Hey,

I have an Pinterest offer, and they told me that we are going IPO next year. Valuation is 12.4Billion, My other offer is Amazon A9 that has base + cash + few stock for first 2 years. Assuming they both are almost the same on TC, is it worth to take risk on Pinterest, assuming it will grow? How does the future of Pinterest look like?

    Could someone please ELI5 Pinterest.

    Sorry I might be missing something, but what's the draw for Pinterest that justifies 12 billion valuation? I have used Pinterest for some time, but didn't really understand it's moat. I go there to see some cool pictures when bored, that's it.

      Pinterest does for discovery what Google does for search.

      They make it easy to find stuff, and the next step is executing sales/analytics based on the discovery.

      It’s ok that you don’t get it. They still have 250m users and 1B revenue this year to justify 12B eval. 12x is below avg

    Future of pinterest looks good. If the linked article is correct ^, 50% YoY revenue growth is good and user growth is good in a time when many other large consumer apps (twitter, fb, snap) aren’t.

      I wouldn't be very comfortable on a 50% yoy growth over a 20x multiple. Also the point was that I recall a 1b forecast hence a miss again.

      There was never a 1b forecast.

    I just can't understand how many people chose Pin over Amzn for a *SAME* TC.

    If TC is same, I guess this poll is a no brainer. We need the breakdown, level to see if this thread makes sense

    • Can you share some thoughts on how to get an interview call from Pinterest and clear the interview?

    Only 700MM revenue and 50% YoY
    I recall they expected 1b revenue and a doubled YoY. Is that a miss?
