"The front page of the internet," Reddit brings over 430 million people together each month through their common interests, inviting them to share, vote, comment, and create across thousands of communities. Come for the cats, stay for the empathy.
Monetization is often the most data-heavy, latency sensitive, and technically demanding part of any online business. Our Ads Engineers work on the Reddit Ads platform, all the way from the front-end tools for ad creation to predictive modeling, delivery, auctions, and attribution.
The Ad Events team is one of the core engineering teams in the Ads group. It is responsible for building and maintaining critical components that make up Reddit's ads data infrastructure. Some key problems this team is solving in 2020 include:
Re-architecting the ads data platform to be event driven, powered by a new real-time streaming validation system
Building a new events store, powered by Apache Druid that will help power new ads products
