Work with the most passionate, team-oriented, visionary, and crazy-smart people you’ll ever meet.

Experience with mobile and/or console gameplay development is especially interesting. We are an Agile team and look for you to be comfortable with the core concepts of Scrum or Kanban project process.

You Are:

  • Amazing at systems-level C++ programming (5+ years of exp) - pointers, templates, and raw blocks of memory are your tools for writing high-performance code
  • Experienced or knowledgeable in scripting - we've embedded our game engine with Lua, so you're understanding in that or another scripting language will be leveraged
  • Self-sufficient - you take pride in breaking down high-level tasks and driving them to completion
  • User-oriented - you don’t let go of a task or feature until it’s in the hands of end-users and working exactly the way it should
  • Analytical - you’re comfortable using metrics and logging to analyze problems, find patterns, and develop solutions
  • Multi-platform - you jump with ease between Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, iOS, XBox…

You Will:

  • Use the Roblox game engine to build world-class vertical applications for multiple platforms (mobile, tablet, PC, console and VR)
  • Implement developer facing features and functionality
  • Improve existing codebase
  • Analyze bug and crash reports, fix problems, and optimize performance
  • Collaborate with numerous internal teams to help build the world's best user generated gaming platform
