and the survey says...

The results are still coming in from the survey we ran a little while back, but as promised (and as we were reminded yesterday) here are a few more results. In case these aren't enough, you can re-read the results we published earlier.

Please rate on a scale of 1-5 (1 being dead weight and 5 being the office genius), how much smarter are you than to your coworkers/bosses?

 3% - 1 (dead weight)
 3% - 2
30% - 3
41% - 4
24% - 5 (office genius)

This was really exciting for us to learn, as we can now tell advertisers they're marketing to the smartest people on the Internet, since almost a quarter of you are the office genius. Sweet.

And here are a few more...

Male/Female: 86% / 14%
Average age: 29.7
Average household income: $75,700

The rest will be dished out as we get them. Thanks again to all of you who participated. We know how much fun surveys are :-/

now, with rounded corners!

You may have noticed we haven't released anything substantive in a while. Well, so has Conde Nast. In light of this, we made some quick changes that are part of a bigger redesign coming soon.

We rearranged the login area to accommodate a new ad size. We also added a handful of new subreddits that should both target under-represented communities  on reddit, and can be sold by the lovely ad-sales team.

Raldi, I'm going to go ahead and downvote this on your behalf since it isn't an announcement that tags are finally here.

Speaking of which, we're planning on switching to the new reddit this week. We have a handful of small glitches yet, and it could be a touch faster, but we're basically there. I'm sure the transition is going to be messy, but we can't wait to get it behind us... and in front of you.

Vote up if you'd like to work for reddit.

Reddit is hiring again!

We are looking for a new programmer to supplement our team. Most of our work is done in Python, and Unix/Linux skills are a must. Really, we just need a fourth for our post-lunch video games.

An engineering degree is preferred, and experience with databases, web development, and scaling issues are all desirable.

The job is in San Francisco, CA.

Please send your resume to jobs reddit com (this is what we'll be looking at).
