Life at Pinterest

We believe that everyone should be able to discover things that inspire them. It’s a higher purpose and concrete challenge that our employees embody every day.

Our mission
is to bring


to create a life

Every single person, no matter where they live, what they look like or what their interests are, should be able to discover ideas that move them. Only Pinterest has the accessibility and scale to inspire this inclusivity.

Inspiration is showing people what’s possible and giving them the self-confidence to act. It’s about discovery + emotion + action.

This is more than simply helping people do things, it’s about helping them do the things that truly make them fulfilled.

Our core values bring Pinterest to life

Put Pinners first

People use Pinterest to discover ideas to try in their daily lives. We always start by asking: Whose problem are we solving? Is it significant? Are we making Pinners’ lives better? If products don’t work for people, they don’t work for us.

Care with candor

We believe in sharing honest feedback, delivered with respect, to build trust and support growth. We always assume positive intent because we know that all feedback is given in a genuine effort to help us improve.

Be an owner

The success of Pinterest depends on the ownership of every Pinployee. We all own Pinterest and work to achieve results that benefit everyone, not just specific teams or individuals.

Win or learn

Pinterest is all about growing and learning from experimentation, and we believe in the same spirit of exploration inside Pinterest walls. We learn from our successes, our epic failures, and each other.

Act with integrity

We always act with integrity. We do what we say we are going to do and we admit when we make mistakes.
