Job Description


Roblox is ushering in the next generation of entertainment, allowing people to imagine, create, and play together in immersive, user-generated worlds. We're the one and only fastest-growing entertainment platform that lets anyone teach themselves how to code, publish, and monetize any experience imaginable-across any device-reaching millions of players across the globe.

The impact that you can have at Roblox is powerful. We're looking for someone who's eager to take on a meaningful role in the success of Roblox on a massive scale. Someone who takes play seriously, but also isn't afraid to have some fun either. Someone who's ready to take Roblox-and their career-to the next level.

In 2018, we were honored to be recognized as a Certified Great Place to Work®. We've fostered a company culture that empowers people to do the most defining work of their career in an environment that's made up of the most passionate, team-oriented, visionary, crazy-smart people you'll ever meet. Join the Roblox team where play rules and the possibilities are endless.

Work with the most passionate, team-oriented, visionary, and crazy-smart 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 real ownership and impact across one or more of these domains.

As a Senior Backend Web Engineer on the Catalog team, you'll play a critical role in helping us scale our software stack at a time of incredible growth for our business. On the Social team, your mission will be to guarantee a fun, engaging, and safe social experience for players of all ages. Roblox is the largest social platform for creating, sharing and interacting with 3D content. You will join a team of engineers developing innovative features that allow our members to play, chat and build together, see their friends' activity across the platform, and stay up-to-date on their favorite content.

At Roblox, you'll have boundless opportunities to shape the future of the largest social platform for play and demonstrate your passion for delivering awesome solutions to a global audience. If you have what it takes to expand a game platform that can sustain over a million concurrent players at peak times and you take play as seriously as we do, you'll fit right into our highly-skilled and ever-expanding engineering team.

You Are:

* Experienced: you have a Bachelor's degree (or equivalent professional experience) in Computer Science or a related engineering field and at least six years of hands-on experience
* Interested in powering social networks: you are excited about building infrastructure to support chat and social networking features at scale by handling tens of millions of requests per second
* A solid programmer: you are skilled in at least one compiled language, like C#, Java, C++, etc.
* Well rounded software engineer: you have working experience dealing with relational databases, distributed systems, software design patterns and large-scale applications
* Adaptable: you tackle new challenges head-on, understanding and solving problems using emerging technologies
* Up-to-speed on all things Cloud: it is an added bonus if you have working experience with public cloud solutions such as AWS, GCP, or Azure

You Will:

* Develop and deliver groundbreaking social solutions that provide an awesome experience for our community around the world while satisfying the large scale and real-time requirements of the Imagination Platform
* Identify and solve critical problems and prevent them from reoccurring via root cause analysis and automation
* Create, influence, and improve the development platform, infrastructure, standards, and methods to ensure our goals of scalability and high availability

You'll Love:

* Excellent medical, dental, and vision coverage
* A rewarding 401k program
* Flexible vacation policy
* Free catered lunches five times a week and several fully stocked kitchens with unlimited snacks
* Onsite fitness center and fitness program credit
