The Creators team empowers creators to build belonging sustainably on Discord. We are constantly improving Server Subscriptions and adding new tools to it. We want to see creators succeed and grow their own businesses along with their user base. We believe that creators and communities play a vital role in Discord's overall mission of building belonging.

We're making it easy for Creators to build sustainable communities directly on Discord, and you could play an essential part in that mission. Creators are a big bet and we're blazing our own trail to make it awesome. We expect that this work will become an important part of Discord's journey to create belonging for everyone. Come and join us to build an exciting and new product!

What you'll be doing

  • Design and implement the tools from the models to the UI that creators will use to build communities that millions of users will see.
  • Pair with the other engineers on your team to write, review, and ship elegant and scalable code.
  • Partner with the other teams to build and use primitives. This includes our communities, billing, and growth engineering teams.
  • Mentor other engineers and help grow them into senior engineers.
  • Work with product managers, designers, and product marketers to cut through ambiguity and build a compelling way forward.
  • You will be reporting to the Engineering Manager of Creator Revenue.

What you should have

  • 5+ years of full-stack experience. Our tech stack is React, TypeScript, Python, and you're expected to have a high degree of expertise in those. You are comfortable writing APIs and services that can scale.
  • You have a sense for product and design. We don't operate in silos, and you'll collaborate with cross-function peers. You're comfortable sharing opinions and collaborate with them to make something great.
  • You understand the craft of software development and can level up those around you.
  • You take a holistic approach to problem solving. You believe in solving a problem from first principles rather than simply shipping a solution. You learn from your mistakes and work through obstacles with the rest of the 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!
