Job Description

As a Data Science intern or university grad, you’ll help us build and scale Pinterest’s approach to experimentation so we can accelerate innovation on our product. You’ll apply quantitative analysis, statistical techniques and data mining skills to understand the limitations of running hundreds of simultaneous experiments to help us draw reliable insights with a fraction of the data. Your impact and work will enable us to simplify the interpretation of experiments and scale the number of experiments we run at Pinterest. We offer a 12-week summer internship and university grad program in our San Francisco office.

  • Currently pursuing or completing a MS or PhD in Statistics, Industrial Engineering, Computer Science, Math, Operations Research, Computational Biology, Computational Physics, or another related field.
  • Experience at least one scripting language and proficiency in SQL/Hive (Python, R)
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to tell a complete narrative using data.
  • Ability to connect data analysis to real business problems in order to impact business performance on web scale data is a plus
  • Knowledgeable about the machine learning trade-offs and model evaluation

What you’ll do:

  • Perform deep dive analysis to understand and optimize the key levers of our ads and search ecosystems
  • Design core metrics that serve as the North Stars for team efforts and model trade offs across product areas
  • Explore alternative experimentation techniques to help internal teams evaluate their ideas faster
  • Apply statistics, modeling, and/or ML to improve the efficiency of systems and relevance algorithms across Search, Home Feed, and Related Pins
  • Work with product managers and engineers to design data products and debug A/B experiments
