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.

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