About Reddit

Dive into anything

Actively Hiring
4.7 Rated

Reddit is a community of communities where people can dive into anything through experiences built around their interests, hobbies, and passions. Our mission is to bring community, belonging, and empowerment to everyone in the world. Reddit users submit, vote, and comment on content, stories, and discussions about the topics they care about the most. From pets to parenting, there’s a community for everybody on Reddit and with over 50 million daily active users, it is home to the most open and authentic conversations on the internet. For more information, visit

In keeping with our mission to bring community, belonging, and empowerment to everyone in the world, Reddit facilitates a delightful and relevant advertising experience that’s best-in-class for our users and advertisers. Ads are the fuel that power Reddit’s mission, and the year ahead is a busy one!

Our mission on the Revenue Lifecycle team is to enable a high quality and trustworthy financial partnership between advertisers and Reddit. We own Ads Billing and Payments – the foundation of our Ads business. We partner across product, design, legal, finance, privacy, and operations to ensure advertisers having a seamless financial experience on our platform. Some example projects that the team is working on:

  • Internationalization efforts – Build support for new payment methods and currencies. Add features to support customers’ tax requirements in their countries.
  • Codify sales contracts into funding sources that put system constraints on ad delivery, based on budgetary discretion of the customer.
  • Re-build our customer facing UI for our managed advertisers – the segment of our customer base that has reddit sales’ support. Create features expected for b2b relationships – detailed receipts and invoices, visibility into lines of credit and available funds.
  • Design roles-based permissions to support business-management of their advertiser accounts.
  • End-to-end automation of lines of credit – advertisers apply for credit on the ads platform, the credit check policy is executed automatically, then converted into ads credit that enables ad delivery in our platform.

If you appreciate real technical challenges and you’d like to be part of the team that makes Reddit a sustainable, long-term business, come join us!


  • Technical oversight over the revenue lifecycle from customer-facing payment experience, billing to quote-to-cash process.
  • Design, implement, and operate our critical and scalable systems – ranging from our billing ledger, payment processing and financial fraud detection system.
  • Drive and coordinate large-scale projects spanning Frontend, Backend/Infra, data pipeline and ML components.
  • Work across teams and functions to understand product requirements, evaluate trade-offs, and deliver the solutions needed to support Reddit’s Ads business.
  • Advocate for and apply best practices when it comes to availability, scalability, operational excellence, and cost management.
  • Guide the approach and execution of the team through partnership with the engineering manager and product manager.


  • 7+ years of software development experience in one or more general purpose programming languages (Java, Scala, Go, C++, Python).
  • Deep understanding of large scale backend service design.
  • Expertise in Ads billing or payment.
  • Team-level tech lead experience.
  • Experience in quote to cash process is a plus.


  • Comprehensive Health Benefits
  • Retirement Savings plan with matching contributions
  • Workspace benefits for your home office
  • Personal & Professional development funds
  • Family Planning Support
  • Flexible Vacation & Reddit Global Days Off
