I am a former reddit employee. AMA.
As not-quite promised...
I was a reddit admin from 07/2013 until 03/2014. I mostly did engineering work to support ads, but I also was a part-time receptionist, pumpkin mover, and occasional stabee (ask /u/rram). I got to spend a lot of time with the SF crew, a decent amount with the NYC group, and even a few alums.
Edit 1: I keep an eye on a few of the programming and tech subreddits, so this is a job or career path you'd like to ask about, feel free.
Edit 2: Off to bed. I'll check in in the morning.
Edit 3 (8:45 PTD): Off to work. I'll check again in the evening.
