What you'll be doing
  • Build new features across our iOS, Android, Web apps and our marketing site. You will work on every platform and own the full funnel. It's ok if you don't know all of this right away!
  • Work on meaningful projects that allow for new and existing users to have more delightful conversations
  • Architect elegant and maintainable code with a focus on autonomy and support from the team
  • Work with design, data, and marketing teams to build meaningful additions to the app that help users be more successful
  • Use experiments and user research to iterate and learn
  • Fearlessly dive into the unknown alongside intelligent engineers challenging themselves and people around you
What you should have
  • We're a multi-platform team, so it's important to have a solid understanding of the development frameworks and fundamentals of one or more of our platforms: web (React, TypeScript, Python API), Android (Kotlin, RxJava), or iOS (React Native, Objective-C, Swift). We don't expect everyone to be an expert in all of these, and everyone has their specialties, but the more platforms you're comfortable with (or want to learn!), the faster we can move.
  • Experience building and shipping product features. We do far more than build landing pages
  • An eye for visuals. Design skills are not required but you can critique and modify existing designs
  • Experience building for experimentation, iteration, and driving metrics.
  • Experience working cross-functionally; particularly with marketing teams
  • Hunger to have an impact on our business
Bonus Points
  • Strong open-source leadership or contributions
  • Experience making hard tradeoffs between important goals to get the right things built quickly
  • Direct experience on a growth team

About Us

Discord is a voice, video and text app that helps friends and communities come together to hang out and explore their interests — from artists and activists, to study groups, sneakerheads, plant parents, and more. With 150 million monthly users across 19 million active communities, called servers, Discord has grown to become one of the most popular communications services in the world. Discord was built without selling ads or user data and instead, offers a premium subscription called Nitro that gives users special perks like higher quality streams and fun customizations.

We’re working toward an inclusive world where no one feels like an outsider, where genuine human connection is a click, text chat, or voice call away. A place where everyone can find belonging. Challenging? Heck yes. Rewarding? Double heck yes. It’s a mission that gives us the chance to positively impact millions of people all over the world. So if this strikes a chord with you, come build belonging with us!
