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 front page of the internet,” Reddit brings over 500 million people together each month through their common interests, inviting them to share, vote, comment, and create across thousands of communities. Come for the cats, stay for the empathy.
Video on Reddit is one of the fastest growing areas within the company. After acquiring Dubsmash, we’ve unified our efforts to build the next generation video surface, brand new creation tools and a home where creators can thrive. The goal of the creators team is to make Reddit an indispensable utility in creators’ daily lives for content creation and community building. The Creators team is one of the key pillars for the Video team and contributes by being a brand new hub for creators to live on Reddit and foster new communities.
