The Creator Revenue team empowers creators to build belonging sustainably on Discord. We are growing our premium memberships service and scaling it out to larger and larger audiences. 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 our overall mission of building belonging. This should also be safe by design, and we are building a number of features to promote safety for creators and their communities.

Come and join us to build an exciting and new product!

We’re making it easy for Creators to build sustainable communities directly on Discord, and you could play an essential part in that mission. This is a new endeavor for Discord, meaning we’re blazing our own trail. We expect that this work will become an important part of Discord’s journey to create belonging for everyone.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Architect and implement the services that creators will rely on to safely build communities that over 150 million users will see. These will integrate deeply with Discord’s current safety infrastructure. 
  • Pair with the other engineers on your team to write, review, and ship elegant and scalable code.
  • Partner with other safety engineering teams to build and use primitives. This includes our communities, billing, and growth engineering orgs. 
  • Adapt to a constantly evolving landscape. Bad actors change their tactics regularly and we need to iterate and adapt faster than they do.
  • Work with product managers, designers, and product marketers to cut through ambiguity and build a compelling way forward.

You'll Thrive In This Role If...

  • Substantial product engineering experience. Even if you don’t have direct experience with our tech stack (React, TypeScript, Python) you’ve worked with things that are similar. You should be comfortable writing APIs and services that can scale. 
  • Experience working with large scale software projects with millions of users. 
  • You have an opinion about testing code and are motivated to level up your team’s testing capabilities.
  • 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.

Bonus Points

  • Experience with rules engine software—building and extending current ones, as well as writing custom rules that will run.
  • Experience working with Trust & Safety and other Customer Experience related co-workers.
  • Experience integrating with 3rd party services and APIs.

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!
