Pinterest personalizes millions of experiences by using machine learning algorithms to sift through our catalog of a hundred billion Pins to find the best content for each Pinner. To provide high-quality data to build these algorithms, our engineering teams rely heavily on human labeling platforms and services the human computation team has built from the ground up. As we look to scale these platforms both vertically and horizontally, we're looking for an engineering manager to join the team to drive technical excellence and curiosity. We need someone who will take risks with the team's roadmap while providing a concrete vision both internally and externally. This position will require an engineering manager who has experience as a developer and optimizing code, performance tuning systems and leading a highly impactful team.
What you will do:
* Design and scale company-wide offline measurement and human evaluation platforms for organic and ad content * Drive short term and long term vision for the team, expanding impact horizontally and vertically * Partner with stakeholders to align engineering efforts for high impact human labelling initiatives * Provide visibility for senior leadership into the team's global impact
What we are looking for:
* Strong programmer in one of the following languages such as Python, Java or C++ * Familiar with UI and Web Application Development * 5+ years of experience in software development in a major language * 1+ year experience in leading a highly impactful engineering team * Curiosity for leveraging human evaluation for measurement
