Vivian is a software engineer at Pinterest where she focuses on growing users at scale. Pinterest is the world's first visual discovery engine that helps users discover and do what they love, with over 100 billion recipes, home hacks and style ideas.
In the past three years, she has worked on all parts of the user acquisition and retention funnel, from signup all the way through the resurrection of churned users. She has primarily focused on building growth features on iOS and recently has started working on improving the backend infrastructure for our onboarding experiences. Back when she joined, user growth was slowing and a Growth engineering team was formed with a mandate to accelerate growth, particularly internationally. Now more than half of our 175 million monthly active users live outside the US and over 75% of signups are from outside the US.
Vivian lives in San Francisco and has an adorable new puppy named Knuckles (you can follow her on Instagram @knucklesthepup). She's happy to discuss anything from user growth to engineering at scale to coffee and naming pets after classic Sonic characters.

She will be live on Aug 15 starting at 930 AM PT for one and half hours during which she will answer as many questions as possible.
