We built Discord to bring gamers together

We’re looking for a Protector of the Realm whose sworn duty is to defend our users from all manner of unwanted content and behavior. As a Trust and Safety Analyst, you’ll help write and enforce our guidelines, remove unwanted content from Discord, and mitigate bad experiences for our users. You’ll hear opposing views and make tough calls in intense situations, and you’ll also have to explain your decisions to the team, our users, and third parties in clear and understandable terms. You’ll work with others to look into the future of Discord and stop potential issues before they become a threat.

What you'll be doing

  • Review and evaluate content for compliance with our Community Guidelines.
  • Analyze data, propose and implement programmatic rules to handle abuse at scale.

  • Think both quantitatively and qualitatively and create reports to improve, optimize, and innovate.
  • Analyze new and potential features and propose plans to help reduce or remove abuse before it happens.
  • Participate in a on-call rotation for urgent emergency reports from law enforcement.

What you should have

  • Strong problem solving, troubleshooting, and investigative skills: we believe in getting to the root of the matter instead of just addressing symptoms.
  • Familiarity with technical systems: you don’t need to be a software developer, but you should be able to understand networking and systems.
  • Incredible empathy and patience: we want our users to know that they’ve been heard.
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and make important decisions under pressure.
  • A passion for gaming and online safety.
  • Willingness to work during non-typical or non-core hours.

Discord's free voice and text chat is about making it easier for you spend time with the people you care about, create these memories, and land a headshot or two.

Discord currently has 45 million registered users with over 9 million Daily Active Users. The service sees 200 million messages posted a day, over 4 million peak concurrent players and a staggering 16 petabytes of voice chat data going through its servers every month.
