Pinterest Loses Head of Engineering Jon Jenkins

Jon Jenkins, the head of engineering that Pinterest hired from Amazon a little over a year ago, has left the company, as TechCrunch noted based on a Quora explanation he posted. Jenkins said he wanted to do his own startup. Said Pinterest, “We’d like to thank JJ for his contribution to Pinterest and wish him all the best on his next project. We feel fortunate to have leaders within engineering who are ready to step up and run the organization while we recruit for a permanent head of engineering.”
