Jeremy Carroll is an Operations Engineer at Pinterest

Pinterest engineers are building a product that reaches tens of millions of people, which requires the scaling of billions of objects. Even more people are now using Pinterest on mobile, which brings unique engineering challenges as we build the the most comprehensive, personal and relevant interest graph on the web. We use data from our system to help people discover things they're interested in—even things they didn't know they were looking for! We do this all in small teams that are having a big impact.
