Pinterest Data Scientist, Cindy Zhang, had no idea she'd be onboarding and working remotely when she accepted an offer after her Pinternship back in September of 2019. As a former Pintern, she'd experienced Life At Pinterest before, and has the unique perspective that comes with going through onboarding at the same company twice: once IRL, and once virtually. In our latest Pinterest Engineering blog post, Cindy discusses her journey and shares tips and tricks for starting a new job in our new world.
Pinners (especially in #GenZ!) already used #Pinterest as a resource for aesthetic inspiration and decorating "real life" spaces like bedrooms, so it's interesting to see them seek inspiration for online spaces, too. Have you visited Pinterest to inspire your #iOS14 home screen?
Oh, Canada! Pinterest is growing in Toronto and hiring for critical positions across Machine Learning, Backend, Content, Sales and more! These roles are essential to building a world-class #shopping experience for our 400M+ Pinners, and bringing them from inspiration to action.
“From creators across the world to the content on our platform, we are committed to making Pinterest a more inclusive place. That means purposely building a company and product for everyone, reflecting our global audience of over 400 million Pinners that turn to Pinterest each month for inspiration to create a life they love.” We are honored to welcome Tyi McCray, PhD as our Global Head of Inclusion and Diversity reporting into Pinterest’s CEO and Co-Founder, Ben Silbermann. For more on the role, Tyi’s background and our commitments to building an inclusive product and culture, visit our newsroom.
From intentional self-care programming to enhanced mental health benefits, Pinterest has been taking steps to empower employees with resources to do their best work and reorganize their lives to meet today's unprecedented needs. Our CHRO Jo Dennis reflects on the team's approach.
As we settle into our new normal, we are supporting our team members with useful resources and an open dialogue. This month, we launched Pintentions, a four-week, self-care initiative with a deliberate focus on Pinployees and their well being. Each week our leaders are sharing collated resources and best practices focused across four pillars: prioritizing, controlling, connecting and learning. The goal is to help employees simplify and streamline work while connecting in a meaningful way. We’re in this—and we’ll get through this—together.
No one knows what the future will bring, but at Pinterest we’re more inspired than ever to help users build a life they love in these times of uncertainty and change. We’re excited to continue building the teams that will bring this to life.
We're excited to be recognized as one of the coolest offices in the America! Check us out at #6. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMiaw
At Pinterest, employees are encouraged to pursue what they love both at work and in their free time. What they've found is that those passions aren't as separate as you think. Hear from a drummer, timber sports enthusiast, rapper, golfer, and mentor about how their passions outside of work translate to what they love about working at Pinterest. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vM9xX
We're honored to land at #1 on this list, although we know that we still have a lot of work to do. All credit goes to our dedicated Inclusion &amp; Diversity team and employee base! #diversityintech http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMnWK
