Steve Huffman is co-founder and CEO of Reddit, the fourth most visited site in the United States. He and Alexis Ohanian created Reddit in 2005, following an invitation by incubator Y Combinator after their unsuccessful pitch for a food-ordering mobile app. After selling Reddit in 2006, Huffman launched and led Hipmunk, the airfare search engine. He returned to Reddit as CEO in 2015, leading its development of native image and video hosting, a new mobile app, and a redesign. A mentor at Hackbright Academy, a San Francisco-based coding school for women, Huffman was named to Inc. Magazine’s 2011 30 Under 30 list and Forbes’s 30 Under 30 list in 2012.
