Senior Data Scientist, Safety Insights

Reddit is continuing to grow our teams with the best talent. We're completely remote friendly and will continue to be after the pandemic.

The Trust & Safety Org (T&S) 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, safety operations, security, and privacy. We unravel hard problems that cut across T&S 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.
