You’ve surely heard of Pinterest, the Palo Alto-based wunderkind startup that seems to be taking over the internet.But have you peeked behind the curtain?
They found infectious energy, a bright red workspace, some ambitious plans for the future, and over 70 enthusiastic employees decked out in Pinterest gear. Check out what it’s like to spend a day at the startup’s fun and friendly headquarters.
Located in the heart of Palo Alto, the Pinterest office is home to 70+ employees—and a massive amount of pinning.
Enid got her job at Pinterest in a unique way. She was an early Pinterest adopter—Pinner #367, to be exact—and was instantly hooked by the potential she saw. Enid had racked up 200 pins in just two days, and decided she wanted to meet the founders—and so was born Pinterest's very first meet-up, and Enid's new job.
With shelves piled high with t-shirts, water bottles, iPad covers, and stickers galore, Pinterest employees have plenty of opportunity to rep their company—and they love it.
One of the staples of the Pinterest office is the beloved foosball table in the back room. Playing foosball while brainstorming or discussing projects is encouraged.
The Pinterest founders, otherwise known as the Pintero Gang, earned this poster by supporting a Kickstarter project.
