    Pinterest: An Amazing Place For Female Engineers

    Software engineer Tracy Chou answers the Quora question “What are some particularly female engineer-friendly companies to work for in San Francisco?”

    By Tracy Chou (Software Engineer, Pinterest)

    At Pinterest, we have a great company culture (read my breathless rant here). Women are as integral and respected a part of our diverse team as anyone else, and certainly not treated any differently.

    It’s the first place, in school or professionally, that I’ve not been aware or made aware of my gender, ever, in any situation. I don’t feel like a female engineer.

    I’m just an engineer, and I’m expected and empowered to do great work like every other engineer on the team.
