- Business Insider crunched the numbers to find out how much Pinterest employees get paid.
- The data comes from hundreds of visa applications made public by the US government.
- Many Pinterest workers have salaries in the low-to-mid six figures.
Employees at Pinterest, a smaller challenger to Facebook and Google, can still earn a salary well into the six figures.
A software engineer, for example, can earn close to $300,000 at Pinterest, while a data scientist can earn over $200,000, according to a year’s worth of pay data. Insider pulled the information from hundreds of work-visa applications the company filed with the US government in 2021.
Many of the salaries at Pinterest are comparable to those at other
like Facebook or Twitter. Some may even exceed that offered by those platforms. An engineering manager at Pinterest can make more than $360,000 in salary, whereas one at Facebook makes around $350,000, the data shows.
The salary data has limitations. It covers only jobs for which Pinterest is hiring from other countries and the data excludes stock awards, a major part of Silicon Valley compensation. Still, the information provides solid insight into the company’s pay scale.
