We’re looking for a UX Writer to embed within our Growth product engineering organization to build experiences that engage our users and achieve our mission of creating belonging.

As a UX writer focused on growth you will write and refine content from hierarchy to hyphens for a diverse global audience. You will absorb research findings, test our language, advocate for users—all while incorporating the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) irreverence of our brand.

If you’re interested in joining a passionate team of designers and writers to work on features that will be used by millions of people across the world, come help us do that.

  • Embed in a Growth squad with product designers, engineers, product managers, data scientists, and other cross-functional partners to develop features from concept to launch and beyond
  • Audit areas of our product, contribute to our style guide, and mature the collective writing practice of Product Design; at least one third of your time will be devoted to this practice
  • Be an educator, consultant, and research librarian and help others adopt and use Discord's voice and tone during weekly office hours
  • Support a cross-functional group of writers driving improvements to our internal content management processes

What you should have

  • 3+ years experience shipping content-heavy projects across a variety of devices and platforms
  • 1+ years specializing in the field of UX writing / content strategy / content design Portfolio (and password, if applicable) of writing samples such as: style and formatting guidelines; specimens of UI text and microcopy, e.g. form labels, placeholders, toasts, error messages, and push notifications; direct or transactional emails; user stories, scenarios, flows, or journeys; user support or technical feature documentation
  • Solid editing and proofreading skills (if the AP Stylebook isn't on your shelf already) and a writing style that can match a company's brand voice
  • Experience with Figma or other prototyping tool
  • Passion for mentoring (and being mentored by) your peers Commitment to diversity, inclusion, and belonging

Bonus Points

  • Experience running editorial processes, user interviews, or A/B tests
  • Familiar with curriculum development, learning design, library science, taxonomy, or other specialized content practice
  • Comfortable with, or curious about, editing frontend code
  • Ride or die for the Oxford comma

About Us

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.

We’re working toward an inclusive world where no one feels like an outsider, where genuine human connection is a click, text chat, or voice call away. A place where everyone can find belonging. Challenging? Heck yes. Rewarding? Double heck yes. It’s a mission that gives us the chance to positively impact millions of people all over the world. So if this strikes a chord with you, come build belonging with us!
