For much of its existence, Reddit has been a relatively small engineering organization. Despite being one of the world’s busiest sites, there were many millions of users for every Reddit engineer.
The last few years have seen Reddit engineering more than triple in size (and ambition), leading to a significant change in process, tooling, and culture. Greg Taylor discusses Reddit’s evolution and explains how one of the world’s busiest sites develops, deploys, and operates services at significant scale. You’ll learn where things are today and get a preview of what the future holds for Reddit engineering.
Greg Taylor leads Reddit’s Release Engineering Group within the company’s Infrastructure Division. He and his team primarily help Reddit engineers get their systems from concept to production. This involves developing tooling, building CI/CD pipelines, and a healthy serving of Kubernetes.
