Machine Learning Engineer, Generalist - Pinterest

San Francisco, California

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. As a Pinterest employee, 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 users make their lives better in the positive corner of the internet.

Pinterest's discovery platform helps users find and explore their interests and our content ranges across all categories, from food and fashion to books, art, and movies. Our dataset is rich with textual, web mining, social and interest graph, and visual image content and harnessing these signals at scale is a significant challenge. You’ll work with our small team to understand user interests and intent and build the systems and machine learning models to drive recommendations to those users at scale.

Example Projects

  • Create learned models about user behavior to customize Pinterest user's homefeeds
  • Launch user features and experiments driven by ML and recommendations
  • Develop new feature and content extraction algorithms from Pinterest’s pin and interest graph
  • Build a recommendations engine to rank any type of content and object based on pin and user signals


What We’re Looking For

  • 7+ years of relevant industry experience with algorithms, data structures, and coding
  • Strong experience in machine learning, statistics, or big data
  • Previous experience with search or recommendations ranking systems
  • Experience in MapReduce, Hadoop, and/or distributed systems
  • Cross-functional collaborator and strong communicator
