Reddit down to one developer

18 Mar, 2011

Two out of the three remaining Reddit programmers quietly left the social news community last week, Mike Schiraldi going to Google and David King going to Hipmunk where he joins Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. This means that the over one billion page view a month site is currently running with only one developer (Neil Williams, hired in November) and two sysadmins until it can hire new engineering staff.

The site has 14 million unique visits a month according to Google Analytics. Competitor Digg (which has 42 employees and has raised over $40M in funding) has around 9 million unique visitors down from about 16 million in August, according to Quantcast.
