Pinterest personalizes millions of experiences by using machine learning algorithms to sift through our catalog of a hundred billion Pins to find the best content for each Pinner. To provide high quality data to build these algorithms, our engineering teams rely heavily on human labelling platforms and services this team has built from the ground up. As we look to scale these platforms both vertically and horizontally, we’re looking for an engineering manager to join the team to drive technical excellence and curiosity. We need someone that will take risks with the team’s roadmap while providing a concrete vision both internally and externally. This position will require an engineering manager who has experience with a wide spectrum of technologies such as hadoop workflow, UI design and development, performance tuning, etc, and leading a highly impactful team.
