Reddit is continuing to grow our teams with the best talent. We're completely remote friendly and will continue to be after the pandemic. Learn more about how we're evolving Reddit's workforce here.

We are looking for a Senior Data Scientist to work on our Reddit Talk team. Reddit Talk lets people have live audio conversations in their favorite communities. We have strong momentum with top subreddits hosting Talks ranging from AMAs (e.g., r/space with Chris Hadfield) to community conversations (e.g., r/dadjokes) attended by 10,000+ listeners. We’ve also built a community of moderators that we’re working with closely to expand this product. Our vision is to make Talk the go-to surface for live conversations on Reddit in all formats and we are doubling the team to make this happen. As the Senior Data Scientist embedded on the team, you will be essential in helping us dig through the massive amounts of Reddit data and help to build one of Reddit’s most exciting products with a best-in-class team and a tight-knit customer community.

Reddit sits in a unique place, where there is massive scale and yet there are still a lot of low hanging fruit opportunities that will immediately impact millions of users and make a visible difference in our business KPIs.

What You’ll Learn:
