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.

Pinterest is looking for a Product Designer to help define, design and disseminate Pinterest’s internal design system. Your work will have critical impact on our company’s engineers, designers and end users.

What you’ll do:
  • Help our team build a best-in-class design system that supports our web, iOS and Android products
  • Collaborate directly with designers and engineers to ensure that the components we design are shippable and rock solid
  • Both assure that our system is meeting the needs of our designer and engineers and help evangelize frequent/appropriate usage
  • Write usage guidelines for our system’s tokens, components and patterns that set both design and engineering up for success
  • Be a core contributor to our Figma libraries and sticker sheets through component creations, updates and cross-team communications
What we’re looking for:
  • Strong portfolio that demonstrates deep systems thinking, user-centered design and an ability to translate ambiguous problems into practical solutions
  • 5+ years of experience in the design industry with a preference towards a broad domain knowledge of industries and platforms
  • 2+ years working in the design systems space — a background in both web and mobile system design preferred
