Do you have zero tolerance for manual operations? Are you proud of your dotfiles and constantly look for ways to improve yours and other’s workflow? Do you gravitate towards CI and take pride in shaving off minutes from build times? If any these ring true, then we would love to chat.

As Developer Productivity engineers we remove friction and focus on delivering compounding leverage across the entire software development lifecycle. Our mission is to seamlessly scale Discord to 1000 engineers and beyond while improving autonomy, velocity, and reliability.

  • Pioneering and improving our remote and container-based development environments using K8s, docker, and other open source projects.
  • Building our next-generation continuous integration and continuous delivery systems.
  • Automating all of the things!

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!
