We’re evolving and continuing our mission to bring community, belonging, and empowerment to everyone in the world. Providing a delightful and relevant experience to our users applies to our Ads like all of our offerings, and we’re excited to build a product that is best-in-class for our users and advertisers. The year ahead is a busy one! This is a general post for multiple teams. If any of these points resonate, don’t hesitate to apply and learn more about what we’re working on. 

Within Reddit Ads we aim to enhance the user experience by enabling users to discover products and services that are relevant to their interests and communities on Reddit. The mission of the Ads Quality team is to improve Redditors’ browsing experience on our platform, from the moment an ad is presented, to post click events that may lead to further actions on advertisers’ products. The effort is to help combat ad blindness and fatigue, in return, increase CTR for high quality ads and encourage a healthier bidding environment for all advertisers.

As the Software Engineer for Ads Quality, you will seek out and champion opportunities to improve the value for users and advertisers on Reddit and you will build and maintain the development of the next generation of the Ads Quality platform.

Some areas of opportunity you would be working on include:

  • Ad matching - what ad to show to a user given the current context. Includes engagement prediction models, features, content, ad and user classification. 
  • Ad load - how often and when should we show ads on Reddit?
  • User and content classification - inferring information about users and content to enable advertisers to target potential customers.

As an early member of this mission driven team, you will have lots of ownership and impact to shape our ads business to support overall Reddit's mission. Not only will your work directly impact hundreds of millions of users around the world, but your output will also shape the future of Ads on the Reddit platform! Technologies you might work with include:

  • Languages: Scala, Go, Python
  • Frameworks: Spark, Thrift, Kafka
  • Datastores: Postgres, Cassandra, Druid, Redis, BigQuery
  • Tools: Kubernetes, Argo, Docker

If you appreciate real technical challenges and you'd like to be part of the team that transforms Reddit Ads into a world class platform and a highly effective marketplace, come join us!
