We’re evolving and continuing our mission to bring community, belonging, and empowerment to everyone in the world. Providing a delightful and relevant experience to our users applies to our Ads like all of our offerings, and we’re excited to build a product that is best-in-class for our users and advertisers. The year ahead is a busy one!

The mission of the Ads Safety & Verification team is to protect the Reddit ads ecosystem so that users have a safe ads experience and legitimate advertisers trust Reddit. We build full stack, high scale products that span Reddit’s consumer-facing apps and ads systems. We own integrations with metrics verification and brand safety partners and operate services that scale to reliably handle tens of millions of requests per day.

We’re small, scrappy, and are able to execute on our most critical pillars with outsized impact:

  • Ads Policy Enforcement - Develop safety tools and systems to enforce Ads Policy accurately and efficiently.
  • Brand Safety Signals - Ensure brand safe ad adjacency with accurate and scalable safe-for-ads classifications and build industry leading tools for advertisers to control what content is appropriate for their ads to appear alongside.
  • Verification - Increase confidence in the effectiveness of Reddit’s ads platform and unlock revenue growth via integrations with trusted ad verification partners.
