Job Description

Every month, hundreds of millions of people around the world come to Pinterest seeking inspiration for all of the small and big moments in their lives. The Discovery team connects them with the most compelling content at the right moment across the highest trafficked experiences in the app, such as Home, Search, and Browse. As a Staff Product Manager, Discovery, you’ll partner with some of the industry’s best ML experts, data scientists, designers and engineers to envision and realize the future of search and recommendations at Pinterest. The initiatives you drive will have company-level impact and bring delight to Pinners all across the world, as you push forth the cutting edge of machine learning and experience across teams at Pinterest.

What you’ll do:

  • Chart out an exciting vision of where search and recommendations at Pinterest are headed, including cross-cutting machine learning initiatives and the user and content understanding needed to deliver the best content to our customers
  • Deeply understand our users, synthesizing qualitative and quantitative data on how they behave, how they respond to different experiences and where the largest gaps are in meeting their needs
  • Proactively build partnerships across Pinterest, leveraging the best machine learning solutions across the company to build compelling discovery user experiences that seamlessly blend user generated, sponsored, editorial and shoppable content
  • Act as a spokesperson for Discovery with diverse internal stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds including senior leadership
  • Build a strong culture of experimentation and rapid learning and execution within Discovery Relevance, ultimately driving Pinterest-level engagement and customer retention
  • Mentor peer product managers in Discovery, building their skills and domain knowledge as they continue to grow their careers in product management

What we’re looking for:

  • Demonstrated success in product management or related experience at fast-growing companies
  • Previous experience or exposure to consumer-facing experience and content distribution problems at high scale. Experience working closely with machine learning engineering partners is a plus
  • Strong technical breadth and judgment – ability to quickly ramp up and go deep on a range of technologies, ability to identify technical risks and tradeoffs 
  • Proven ability to lead in ambiguous environments, aligning across functions, teams, and orgs to deliver on time in a highly collaborative environment
  • Strong analytical skills to define product strategy and drive decision making, making appropriate trade-offs based on data analysis and qualitative feedback from Pinners
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with clear communication of complex topics
  • Exceptional relationship-building skills, organizational awareness, and ability to persuade others to accomplish program objectives while holding yourself and your team to a high standard of accountability
