Staff Program Manager, Community Empowerment

Reddit is a community of communities where people can dive into anything through experiences built around their interests, hobbies, and passions. With 50M+ people visiting 100K+ communities daily, we are home to the most open and authentic conversations on the internet.

We are seeking a compassionate, analytical, and detail-oriented Staff Program Manager to oversee a range of programs with the ultimate goal of empowering Reddit users. Leading high visibility and high-impact projects like administering our 1M Community Fund and standing up User Councils, success looks like executing experiences that provide value and opportunity to the Reddit community. 

We are a diverse team committed to building an inclusive environment. We’re not perfect, but we listen, admit our mistakes, and evolve. We believe your perspective, skills, passion, and empathy are just as important as degrees or brand names. We encourage applications from all people.
