More than 300M people around the world come to Pinterest every month to find inspiration. Design and the user experience is at the center of enabling people to find inspiration. We’re looking for a Creative Director to help Pinterest bring people everywhere the inspiration to create a life they love.

Working closely with our co-founders, design team and cross-functional leaders across the company, you’ll lead some of our most complex and boldest initiatives. You’ll dream up compelling and inspiring vision and then guide our team to translate it into our product. You’ll be able to design and build new ideas that push forward Pinterest’s role in the world. You’ll work with and mentor a small but mighty team of designers, writers, technologists, and researchers. This is a full-time position in San Francisco, but charged with building an iconic, global brand.


What you’ll do:

  • Establish the strategic direction and product vision for our most complex problems, bridging the gap between vision and execution.
  • Be at the forefront of major design initiatives and broadcast the efforts of the design team across Pinterest.
  • Set and refine the design quality bar, in partnership with design leadership, through our principles and design system.
  • Be responsible for mentoring and helping grow talent within the team.
  • Represent Pinterest Design within the global design community, attending and speaking at conferences.

What we’re looking for:

  • A leader who prefers to lead by doing; you can’t resist the urge to practice your craft by rolling up your sleeves and work alongside your team to unlock creativity.
  • A respected designer and product thinker that has mastered their craft and cohesive product strategy, ideally a renaissance person with endless curiosity.
  • A mentor who is energized by growing others’ careers and knows how to motivate a team.
  • An inspiring communicator that represents creative work, builds trust and influences alignment of our creative vision across marketing, PR and product.
  • A believer in our mission of bringing everyone the inspiration to create a life they love.
  • 12+ years with a track record of shipping inspiring well built experience.
