Reddit is all about community, which impacts everything about our company, from our product design to our user-led approach to content moderation. At a time when tech policy and regulatory discussions are accelerating at both the federal and state level, community-governed approaches like Reddit’s must have a voice in the conversation. As Reddit continues to grow, it's important that we work closely and collaboratively with politicians, regulators, academics, and civil society to help them understand the big issues that affect our business, our users, and the open Internet. We're seeking a Policy Manager for the US to lead our government relations and public policy work. Reporting to the Director of Policy and with the help of an early-career policy analyst, you’ll engage with elected officials and their staff, explaining Reddit’s community-first governance model and educating them about the company and our users. You’ll analyze legislation, provide strategic input on advocacy campaigns, and engage industry groups, academics, and civil society on a wide range of tech policy issues. Ideal candidates will have solid tactical knowledge of US federal legislative and regulatory processes and structures, be enthusiastic advocates for the free and open internet, and believers in community self-determination online.


Responsibilities:

  • Engage with Congressional officials and staff to advance Reddit’s policy agenda, both generally and in response to specific legislative or regulatory matters.
  • Participate on behalf of the company in relevant industry bodies and associations. 
  • Work cooperatively with outside consultants/lobbyists.
  • Develop strategic approaches for Reddit’s government relations and public policy work in the US.
  • Engage with civil society, academics, and NGOs to educate them about Reddit’s unique model and where relevant, cooperate on advocacy initiatives of shared interest. 
  • Closely follow legislative and regulatory developments with potential to impact Reddit’s business. 
  • Produce written briefing materials as needed for Reddit executive team and senior management. 
  • Provide guidance to policymakers, advocacy groups, and other relevant partners on use of the Reddit platform.
  • Manage, mentor, and develop early-career policy analyst(s).

Qualifications:

  • At least 5 years of experience working in or engaging with Congress and/or relevant federal government agencies. 
  • Familiarity with Internet technologies and the policy environments that surround them, or an aptitude to quickly get up to speed on complex technical and regulatory issues.
  • Strong analytical capability, including the ability to summarize and distill complex legislation and processes for executives.
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills, sense of protocol, and comfort engaging with elected officials. 
  • Eagerness to cultivate and develop diverse talent, potentially remotely.
  • Commitment to embody and uphold Reddit’s Core Values.
