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.

The amount of advertisers on Pinterest is growing faster than the sales team, necessitating new investments in driving sales productivity through Tooling. Your customers would be internal, and you’d become an expert at how the whole sales motion works. Friction is your enemy, and happy productive sales people is your outcome. We’re looking for motivated and self starting individuals to evolve existing, and build new tooling from scratch. You’ll work closely with internal customers from many disciplines (product, operations, sales) to rapidly deliver creative solutions in an iterative manner. 

What you’ll do:

  • Design and develop internal tools to improve efficiency of sales teams and processes
  • Architect, deploy and maintain performant and reliable systems, building for quick iteration and reusability
  • Work closely with internal customers from product management, sales and operations to craft fit for purpose tools
  • Re-think how current processes can be made better through data enrichment, connecting systems and automation
  • Define new metrics and systems for observing, evaluating and further optimizing business processes

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of software engineering experience
  • Experiences in developing backend large scale services and data processing workflows in Java
  • Experience utilizing big data processing systems such as Hive/Spark/Presto. 
  • Strong developer. Loves coding and constructing technical solutions
  • Effective collaboration with other teams
