Pinterest is growing up.
The six-year-old startup recently moved into a giant new office in San Francisco that feels much sleeker and more sophisticated than its old digs.
And that’s no accident.
We took a peek inside to learn more about how the image-centric discovery site sees its new space as reflecting its evolving product.
Right off the bat, the space feels airy and bright thanks to a large common area right off the lobby.
It doubles as a cafeteria and an All Hands space, where 'pinployees' gather every Friday for a Q&A led by CEO Ben Silbermann.
When we visited, the space was decked out in flags representing the top countries where Pinterest is trying to expand.
Right now, more than 50% of Pinners are from outside the US, coming off a base of 100 million monthly active users.
