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.

Pinterest is a metric driven company, not only do we use metrics to make our decisions, but our state of the art machine learning depends on accurate metrics.  We are building the core of this team in Toronto, where you'll be working with San Francisco teammates on larger projects.
