Every day, tens of millions of people from around the world come to Roblox to play, learn, work, and socialize in immersive digital experiences created by the community.

Our vision is to build a platform that enables shared experiences among billions of users. This is what’s known as the metaverse: a persistent space where anyone can do just about anything they can imagine, from anywhere in the world and on any device. The breadth of opportunities, and the evolving demands of this first-of-its-kind platform, ensure that your avenues for growth are always expanding and flexible.

Join us and you’ll usher in a new category of human interaction while solving exceptional challenges that you won’t find anywhere else.

Roblox rendering team is responsible for the visual expression of the Roblox metaverse, from the smallest particle to the largest terrain.  Join some of the best Graphics Engineers in the world supporting the largest immersive 3D streaming environment deployed across console, desktop, mobile, and VR.  Three key principles define Rendering at Roblox and separate us from other rendering teams:

  • Scalability: Roblox provides a platform that guarantees to the creators that their experiences will always and automatically run on different devices, with cross-platform play and minimal load times.
  • Compatibility: Roblox experiences and assets made in the past, are still working today. Rendering has to have an eye to the past, and an eye to the future…
  • Community: Roblox experiences are made by creators of all experience levels, from professionals who earn their living on the platform to kids who are learning to program using Roblox!
