Dubsmash is the short video platform that elevates underrepresented communities and helps them earn a living. In December of 2020, Dubsmash was acquired by Reddit Inc. and is now shaping how communities come together with video at the core. A lean and high output team, an estimated 25% of all Black American teens use the app on the monthly basis, with 30% of its daily users creating video. Last year, the company reported hitting the milestone of 1 billion video views. 

Dubsmash is a largely autonomous unit within Reddit, running independent processes that focus on shipping high quality products with cutting edge technologies, every two weeks. Over the past 2 years, the team has shipped over 60+ versions of the applications to its customer base. In 2021, the team will be shipping huge updates to the product, transforming the way consumers interact through video. Being a part of this team, you will benefit from seeing your output live on the App Store every two weeks, while enjoying the benefits Reddit Inc. has to offer.
