Job Description

If you're excited about product-driven growth engineering then Discord is the place for you!

Product Engineers at Discord are focused on building communities for people and building the next generation of our products. Our team is a small, nimble group that impact our millions of monthly active users. We want to build new features and improve our existing products like Voice, Video and Chat. We look for people who pay attention to detail, who have a strong design sense, and most importantly: have compassion for our users.

We are trying to achieve a lot, but, we are in a marathon, not a sprint, so good work/life balance is just as important as working with smart, experienced people (like you!?). Join our team, and you can help us build the next generation of products.

What you'll work on daily

    Work on Discord in React & Python, but also using Rust, Elixir, Kotlin, and Swift.
    Build new features across our iOS, Android, Web apps and our marketing site.
    Architect elegant and maintainable code with a focus on autonomy and support from the team.
    Work on meaningful projects that allow for users to have more delightful conversations
    Work with your squad to product features across the UX, API, and services layers.
    Work with designers to develop delightful interfaces and experiences.
    Using experiments and user research to iterate and learn

Things we look for

    4+ years experience writing Javascript (React, TypeScript), Android (Kotlin, RxJava), or iOS (React Native, Objective-C) development frameworks and fundamentals. 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.
    4+ years experience in backend development (we use Python primarily)
    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 working with other engineers, and designers and non-engineers.
    Experience making hard trade-offs between important goals to get the right things built quickly
    A collaborative culture where growth from within is encouraged
    Open-source leadership and contributions.

We offer

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

Benefits and Perks

    Medical insurance including Health, Dental, Vision
    13 paid holidays
    Unlimited sick days
    Parental Leave and fertility benefits
    Transgender benefits
    Supported-employee clubs and Employee Resource Groups
    Commuter Contributions of $270 a month (pretax)
    Daily lunches and unlimited snacks
    Monthly gym and fitness stipend
