About Discord

Founded in 2015, 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.

Job Description

Discord is about giving people the power to create space to find belonging in their lives. We want to make it easier for you to talk regularly with the people you care about. We want you to build genuine relationships with your friends and communities close to home or around the world. Original, reliable, playful, and relatable. These are the values that connect our users and our employees at Discord.

We're looking for a technical, mission-focused, highly driven Engineering Manager to join our Core Product department, reporting into our Director of Engineering, Core Product, Nick Reynolds. Core Product is responsible for helping users get the most out of Discord and helping Discord reach our goals of driving highly engaged users. You will lead a full-stack team of engineers working across platforms to build products with an incredibly high bar for delight and engagement.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Collaborate with Product, Design, Data Science, UX Research, and Marketing to drive your team’s vision and roadmap
  • Make sound first-principle decisions around resourcing, and making the rationale clear to partners and team members
  • Partner with your org leader on strategic planning and to improve the Engineering organization and uphold our workplace philosophy
  • Helping drive product decisions with our goals in mind and holding a high bar for the quality of our features
  • Use your technical expertise to move fast, make tradeoffs, and ensure your team delivers with high quality

You Will Thrive In This Role If

  • You have 5+ years of experience as a Software Engineer, working across the stack (mobile, web, backend) building user experiences
  • You have 2+ years of experience as an Engineering Manager, leading teams of 5 or more engineers building user facing products
  • You have a product sense and take pride in understanding your customers
  • You have worked in a product team with clear metrics goals
  • You are very goal oriented and always strive to win
  • You are motivated to help your team members succeed and have experience growing engineers
  • You are excited to get hands-on – we’re looking for someone to manage primarily but our leaders should feel very comfortable jumping into code to understand our product better and, when needed, to make changes directly.

Bonus Points

  • You are a Discord user, and understand the core features and flow of Discord communications
  • You have experience with React Native


The US base salary range for this full-time position is $223,000 to $245,000 + equity + benefits. Our salary ranges are determined by role and level. Within the range, individual pay is determined by additional factors, including job-related skills, experience, and relevant education or training.
