Today we’re announcing the opening of our Warsaw office as our first-ever engineering hub in Central Europe. Our new office will enable us to continue to scale our global engineering resources to serve our Pinners, creators and advertisers around the world.
The motivation for opening an office in Warsaw began with our acquisition of VOCHI in December 2021, who had an office and team members already located there. VOCHI is an app that uses AI to give people cutting-edge tools to create and edit their videos. VOCHI continues to be a separate app while the team also builds tools for Pinterest creators. With our VOCHI team setting the foundation for the Pinterest Warsaw office, we have strong infrastructure and leadership in place to attract additional top talent in the region.
This year, we plan to double our engineering roles in the Warsaw office, who will focus on product development in the areas of video and computer vision for both the VOCHI app and the global Pinterest platform. We’re especially interested in the specialized talent based in Central and Eastern Europe that focus on mobile video creation and consumption, AR and computer vision to build technology and experiences that will power the creative resources we offer for creators on Pinterest as we strive to become the most loved publishing platform for lifestyle inspiration.
Our top priority is to continue making Pinterest home to the most inspiring, inclusive and actionable content.
With an ecosystem of richer, fresher, more engaging content from a new generation of creators, we believe Pinterest can be home to the most inspiring content and the most inspiring people.
“We’re building an experience for creators that empowers them with tools to foster meaningful engagement with their audiences as we make Pinterest the home of the world’s most inspirational content. Our new engineering office in Warsaw will enable us to draw from the specialized technical skills based in the region, including expertise in mobile video, AR and computer vision that will power the creative resources we offer for creators. Pinterest is a place where people can do their best work and we look forward to tapping into the wealth of talent in Poland.” - Jeremy King, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Pinterest
Pinterest is a visual inspiration app powered by the largest dataset of human-curated ideas, with more than 360 billion ideas saved by more than 400 million people around the world each month. People come to Pinterest to discover ideas — for their wardrobe, for their new home, for their next holiday and more. Pinterest is where the next generation in computer vision and recommendations technology, AR and AI, and visual search and object detection is being developed. Engineers at Pinterest are innovating by using technology as a key driver to make Pinterest a must-go shopping destination that’s more like walking the virtual aisles of a store than anywhere else and a place where people can virtually try on products, comparison shop across brands and price points, and search and shop with their camera and within images.
