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.

Our users come to Pinterest to explore ideas and run more than 6 billion search queries every month. Many of these queries represent exploratory search intent and are broad, which means that the search ranking system should be able to deeply understand this intent, and then help people explore content, personalize results, harness visual signals effectively, and show the most engaging content up front. All of this means that Pinterest search presents a unique challenge quite unlike other search systems and the opportunity to innovate on a product that only Pinterest can build.

We are looking for an exceptional technical leader and engineering manager to help lead the search quality team in Palo Alto.

What you will do:

  • The candidate will be responsible for major areas of search quality for more than 400 million monthly active Pinterest users. Some potential areas of impact include search ranking models, query understanding, query/document embeddings, visual relevance, search quality evaluation, shopping, and others.
  • Deeply understand the Pinterest search product, and drive the vision for the search quality team.
  • Provide visibility for senior leadership into the team's global impact.
  • Partner with stakeholders to expand impact across the company.
  • Mentor and grow engineers on the team.
  • Build a culture of excellence and expertise.

What we're looking for:

  • Strong search quality or applied machine learning expertise and experience working with a large-scale production search/ranking system.
  • Applied ML experience is strongly preferred. Experience in related fields such as recommendation systems, natural language processing and computer vision is a bonus.
  • Hands-on technical approach, and ability to build scalable production quality systems.
  • 2+ years of experience in leading/managing a highly impactful engineering team.
  • 8+ years of software development experience.
