Community Moderation Program Manager

Discord, San Francisco

We built Discord to bring gamers together

At Discord we recognize that our moderators are the foundations of any good community. Moderators don't just keep the peace—without them, the servers that feel like home to so many of us just wouldn't be the same. We believe that by empowering these community leaders with the resources to succeed, we won't have to just imagine a place- we can help make it a reality.

You'll help lead volunteer moderator teams across a wide variety of community projects and answer user questions related to our education and community initiatives.

About Discord

About us Discord is the all-in-one voice and text chat app designed specifically for gamers. It's free, secure, and works on both desktop and phone. Our mission is to bring gaming communities together. 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. Two hundred seventy million PC gamers use chat apps to communicate while playing online games. As gamers, we got fed up with many of these chat tools and decided to fix the problem ourselves. As a result, we've built the best all-in-one voice and text chat app for gamers. Fortunately, a lot of people love it. 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. Founded by the team behind OpenFeint - a networking platform that united mobile games with achievements and social functionality - Discord has raised over $30M from top VCs like Greylock, Benchmark, Accel, and Tencent.
