Our Engineering Productivity team is a diverse group of experienced engineers who build tools and systems enabling hundreds of Pinterest engineers to be productive across the development lifecycle (code, build, deploy, and workload operations). Our vision is to provide a fast and safe path from prototype to production without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.

  • Work on our next-generation, continuous delivery platform for Container, Serverless, and VM-based Compute Engines
  • Build partnerships with various teams (our customers) by learning their use-cases and pain points; champion key efforts across teams
  • Have an opportunity to impact key open source systems such as Phabricator (SCM), Bazel (Build), Jenkins (CI), Buildkite (CI), Teletraan (Deploy/Compute Engine), Kubernetes (Compute Engine), Spinnaker (Workflow Orchestration)

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience as a software engineer and have a penchant to build and scale critical distributed systems
  • Proficient in coding and scripting languages such as C/C++, Go, Java, or Python
  • You enjoy articulating technical details on key problem areas by writing RFCs and design documents
