Mission: To bring community and belonging to everyone in the world.

arrow

Act like an owner: Our mission is larger than what any individual can accomplish on their own. Think beyond yourself and your team. When making decisions, put Reddit’s mission first.

arrow

Bias towards action: Much of our work is not predictable, which means we need to be not only flexible, but also aggressive in taking on new challenges as they arise. Instead of debating the perfect owner or waiting for the perfect solution, be the owner and take action.

arrow

Evolve: The world is constantly evolving, and we need to evolve with it. Only by continually improving, learning, and taking calculated risks to find new opportunities—both for the business and for ourselves as individuals—will we succeed.

arrow

Keep reddit real: Reddit is a vast, vibrant, diverse, and sometimes weird place. We celebrate diversity, both in our communities and in our company.

arrow

Remember the human: We treat others the way we’d like to be treated, and we remember our actions and words affect real people, sometimes in ways that we cannot see. We understand that Reddit plays a significant role in people’s lives, and it’s our duty to provide them a quality service and safe experience.
