San Francisco
As part of our small and growing Machine Learning team, you'll help develop a platform for the end-to-end machine learning lifecycle: rapid prototyping, full-scale training, deploying, monitoring, maintaining models, and iterating on modeling ideas. You'll work on a system which is used for large-scale machine learning. The team's training platform is used for models on all major surface areas (Ads, Home Feed, Recommendations), which score tens of millions of pins every second. Projects you'll work on includes building a lineage-tracking workflow engine for reproducibility of models and creating an unified feature store for teams to share features about Pinterest entities (pins, users, boards).
