Reddit is poised to rapidly innovate and grow like no other time in its history, and user safety is a critical accelerant of that growth. We are looking for a Staff Data Scientist to join our Safety Insights Data Science team, and lead strategic and product analytics for community safety, moderator safety, and connecting safety signals to users’ safety experiences.

Your impact will be in the forms of strategic influence, execution support, cross-functional thought leadership, and analytical leadership in the data science team.

The Safety Org is one of Reddit’s biggest divisions, and Safety Insights works across the entire org to provide qualitative (user research) and quantitative (data science) insights for product development, scaled abuse detection/mitigation, threat intelligence, and safety operations. We unravel hard problems that cut across safety domains, and guide product development to protect our users from bad experiences. In the Safety Insights team, we value asking who’s missing, surfacing the deeper questions, up-leveling our peers, and facilitating good conversations. Our job is tough, but the impact is huge.
