Reddit is a social website where individuals with accounts can join networks of communities to talk about shared interests, hobbies, and passions, and comment on content and other relevant topics. Content on the site is either upvoted or downvoted, meaning the most interesting content rises to the top of each community.
Some of the most popular Reddit communities are built around breaking news, sports, movies, and TV fan theories, just to name a few categories.
Reddit was founded in 2005 and has 55M+ daily uses, 100K communities, and 50B+ monthly views.

Incredible Fact: Reddit Is Evolving Its Workforce
As Reddit aims to grow its workforce, the experience of working at Reddit will likely be different for each employee.
Like most large companies, Reddit transformed to a remote workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic and realized that there's no going back now as employees demand this type of flexibility. While there are still some positions that will be tied to an office, most employees will have the option to work wherever they want.
"Reddit will be able to find and hire more amazing talent wherever they live, opening up more meaningful opportunities for diversity," the company states on its blog.
As a result of this shift, Reddit also committed to eliminating geographic compensation zones in the U.S., meaning that compensation will be tied to pay ranges of high-cost areas such as San Franciso and New York, regardless of where an employee lives in the U.S.
For those employees who do return to the office, they'll be greeted with casual and coffee-shop-style seating, private space for heads-down focusing, larger bookable resources and collaboration spaces for teams to strategically meet, and no fixed desks. Instead, there will be neighborhoods for teams to gather and bookable desks for employees working in the office, according to the company blog.
What Employees Have To Say About Reddit
Reddit has a culture score of 4.2/5 on employer review website Glassdoor, and company leadership received a 94% approval rate.
"The culture at Reddit is incredible. Even virtually! We learn from our mistakes and actually take action. Leadership is transparent and humble," one employee wrote in a Glassdoor review.
Popular benefits and perks at Reddit include:
- Vacation plan - employees get flexible unlimited vacation days
