Job Description

Content and Communities' mission lies at the core of Reddit's success as a platform: we build and deliver features for Reddit communities at scale, ranging from enabling smooth and effective community and content creation, applying a growth framework to activate new communities, to equipping moderators with the tools they need to succeed. This team drives several key product metrics for the entire Reddit platform.

This is a high impact role where you will drive related technical & product strategy, operations, architecture, and execution for one of the largest sites in the world.

What You?ll Do:

  • Build, hire and lead a high-calibre team of product engineers and mobile developers.
  • Work cross-functionally with product, design, and other engineering managers to plan product and business strategy, and to build novel products and features that our half-billion users will love.
  • Participate in the full development cycle: design, development, test, experimentation, analysis, and launch. You?ll be reviewing code and design docs, giving feedback on product specs and mocks, and generally helping out wherever is needed.
  • Coach and mentor engineers on the team to further their professional development.
  • Set and enable a culture of metrics led execution, with efficient processes and strong levels of transparency. 

Who You Might Be:

  • 5+ years building and managing high performing engineering teams.
  • 4+ years of experience as a software engineer developing user-facing mobile native applications at scale, using Swift and Kotlin.
  • Fluency with dealing with product analytics, forecasting and exposure to tools like GA, BigQuery etc.
  • Software development experience in one or more general purpose programming languages; Python, Go, Rust, Java, C++
  • Strong organizational skills, the ability to prioritize tasks and keep projects on schedule.
  • BS degree in Computer Science, similar technical field of study or equivalent practical experience.
  • Strong focus on user experience and usability. You are an undying advocate for the user, and you have a deep intuition for how people think and how they interact with software. Experience with social or e-commerce is a huge plus. It’s wild out here.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit. You must be self-directed, innovative, and biased towards action in fast-paced environments. You live to build new things and thrive in ambiguity and even failure.
  • Excellent communication skills. You must be able to collaborate effectively with teams in a fully remote environment, and discuss complex topics with technical and non-technical audiences.
