Visual discovery destination

Pinterest is one of the fastest growing online advertising platforms, and our continued success depends on our ability to generate reliable, accurate, real-time reporting metrics to advertisers, and real-time stats to business analysts, Ads ranking models, and Ads Serving systems. We’re looking for engineers with experience and a passion in Real-Time Data Warehouse and Data Engineering to build the next-generation Ads Data system that will operate at 100x our current scale within a fraction of our current latency. You’ll be joining a small and early-stage team, building a new Data system from scratch, and laying the foundation for Pinterest’s business success.


What you’ll do:

  • Build next-generation real-time, scalable, fault-tolerant ads reporting pipeline and analytics systems using the latest open-source technologies to process terabytes of data with minute-scale pipeline delay to deliver key performance metrics to advertisers with millisecond-scale query latency with high availability
  • Build end-to-end real-time Ads Data Warehouse to power hundreds of business-critical raw and derived data sets for key external and internal business use cases
  • Provide thought leadership to the entire Ads Engineering organization on how data can be processed more efficiently, scalably, reliably, and quickly

What we’re looking for:

  • 3+ years of experience with Data Warehouse and open-source Big Data technologies
  • Experience building real-time or offline Data pipelines to process petabytes of data for business-critical use cases
  • Experience building large-scale distributed online Analytics system to support high volume, high availability, and low latency
  • Experience with Spark, Hive, Hadoop, SQL, Kafka, Parquet, HDFS, or HBase
  • Proficiency in multiple systems languages (Java, Scala, C++)
