To meet the changing needs of the 175+ million people who use Pinterest, we have to know both how they're using Pinterest today, and how they'll be using it in the future.
To do this, our data science team has created a systematic approach to data science, which gives us trustworthy conclusions that are both reproducible and automatable. We built tools that democratize the data, so engineers, product managers and designers can easily visualize and explore trends in content and experimental results. We also track how the world is changing as people modify their behaviors, diets, health routines, homes and interests. This gives us the knowledge we need to develop the revolutionary data-driven products our Pinners will be looking for next.
Pinterest’s data scientists have backgrounds in applied mathematics, computational biology, electrical engineering, physics, and software engineering.
