Reddit has lost another high-ranking female staffer days after CEO Ellen Pao stepped down from her post: Bethanye Blount, who was hired as the company’s VP of engineering just two months ago, has left the company.
Blount worked for more than three years for Facebook before joining Reddit this summer.
The departure was first reported by Recode, and has since been confirmed by the company. Blount told Recode that she didn’t leave because of Pao’s resignation, but rather because she didn’t believe Reddit could make good on promises made to its community.
Reddit announced Pao’s resignation Friday after a tumultuous week, which was set off by the firing of longtime staffer Victoria Taylor.
And there are signs that troubles aren’t over for the popular but at times polarizing social news site: Former Reddit CEO Yishan Wong chimed in this week, accusing Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian of having turned Pao into a scapegoat for his own actions.
