Software Engineer, Analytics Platform

San Francisco

You’ll design, build, support, and own from end to end, our critical internal data-focused products used by the rest of the company. For example our A/B experiments, ad-hoc querying, and internal analytics web apps used by Pinterest’s engineers and PMs. You’ll be part of a small and fast moving team that operates as a small startup within a startup, thus benefiting from a quick iteration speed, direct user feedback, and usage of modern technologies. You’ll also benefit from the learning and growth opportunities that a company like Pinterest provides, for example by interfacing with our sibling teams like big data platform, or core product data, and thus learning from their areas of expertise.
