Product Manager

With over a decade of experience working as a data product manager at Pinterest and Google, Frances is passionate about designing experiences using data and algorithms that delight the user. Frances is the most senior algorithms-oriented product manager at Pinterest, and focuses on the ranking of the Home Feed where she combines her training in user-oriented collaborative design with her love of data mining. While at Google, she worked on search applications as diverse as Google Books to Google+ along with more user-facing projects like launching the first mobile book reader. Frances believes one of the most fascinating organizational problems facing the tech industry is how we build effective decentralized data communities. She is a fervent believer that most people can be independent and effective consumers of data and works to empower engineers, product managers, and designers in their own analyses through collaborative workshops and trainings internal and external to Pinterest.
