Yishan Wong (Chinese: 黃易山; pinyin: Huáng Yìshān) was the  CEO of Reddit from March 2012 until his resignation in November 2014. He is also the co-founder of Mountain View coworking space Sunfire Offices, and an advisor at Quora. Since April 2011, Wong has been a contributing editor at Forbes magazine.
Wong worked as a senior engineering manager at PayPal from 2001 to 2005 until he joined Facebook as a director of engineering on projects including crowd translation. Before leaving in 2010, he took a liking to Reddit and began posting there. After three months of talks with Reddit in late 2011, Wong was offered the position of CEO, an offer which he claims friends met with "uproarious laughter".
In 2012, when asked about various controversial Reddit communities, Wong expressed that the site should platform objectionable content, saying "We will not ban legal content even if we find it odious or if we personally condemn it." In 2013, he hired Ellen Pao to the board of Reddit as the Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships and would later recommend her as CEO. In 2014, Wong took the unusual step of deriding a previous employee who complained about the circumstances surrounding his termination in an AMA. One month later, Reddit executive Sam Altman announced that Yishan Wong was leaving after being unable to garner support for a proposal to move the Reddit office from San Francisco to Daly City. Wong, who thought newer employees would prefer to work in a less expensive area, stated that before the disagreement he had considered leaving due to an abundance of stress.
