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

We’re hiring an engineering manager to oversee the Ads Integrity team within the Ads Engineering org. Ads provide the fuel for Reddit’s mission – it’s our primary source of revenue. This team is focused on protecting reddit and end users from bad ads, primarily through Ad Review. All ads at reddit are reviewed to ensure compliance with policies. Ad Review is one of the primary mechanisms we use to maintain a low fraud/bad debt amount, and it ensures high quality advertisements are sent to our ad auction to be considered for delivery. 

You’ll be managing a distributed team of 4-6 software engineers until the end of 2022. This team will likely grow 100%+ in 2023, so you should be prepared to hire and onboard 4-8 FTEs and scale up short-term contracting help where necessary.

In 2023, reddit ads will be expanding its ad formats offerings - and there is a large dependency on this team to build the toolset required to support Ad Review growing orders of magnitude more than the current scale. You will be responsible for ensuring execution on the pre-committed, high-visibility, high-priority roadmap items to enable this workstream, as well as the other KPI-driven 2023 roadmap items. 

You will work closely with multiple PMs to find opportunities to move our 2023 KPIs in addition to the already planned 2023 roadmap items. You will be responsible for partnering with the PM to develop long-term vision for the team and the organization. 

 

Responsibilities

  • Lead and manage a team of backend and full-stack engineers, from junior to senior levels.
  • Grow the team by hiring and retaining software engineers
  • Set and enforce a high-quality bar for code, system design, and verbal/written communication. 
  • Set and support a culture of data-informed decision making, with transparency and efficient processes
  • Collaborate with product managers, data scientists, and other internal stakeholders to identify opportunities for system improvements and product enhancements
  • Partner with senior and peer management on roadmapping and execution
  • Participate in the full development cycle: design, development, QA, experimentation, analysis, launch, and monitoring
  • Help your direct reports with career development through regular performance management processes

Qualifications

  • 2+ year of supporting and growing engineering teams - ideally hiring and scaling a team over 100% growth
  • Experience managing a team including hiring, onboarding, and professional development
  • Several years of software development experience in front-end or fullstack engineering
  • You're technical, enough to solve almost any problem your team has yourself, but you prefer to guide your team into solving them
  • Excellent written and verbal 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
  • Experience with data driven/informed decision making
  • Familiarity with the team’s tech stack, or a proven history on quickly reaching proficiency in unfamiliar tools/languages 

Bonus Qualifications

  • Experience with Ads systems
  • Experience building internal tooling for operations teams
  • Experience building tooling to automate user generated content review

Tech Stack:

  • Languages: Typescript, Python, Golang
  • Frameworks: React/Redux, Thrift, Baseplate, Kafka, SQS
  • Datastores: Postgres, Druid, Redis, BigQuery
  • Tools: Kubernetes, Airflow, Docker

Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in Reddit’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
