Remote job description

Come join us building the best-in-class messenger, where millions of people make Discord their place to talk and hang out with their friends. Our small, nimble messaging team is passionate about developing well-designed, scalable and innovative features to improve our core experience. We are looking for product driven thinkers who have compassion for our users and empower them to communicate in new and meaningful ways.

What you'll work on daily

  • Build new features across our iOS, Android, Web apps and the Discord backend systems. You will work all throughout the stack. It's ok if you don't know all of this right away!
  • Architect elegant and maintainable code with a focus on autonomy and support from the team. Propose and champion improvements to the product, engineering, and process.
  • Work on meaningful projects that allow for users to have more delightful conversations
  • Work with designers to develop delightful interfaces and experiences.
  • Fearlessly dive into the unknown alongside intelligent engineers challenging themselves and people around you

Things we look for

  • Full-stack experience. 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)
  • A growth mindset. You view mistakes as learning opportunities and build upon your successes. You challenge yourself and those around you to continuously improve
  • A focus on impact. You have a sharp eye for what changes can bring a product from good to great. You collaborate closely with product managers, designers, analysts, and other engineers to define great solutions to business problems
  • A sense of ownership. You believe in solving a problem completely rather than simply shipping a solution. You operate autonomously and follow through on your commitments

We offer

  • Regular creative learning sessions, skill shares, forums, guest speakers, and workshops
  • A collaborative culture where growth from within is encouraged

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!
