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.
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.
