About the Job

Discord asks the world to Imagine a Place. However, our users don't just have to imagine - they get to build that place, too. Discord apps are the bridge that lets users move from imagining a place to experiencing it. The Apps and API team is looking for a Developer Advocate to help inspire, support, and educate our growing developer community.

As a Developer Advocate at Discord, you will build meaningful relationships with our community by engaging with their questions and ideas, by speaking at events and workshops, and by communicating their pain-points and feedback to the rest of the Apps and API team.

  • Become an expert resource for our developer community by continuously learning about our platform's capabilities and design patterns
  • Collaborate with our Engineering, Product, Marketing, and other cross-functional teams to improve our developer experiences and grow the app ecosystem
  • Identify opportunities to highlight unique apps and use-cases, develop new strategic partnerships, and invest in community-led projects
  • Work with the other leads on the Apps & API team to define how our team can best work with our developer community, including using insights you gather to directly influence our product roadmap
