Reddit – Why Work For Us?


The Conversation Starts Here

At Reddit, you’ll help build something that encourages millions around the world to think more, do more, learn more, feel more – and maybe even laugh more.

Reddit is one of the top ten most popular sites in the world. With more than 330 million unique users per month and just under 500 employees total, everyone who works here has an enormous opportunity to make a real impact with their work.

We tripled in size in the last two years, and we’re on track to grow even more in 2019. We’ve built out incredible teams across the company, for everything from engineering to media partnerships. 

Join us in building "the Front Page of the Internet"

We’ve got big plans, and the only way we can accomplish them is with a team of passionate, talented humans who are excited to help us bring our communities to everyone in the world.

Reddit is a place unlike any other, where our employees (better known as Snoos) are encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work with them, just like our users do on our platform. Our uniqueness is the essence of Reddit, both on our platform and in our offices, and we are dedicated to cultivating and preserving that as we grow.

Employee Resource and Interest Groups

We strive to create a space that’s inclusive of our employees’ cultures and interests. One of the ways we do this by providing them with resource groups that bring them together with others who have similar needs. Some of the groups we’ve established support women in tech, those who identify as LGBTQ, those with children, and many more, and we continue to add to our list of resource groups.

We also support our fellow Snoos is by getting involved in the events and initiatives that matter most to them. We march alongside them at the SF Pride Parade, host guest speakers to talk about topics that are important to them and share our office with their communities.

What Would Snoo Do?

Our values describe who we are and who we want to be. We know we have a huge responsibility to the hundreds of millions of people that frequent our platform, which is why every action we take is guided by five pervading principles:


 Evolve

The world is constantly evolving, and we need to evolve with it. Only by continually improving, learning, and taking calculated risks to find new opportunities—both for the business and for ourselves as individuals—will we succeed.

 Bias Towards Action


Much of our work is not predictable, which means we need to be not only flexible, but also aggressive in taking on new challenges as they arise. Instead of debating the perfect owner or waiting for the perfect solution, be the owner and take action.

 Put your Customer First

Know who your customer is and strive to address their needs. Whoever your customers are, listen to them, understand their needs, and set goals that measure your success as a product of their happiness. If it’s good for your customer, it’s probably good for Reddit.

 Keep Reddit Real


Reddit is a vast, vibrant, diverse, and sometimes weird place. We celebrate diversity, both in our communities and in our company.

Remember the Human


We treat others the way we’d like to be treated, and we remember our actions and words affect real people, sometimes in ways that we cannot see. We understand that Reddit plays a significant role in people’s lives, and it’s our duty to provide them a quality service and safe experience.

    I have been working at Reddit full-time

    Pros

    Huge opportunity, lots of areas for easy growth, great people/team. Great experience so far and while we have our problems, I feel confident that we are moving in the right direction. Great work life balance and benefits as well!

    Cons

    Still a company in midst of transitioning from one platform (old reddit) to the new platforms (redesign, apps, etc). Although company has been around for awhile, lots of the products just got started in the last two years which means there’s still a lot to fix/improve/build.

    Community Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Reddit (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and received an interview request within 1 business day. The interview was scheduled to be 2 days later and was standard, some basic questions covering experience and interests. I was told I'd be a good fit for the position and that I can expect to hear back within 2-3 business days. 2-3 business days passed by and I didn't hear back from the recruiter so I sent a quick follow-up email. Another week passed, I sent another follow-up email, but still did not receive a response.

    Pretty frustrating, but safe to say I was ghosted by the recruiter.
