Software Engineer, Feature Platform

Pinterest, San Francisco

Visual discovery destination

Our team’s mission is to build reliable, scalable and flexible "micro-data" platform for developing, managing and serving signals for all of Pinterest. This platform aggregates and serves all signals about pinners, pins, and boards and indexes all pins through batched/incremental/real-time pipelines to power our discovery engine for generating and ranking pin candidates.

What you’ll do:

  • Own, improve, and scale existing static signal platform which coordinates tens of jobs and processes hundreds of TB of data each day
  • Own and maintain the system that rebuilds the full index of Pinterest’s catalog of ideas periodically, which powers almost all of Pinterest’s products
  • Drive the roadmap for the next-generation real-time Pinterest signal platform and build the system to instantly and incrementally update the indices

What we’re looking for:

  • Deep expertise on batch or real-time data processing (Hadoop or Spark) at consumer Internet scale
  • Strong ability to work cross functionally and drive projects end-to-end
  • Expert in C/C++ or Java
  • Fluent in Python
