How we build Pinterest
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.
We believe innovation happens when disciplines knit. We insist on an open, curious culture where everyone —from engineering and design to marketing to community—works together. This leads us to building great products that are powerful, beautiful and easy to use.
We believe the best way to learn if something will work is to just go do it. Our process is iterative, and we're constantly learning from the things we try. When in doubt - go.
We're Pinterest inside and out: warm and respectful, yet honest and direct. Everything we do should reflect our values.
