“The front page of the internet," Reddit brings over 430 million people together each month through their common interests, inviting them to share, vote, comment, and create across thousands of communities.
We are looking for a Data Scientist to work with the Content and Communities team (CNC) to understand the health of Reddit’s content ecosystem, measure the strategic importance of different content verticals, and build out plans to incentivize high quality creators in those verticals. By partnering with feature engineering teams and product managers, your work will directly shape conversation on one of the largest websites on the internet.
How You’ll Have Impact:
Reddit is fundamentally a User Generated Content business, and you will be pivotal in getting more users to create content more often. This past year, the CNC team shipped some exciting new products, including a human-in-the-loop platform that have enabled us to understand our content mix at a scale never before possible, as well as tools to give creators content insights into how well the community is receiving their posts. We’ll be leveraging these capabilities as we charge full steam into 2021. If you love exploring complicated systems and digging into user incentives and motivations, you’ll be a great role.
What You’ll Learn:
Reddit is uniquely oriented around content creation in a community context, and analysis of communities is at the heart of where social science, psychology, network analysis, and statistics come together to help us better understand people and how they group and interact. This is a complex and exciting problem space to explore, and you’ll lead the charge on studying what motivates users to participate in communities, users’ behaviors vary across them, and why users choose to participate in some and not others.
You will work side by side with a world-class org of Engineering, ML, Search, Data Science, Data Warehouse, and Analytics practitioners who work together to create a variety of capabilities for Reddit to be more successful in its decision-making and product creation. In this process, you will be exposed to a variety of new techniques in modeling, experimentation, statistical frameworks, machine learning, deep learning, and causal inference.
