Reddit is a network of more than 100,000 communities where people can dive into anything through experiences built around their interests, hobbies and passions. Reddit users submit, vote and comment on content, stories and discussions about the topics they care about the most. From pets to parenting, there’s a community for everybody on Reddit and with more than 50 million daily active people, it is home to the most open and authentic conversations on the internet.

Reddit is continuing to grow our teams with the best talent. We're completely remote friendly and will continue to be after the pandemic.

Reddit is a platform that both celebrates and benefits from users innovating on Reddit itself, and we want to take that innovation to the next level. Our users have already done so much with the simple tools we’ve given them. In essence, they’ve proven Joy’s Law: 

 

“No matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else … It's better to create an ecology that gets all the world’s smartest people toiling in your garden for your goals. If you rely solely on your own employees, you’ll never solve all your customers' needs”

-- Bill Joy, Sun Microsystems

 

The developer platform initiative is about empowering users to make their communities on Reddit as awesome as possible. Think of it as radical community customization. We’ve learned that every time we give our users a canvas on which to be creative they both do so and do so in surprising ways. This role will be a key, early part in our efforts to build the ultimate customization platform for Reddit communities.
