What does the writer mean here by "second employee" in the below sentence?

Later that year, I left my job as the second employee at Pinterest–before I vested any of my stock–to turn it into what I thought would become my life’s work.

    Perhaps it means "the second person to be given employment (by a new company)". – Weather Vane Feb 8 at 18:08

It seems to mean the writer was the second person to be employed by Pinterest (i.e., one of Pinterest's first employees).
