The Technical Program Management Office (Tech PMO) exists to accelerate, scale, and empower all teams at Reddit to do their best work and advance our company’s mission. We operate from within the office of the CTO, maximizing our ability to galvanize and drive technical programs and solutions to solve company-wide problems. Our reach extends across the entire company, driving key strategic focus areas for the business. 

What you’ll do: 

You will help plan and execute with a deep understanding of the processes, policies, and trade-offs that an opinionated cloud infrastructure stack will require. You will collaborate with leaders and TPMs across the company to build the processes necessary to streamline execution and ensure alignment to our long term strategy.

As with any infrastructure role your job will be to assist in continually modernizing Reddits stack via migrations, deprecations and service decomposition. All while balancing risk, coordinating across frontend, backend and revenue producing teams. There are long term programs with multiple milestones that require scoping, scheduling and coordination to achieve.

High quality technical program management is a distinct and high value skillset, and while the roles generally don’t involve direct management, they are a part of the organizational leadership. In this role, you will… 

  • Get Things Done. More than just displaying activity, counting sprint points, or delivering regular updates.  You actually bring programs to completion and deliver real accomplishments for the business, and help your teams understand the difference. 
  • Dive into Details. You understand the details of their programs and help guide them with and in active partnership with their teams.  You don’t just stay in the stratosphere or in an abstract process. You have the technical judgment to act as a partner with your teams in planning and decision making.
  • Make Work Repeatable. You create and improve processes that smooth the path for others and prevent and remove recurring organizational toil (and the lower quality bar that often allows).  You reuse processes developed elsewhere, and aid in adoption of standards where relevant.
  • Mentor & Lead. You are good at, and enjoy, informally aiding others in developing key organizational and program skills.  You’re a leader within the Program Management org, your programs, and support people in the process. 
  • Bring Order out of Chaos. You are known for leaving a program and the teams you support in a position of stronger organization than where they started, and those teams continue to succeed even when you are no longer specifically engaged in the program. 

Who you are:

  • 8+ years of collective experience in engineering and program management roles
  • Hands on experience with systems design & architecture related to software or infrastructure engineering
  • Strong communication and influencing skills
  • A team player mentality with the ability to work collaboratively across all levels of the organization
  • Proactive and curious by nature. You are creative and enjoy taking unique approaches to solve problems
  • Pragmatic; you take an iterative approach to developing processes and systems
  • Technical depth and judgment

Benefits:

  • Comprehensive Healthcare Benefits
  • 401k Matching
  • Workspace benefits for your home office
  • Personal & Professional development funds
  • Family Planning Support
  • Flexible Vacation (please use them!) & Reddit Global Wellness Days
  • 4+ months paid Parental Leave
  • Paid Volunteer time off
