Pinterest Engineering

Pinterest is a visual discovery engine people use to find ideas in home, food, style, beauty, and more. The service grew quickly after its founding in 2010 and the company has grown to be a global team of thousands of professionals spanning time zones and continents. To deliver the smooth experience Pinterest users have come to expect requires an engineering team to keep the system running while continuously improving it. In this episode, I speak with three engineering leaders about their decision to work at Pinterest, the contributions they’ve made, and what makes Pinterest engineering different from other companies.
