Are you an app developer looking for work in the San Francisco area? Reddit may be the place for you!

Reddit is looking to go mobile, and would like to begin by hiring mobile application developers. Their aim is to develop a simple app for easier information consumption, and also work with third party developers to help build more successful apps.

The complete list of skills and requirements are:

  • Love mobile apps. We’re excited about the potential of mobile and how it will change how we share our content with the world.
  • Be fearless. No idea is too crazy and no problem is too hard. We’re big on experimentation, trying and trying again. And we love the idea of trying something new.
  • Be curious. Help us figure out what is working, what isn’t working, and why. Be data-oriented and love the user.Have a sound appreciation for simplicity. The options are endless; our focus is on hiding the complexity from users and making our apps simple. The magic of the apps should be how simple it is for people to find great content and communities on reddit.
  • Get things done. Our team is small, but our vision is large. We use Hall and IRC to share ideas and coordinate. We make decisions and move fast. Experience shipping apps on a quick release cycle is a plus.
  • Front end experience. Strong Java skills (for Android) or Objective C (for iOS or Mac apps) are needed. A design background (Android/iOS/HTML design/styling/layout work) is helpful. Love users. We want to help users find great content and communities that are interesting to them. We protect and respect user privacy.
  • Be able to work in San Francisco, CA. Our office is in San Francisco, we love it here, and you should, too.
