Job Description

The Economy and Special Projects teams at Reddit are among the most innovative, forward-looking teams at Reddit. Together we?re trying to build an Internet of free, independent communities that are powered by a fun, collaborative economy. Our goal is to find new monetization models that restore the balance of power online, putting it back in the hands of the people. Though quite difficult, we believe it’s one of the most important projects to help keep the Internet free.

Building this future requires a careful balance of engineering, product, design, and business. It’s a matter of building the right user experience, and that’s where you come in. We?re looking for a world-class staff-level frontend engineer who can work at the intersection of these problems and lead the team to build our vision.

What you?ll do

  • Lead and mentor a rapidly growing team of frontend engineers across a variety of Economy projects. Our team has been doubling in size annually for two years and could easily triple by the end of the year. We need a strong FE engineer who can help grow the technical skills of all the FE engineers on our team and establish a strong engineering and UX-focused culture within the org.
  • Work cross-functionally with product, design, and engineering managers to plan product and business strategy, and build novel products and features that our half-billion users will love.
  • Participate in the full development cycle: design, development, QA, experimentation, analysis, and launch. You?ll be writing and reviewing code, writing design docs, giving feedback on product specs and mocks, and generally helping out wherever is needed.

What we?re looking for

  • 8+ years of experience as a Software Engineer developing user-facing web applications at scale. Solid experience with TypeScript, React and Redux is a huge plus.
  • 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. On our team, everyone needs to act like a startup CEO. 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.
