About Pinterest:  

Millions of people across the world come to Pinterest to find new ideas every day. It’s where they get inspiration, dream about new possibilities and plan for what matters most. Our mission is to help those people find their inspiration and create a life they love. In your role, you’ll be challenged to take on work that upholds this mission and pushes Pinterest forward. You’ll grow as a person and leader in your field, all the while helping Pinners make their lives better in the positive corner of the internet.

Creating a life you love also means finding a career that celebrates the unique perspectives and experiences that you bring. As you read through the expectations of the position, consider how your skills and experiences may complement the responsibilities of the role.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about front-end, has a growth mindset and isn’t afraid to give their opinion on how we can improve. You’ll have the opportunity to find creative solutions to thought-provoking problems. Even better, because we covet the kind of courageous thinking that’s required in order for big bets and smart risks to pay off, you’ll be invited to create and drive new initiatives, seeing them from inception through to technical design, implementation, and release.


What you’ll do:

  • Build robust frameworks and features that empower hundreds of developers and support millions of users.
  • Enable developers to work more effectively by improving foundational web architecture, builds, CI/CD and testing capabilities.
  • Drive changes that improve overall developer experience for all web engineers across Pinterest.
  • Identify site-wide challenges; propose, test, and ship solutions.
  • Champion and drive large-scale, cross-functional initiatives that improve the Web platform.
  • Increase web stability, scalability, performance and accessibility by implementing the best web development standards.
  • Mentor team members and participate actively in design and code reviews, team processes and architectural decisions.


What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience in Web development and a deep understanding of JavaScript, CSS, DOM, HTTP protocol and how the web works.
  • Expertise with technologies such as React, Redux (or other state management solutions), Relay, GraphQL, TypeScript, Jest and React Testing Library.
  • Good knowledge of build tools such as Webpack, Turbopack, or Vite.
  • Familiarity with Node.js, server-side rendering techniques, and frameworks such as Next.js.
  • Track record of delivering large, cross-functional projects across multiple organizations and being a champion of developer experience, performance and quality.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and the ability to collaborate across teams to make platform improvements, test functionality, and evangelize adoption of platform features.
  • Love for Web and drive to keep up-to-date with new technologies, trends and best practices in client architecture.
