Join Reddit's Gold and Contributor Program team, driving an innovative initiative that allows users to convert Reddit Gold into real money through the "Contributor Program." As a key member, you'll shape the program's future, pushing product and tech boundaries. We've successfully launched the MVP and are expanding our team.
Our small, fast-paced engineering team seeks experienced engineers who understand product strategy, applying creative technical solutions. The Gold system update introduces a seamless way to purchase and award gold, with payouts based on the gold and karma earned on eligible contributions in the Contributor Program.
We are hiring a Staff Android Engineer who can lead the team to move incredibly fast while delivering a quality product. You'll work on the highest impact project in a team of brilliant engineers like yourself. In addition to building technology, you’ll contribute to the product and business strategy.
On the team, you will:
- Design, build and ship Android client features for users to monetize their contributions on Reddit.
- Move fast while balancing quality. We can’t afford extensive processes, and we also can’t afford show-stopping bugs. We need people who can balance speed with quality while quickly building brand-new products.
- Contribute meaningfully to team strategy. We give everyone a seat at the table and encourage active participation in planning for the future. Don’t just come along for the ride.
- Communicate effectively, within the team and across disciplines. Work closely with product managers and designers to craft compelling user experiences.
- 5+ years mobile development experience with multiple parts of the Android stack. We develop with Kotlin. Experience with Jetpack Compose strongly preferred.
- Ability to design and implement complex distributed systems operating under high load.
- Experience developing customer-facing public applications is preferred.
- Entrepreneurial spirit. On our team, everyone needs to act like a startup CEO. You must be self-directed, innovative, and biased towards action in fast-paced environments. You live to build new things and thrive in ambiguity and even failure.
- Excellent communication skills. You must be able to collaborate effectively with teams in a fully-remote environment, and discuss complex topics with technical and non-technical audiences.
- Experience mentoring engineers, owning team processes, and leading cross-functional projects is preferred.
Reddit is continuing to grow our teams with the best talent. We're completely remote friendly. Apply today to learn more!
