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

The Trust & Safety Org (T&S) is one of Reddit’s biggest divisions, and Safety Insights works across the entire org to provide qualitative (user research) and quantitative (data science) insights for product development, scaled abuse detection/mitigation, threat intelligence, safety operations, security, and privacy. We unravel hard problems that cut across T&S domains, and guide product development to protect our users from bad experiences. In the Safety Insights team, we value asking who’s missing, surfacing the deeper questions, up-leveling our peers, and facilitating good conversations. Our job is tough, but the impact is huge.

You will gain domain expertise in both safety enforcement and product development, and be part of key decisions both within and outside of Trust & Safety.

What You’ll Do

  • Identify actionable and impactful insights through metrics and analyses
  • Partner with product teams to guide and assess our safety product development
  • Partner with safety enforcement teams to guide and assess our enforcement strategies
  • Be an end-to-end project owner from ideation to implementation and influence -- whatever that’s needed to create impact and carry out our mission

Who You Might Be:

  • 4+ years of data science and product analytics industry experience
  • 2+ years of experience informing and influencing product or business decision-making
  • Proficiency with relational database (e.g., SQL)
