In keeping with our mission to bring community, belonging, and empowerment to everyone in the world, Reddit facilitates a delightful and relevant advertising experience that’s best-in-class for our users and advertisers. Ads are the fuel that power Reddit’s mission, and the year ahead is a busy one!

Our mission on the Revenue Lifecycle team is to enable a high quality and trustworthy financial partnership between advertisers and Reddit. We own Ads Billing and Payments - the foundation of our Ads business.

We partner across product, design, legal, finance, privacy, and operations to ensure advertisers having a seamless financial experience on our platform. Some example projects that the team is working on:

  • Credit Line & Agency Experience - Build an E2E Credit Line solution and Agency experience from scratch. This pivotal initiative is crucial in unlocking agency spend and sustaining evergreen Ads campaigns, serving as a major driver of our company's revenue growth.
  • Business-First Finance Solution: Transform Reddit Business Manager with a pioneering finance solution, enabling cross-business credit line sharing, sophisticated permission management, and detailed financial insights and reporting.
  • Next-Generation Ads Billing System - Revolutionize our Ads billing system and data pipeline, enhancing its accuracy, reliability, and scalability. This is instrumental in addressing emerging billing and payment scenarios, ensuring our systems evolve in sync with business expansion and stay responsive to evolving market demands.
  • Ad spend and budget management - Codify sales contracts into funding sources that put system constraints on Ad delivery, based on budgetary discretion of the customer, e.g. campaign budget, Ad account budget, etc..
  • Internationalization & SMB Expansion - Enhance our global reach and support for small and medium-sized business (SMB) advertisers by building fully self-serve payment experience, integrating diverse payment methods, supporting multiple currencies, and adapting to international tax regulations.
  • Financial Fraud Detection: Create a cutting-edge fraud detection and review system. This is crucial in minimizing uncollectible revenue and reducing scams on our platform, thereby protecting the financial integrity of our services and maintaining user trust.
  • Billing Center and Managed Advertisers - Build the new Billing Center that enables advanced features for B2B relationships and managed advertisers. e.g. detailed receipts and invoices, visibility into lines of credit and available funds, smooth transition between Credit Card and managed billing, etc..
