Office space provider WeWork is set to build upon the engagement and interactivity it has with tenants having hired former Reddit administrator Victoria Taylor as its first director of digital community.
After being suddenly fired from her role at Reddit, a move which led to revolt by most of the site's users and eventually the resignation of its highly unpopular chief executive, Taylor has moved quickly to take on the new job in New York.
In a message where she thanked the Reddit community for its support in recent weeks, which included many of them taking down its most popular threads, Taylor said: "WeWork is aiming to support a global community of creators by building technology that connects these people around the world. And my goal will be to help strengthen the culture of their online platform.
"I'm excited to help bring all sorts of people together with the WeWork community as it continues to expand!"
Reddit's New York outfit was based within one of the 16 offices the company has in the city.
Taylor will begin her new role with immediate effect.
