Our mission is to bring community and belonging to everyone in the world. Reddit is a community of communities where people can dive into anything through experiences built around their interests, hobbies, and passions. With more than 50 million people visiting 100,000+ communities daily, it is home to the most open and authentic conversations on the internet. From pets to parenting, skincare to stocks, there’s a community for everybody on Reddit. For more information, visit

Reddit has an amazing history of individual and community driven innovation. With no official support, thousands of user scripts and self-identified bots run against our API and enrich the experience Redditors have on our platform. With effort and resources, and the product leader, we can take our user’s creative energy and turn it into so much more: a developer platform that will allow third party developers to run code on Reddit. 

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 are looking for a head of developer platform who will bring a holistic vision for where Reddit should evolve its API and developer toolkit. As a newly-created role, we provide a tremendous opportunity to transform Reddit from a content platform to an experience and content platform. 

As our head of developer platform, you will lead the articulation and delivery of our developer platform strategy. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to join the key pillar of one of the most important consumer products on the Internet. 

  • You will be the leader for Reddit’s Developer Platform. 
  • Key responsibilities include: creating the vision, building roadmaps, driving execution and delivering on outcomes.
  • You need to have the ability to hire, lead, mentor and retain high performing product managers
  • Collaborate with engineering and product leaders to set a long-term strategy.
  • Manage budgeting, headcount planning, and working with cross-functional partners (e.g., legal, community, PR, etc.) 
  • Champion the work and accelerate our evolution towards a democratized open platform anyone can build on top of.
  • 10+ years overall product management experience
  • At your core you are driven by the thought of making a difference for other developers and in our users’ lives. 
  • You have successfully built and scaled large teams in both start-up and established development organizations.
  • Your track record includes bringing new products to market and maturing them with specific experience building world-class developer experiences.
  • You are a leader: internally, you are able to influence and engage; externally, you are capable of recruiting the best talent. 
  • You may not be coding today but you own and are able to mediate and influence critical architectural decisions. 
  • You like the challenge of simplifying complex systems, and you always consider the big picture even when acting locally.
Bonus points for
  • A long time Redditor who understands our product and users!
  • Humble expert with a sense of urgency
  • Skilled at taking complex topics and making them simple
  • Transparent judgment and stands behind their decisions, right or wrong
  • Team focus with an ability to lead in a matrixed organization
