In 2009 Sharp met Ben Silbermann (who would become Pinterest’s CEO) in New York through a mutual friend. He soon thereafter moved to California, where he worked as a product designer at Facebook before joining Silbermann and Paul Sciarra to focus on Pinterest full-time. Sharp is credited with designing and coding Pinterest and the Pinterest grid for the initial product launch in March 2010. Today he oversees all growth, international, product and design efforts at the San Francisco-based company.
He married Christina McBride in 2014. The couple met while attending college together.
