What you'll be doing
- You will report to our growing Product Design team within the Engineering, Product, Analytics and Design (EPAD) organization.

- Measure the success of your design decisions via experimentation with the help of Data Analysts and Product Managers.
- Mix your visual, UX, and interaction design skills to design valuable features for our users.

- Foster a culture of design
What you should have
- Minimum of 3 years experience designing and shipping a web/app product for a variety of devices and platforms

- A high level of craft
- Experience with Figma or Sketch
- Experience or willingness to mentor other designers
- Experience building design systems
- Interface animation know-how

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.
In a world of polarization, social curation, and loneliness, Discord is working toward an inclusive world where no one feels like an outsider. We believe in the value of genuine human connection, which can so easily be lost online. So we’re building a space where everyone can find belonging from the inside out. If this strikes a chord with you, come build belonging with us!
