Senior Software Engineer - Financial Platform

Come build the future of Discord’s business with us! We are looking for impact-focused full-stack engineers to join our world-class Revenue group as we accelerate Discord’s growth through the creation of compelling paid products. These products allow us to grow our business while keeping Discord’s core functionality free, and without selling ads or user data. You will be reporting to the Engineering Manager of Financial Platform. To learn more about Discord Engineering, take a look at our engineering blog!

What you'll be doing

  • Work with your squad to build the financial systems and integrations that underpin Discord’s existing business lines, and enable new revenue streams across Android, iOS, and Web
  • Run revenue operations side by side with our finance and accounting teams
  • Collaborate with business development to forge strategic partnerships
  • Partner with CX, Data Science, and feature teams across the company to evolve Discord’s payments and payouts platforms
  • Improve reliability, observability, and stability of Discord’s billing system

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), analytics (BigQuery, Looker, Mode)
  • You view mistakes as learning opportunities and build upon your successes. You challenge yourself and those around you to continuously improve
  • You have an 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
  • You believe in solving a problem completely rather than simply shipping a solution. You operate autonomously on your commitments

Bonus Points

  • Experience working on revenue/monetization teams
  • Knowledge of accounting, revenue operations, or payments
  • A love of solving puzzles and using data to answer questions

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!
