems, in order to 10x the scale, and enable more powerful methods of information retrieval, with a goal to improve revenue and ad relevance.

  • Use Flink and Druid to build real-time data collection and visualization, so that developers can tune the inner-workings of the ranking algorithms

  • Work cross-functionally, with ranking engineers and business partners, to enable new ad products, improve ad quality, and up-level the tooling used by 100+ people.

  • Mentor a growing team of engineers, by assisting individuals with vision-setting, technical knowledge, and professional development.

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of relevant industry experience

  • Experience owning high traffic and mission-critical distributed systems

  • A natural teacher of engineering best practices, and a culture carrier for the team

  • Loves to lead projects with ambiguous requirements

  • Mastery of at least one systems languages (Java, C++, Go)
