According to a job posting from Greenhouse, Reddit is seeking a senior backend engineer for a platform responsible for “the millions of users who create, buy, sell and use NFT-powered digital goods.” This position requires at least five years of experience in backend development and the ability to “design and implement complex, distributed systems under heavy loads”.
“If we find one thing at NFTs, they also have an incredible power to create a feeling of participation and belonging,” the job posting says.

Users can also earn the platform’s Community Points – a digital currency-like token in the shape of a moon or brick – by posting certain content to receive rewards.
