Reddit to open an office in Dublin

Reddit officially announced last week that it is opening its first international office in Dublin.

The new office space will be located in Dublin 2, overlooking St. Stephen’s Green. The company plans to build its "Anti-Evil, Security, Community, and Engineering teams" with two dozen new roles in 2019. These teams are responsible for ensuring the integrity, security, and health of Reddit communities.

The team will work on core product development, site and user account security, and engineering solutions to detect and prevent policy-breaking content – while also adding additional capacity for those teams’ coverage across time zones.

Speaking last week, Reddit CTO, Chris Slowe said, "We’ve always taken the approach that our users’ safety and privacy matters. As our first international office, we chose Dublin to tap into the tech talent pool and extend our efforts focused on the health of the platform and user experience."
