What’s it Like to Work at Pinterest? Here’s the Inside Look & More!
Some of us have to stay off Pinterest while at work, but why not work at Pinterest and get paid to make crafts and upload pins all day? Here, TechCrunch takes a little tour of the inner workings of the Pinterest headquarters where you can see their “make-athons” in action.
Here are three things we loved about the inside tour:
1. Catered lunch and dinner: Say what? — I was just happy to get 50% off my meals when I was a server. Pinterest keeps the team unity by having them all eat together — on the house!
2. Pinterest Bar: Employees decided to make a social area with a bar. Sounds like a good place to mingle with peer, and an even better place to come up with creative pins… After a few drinks.
3. Pinterest Club: Cafeteria can turn into a club? As if Pinterest wasn’t a big enough distraction at work.
With cleverly named conference rooms and unique decor, it’s no wonder why many college students would love the opportunity to live in San Francisco and work at Pinterest.
Here’s what Pinterest has to say on their careers page:
