The Challenge

An ever-growing market

Each month, over 400 million users visit Pinterest, the visual discovery engine, to “pin” ideas, share images and inspire the world.

In 2020, user traffic was growing rapidly. Pinterest, needed highly experienced,  Top IT Talent and it needed it fast.

To help meet the growing demand, it set out to improve the Pinterest Ads Manager, a robust ad platform designed to introduce even more products and content to users on the biggest dataset of ideas ever assembled. But Pinterest had struggled in the past to recruit full-stack engineering talent in the competitive employment market near its San Francisco headquarters. That’s where BairesDev comes in.

Rebuilding the Pinterest Ads Manager in record time

Along the way, the team served in many influential positions from “the driving force of the Metrics Migration,” a stack spanning across the UI, API, and data jobs, to the “sole owner of the internal admin tool” that controls administrator access.

They also played a critical role in Quality Assurance (QA). BairesDev’s meticulous QA process uncovers more than hidden errors and weaknesses; it highlights valuable insights on performance and user experience for future improvements.

As they do on all client projects, our Developers created quality control for their own code to stay fully accountable for their contribution to Pinterest.
