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.

You will work with the most passionate, collaborative, and caring people you’ll ever meet. The engineers at Roblox are working on the hardest problems in tech today -- distributed systems, real-time communication, 3D co-experience, massive data processing, social networking, rendering, physics, and more. As a Roblox engineer, you will have ownership and impact across one or more of these domains.

  • Collaborate with and mentor other engineering and product teams in building a UI component library.
  • Work with other teams on user-facing Trust & Safety systems such as abuse reports and moderation workflows for Roblox developers.
  • Execute the most impactful projects to keep players safe.

You Have:

  • 8+ years of hands-on experience building customer-facing user interfaces and experiences
  • Expert knowledge of modern JavaScript UI frameworks (React preferred)
