    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.

    I learned many things in my time working in film production that translate into the business, tech and entrepreneurship world. Anyone who knows how to work on a massively coordinated team on location or on set, with long hours, strange conditions, wacko deadlines and rhythms that range from non-stop overdrive to hurry-up-and-wait to extreme boredom, are A-OK in my book, and trained for just about anything. The film industry realized pretty quickly that under these conditions one of the most important things you can do to keep people working towards the common goal is to give them an abundance of creature comforts.
