Join us in building the future of ads on Reddit!

The Team:

The mission of the Brand Product team is to provide advertisers with the data and tools to show that they belong on Reddit. We’re a small team that builds full stack, high scale products that span Reddit’s consumer-facing apps and ads systems. We own integrations with metrics verification and brand safety partners and operate a service that scales to reliably handle tens of millions of requests per day.

We’re small, scrappy, and are able to execute on our most critical pillars with outsized impact:

  • Brand Suitability - Build industry leading tools for advertisers to control what content is appropriate for their ads to appear alongside.
  • Measurement - Increase confidence in the effectiveness of Reddit’s ads platform with third party verification where necessary and first party tools where possible. Our flagship product will be a brand new, in-house survey tool that offers advertisers statistically sound insights into their audiences.

About the role:

You’ll play a major role in both driving the iOS development for ads projects and tackling tough design and product problems alongside other ads engineers. We are responsible for the appearance and usability of every ad on Reddit users see, how many ads they see, and the content ads can appear next to. We work with cross-functional partners across product, design, and even business development to explore the next generation of ad experiences on Reddit. We are looking for a product-focused iOS engineer who is capable of working independently but also thrives in collaborative environments.

What you can expect from us:

  • Architect, build, and ship high-quality ad products for Reddit’s official iOS app
  • Spearhead the full iOS development cycle: design, develop, QA, experiment, analyze, and deploy
  • Work with a cross-functional team to build high quality experiences that meet customer needs
  • Contribute to the direction of future mobile architecture at Reddit
  • Improve Reddit for everyone. We constantly seek to balance advertiser needs with user experience with projects like reporting and hiding ads that put more control in the hands of Reddit users

What we can expect from you:

  • 5+ years of experience writing high quality iOS code
  • Expertise in Swift and Objective-C
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • Attention to detail (both technical and product-oriented) with every feature
  • Willingness to proactively collaborate cross functionally
  • Passion for developing scalable, well-designed software that improves people’s lives globally

Bonus Points:

  • Experience in ads domain
  • If you don’t feel like you meet all of the requirements, we encourage you to still apply!
