  • Own the operational processes for updating, managing, and validating all local programmable and editorial surfaces.
  • Leverage Reddit search and knowledge of the platform to identify the best, most unique, or freshest local content and communities to surface to US users.

  • Measure, analyze and improve content quality and performance on a range of metrics to ensure we’re building best-in-class content experiences that perform well and delight our users.

  • Proactively identify opportunities to create better user experiences on-platform as it relates to programmable content surfaces
