    I would be pretty excited.

    Pinterest is a product with a lot of potential and a lot of really exciting work with no owner. Albeit small, we have a really great team of product designers working around-the-clock to make a great experience for pinners. I'm personally really inspired and excited about our mission as a company, which is to help connect people to the their interests and helping them do those things in real life.

    I'm peers with pretty much everyone. There's very little hierarchy at the company. I wouldn't say I'm anywhere near the top. I have the most experience designing Pinterest, but I'm nowhere near the best designer on the team. Probably closer to the bottom in that regard.
