I can completely understand why Eliza would want to work at Pinterest. I was recently at Pinterest headquarters in San Francisco, California. I was as excited as a kid going to Disney World! Here are a few pictures I took during my visit.
The building is located close to other tech startups in San Francisco.
Eduardo Espinosa gave us a warm welcome. I love that clock on the wall!
Even Pinterest uses Pinterest for inspiration. There were crafty decorations all around like these fun pillows.
I really dig this cool table covered in rulers.
I didn’t get to meet Ben Silbermann or Evan Sharp, the co-founders of Pinterest, but I got to bring home this snazzy official Pinterest pin!

Another great episode. How creative was that of Eliza – awesome. Loved the tip about thanking pinners for their pins of images from our websites. I did try doing this but couldn’t see a way of commenting only “hearting”. Must have been doing something wrong somewhere – will go back in short while to try and figure it out.
Thanks Rob! The easiest way to thank pinners is to leave a comment under their pin description.
Happy Pinning 🙂
Beautiful job on Eliza’s resume. Well done.
