Growth engineers at Discord are product-driven thinkers who are focused on helping new users create meaningful relationships with each other and the tens of millions of others who use our app every day. Our small, nimble growth team is passionate about developing well-designed, scalable software to create conversations, communities, and a place for belonging to our millions of users - while maintaining good work/life balance. We believe that a clean, delightful, interface is important to achieving the best user experience.
As growth engineers we are motivated to move our business forward by building a better product. We're a thoughtful group where compassion for our users is our guiding principle. We're a small team (less than 5 engineers) trying to achieve a lot, which means we have real ownership over our work.

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), Android (Kotlin, RxJava), or iOS (React Native, Objective-C, Swift). We don't expect everyone to be an expert in all of these, and everyone has their specialties, but the more platforms you're comfortable with (or want to learn!), the faster we can move.
