Roblox, Senior Backend Web Engineer - Platform Framework, San Mateo, CA


Roblox’s Imagination Platform is ushering in the next generation of entertainment, enabling kids of all ages to imagine, create, and play together in immersive 3D worlds. Powered by a global community of millions of developers and creators, Roblox allows anyone to build, publish, and monetize any experience imaginable. 

comScore ranks Roblox as one of the top online entertainment platforms for audiences under the age of 18 based on average monthly visits and time spent. In addition, Roblox has been named one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies on the Inc. 5000 for the past two consecutive years.

Work with the most passionate, team-oriented, visionary, 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.

Roblox is all in on going global, and as a member of the Platform Framework Team, you have the unique chance to help build the core technologies that will be the foundation of the next generation of a public 'Infrastructure-as-a-service' platform called Roblox Cloud Services.

This is much more than just a typical engineering position. This is an opportunity for you to challenge your engineering talents by building something new and important, sharing expertise, adopting innovations contributed by other engineering teams, and defining standards and evangelizing them across internal teams and the broader Roblox developer community.

You will be joining a formidable team that owns multiple widely used core technologies, including our microservices framework, code generation, code analysis tools and more.

  • A solid programmer: you are skilled in a multitude of programming and scripting languages, such as C#, Java, C++ and Ruby
  • Driven: to identify optimal solutions and evangelize them with other engineering groups

  • Up-to-speed on all things Cloud is a bonus: you have working experience with public cloud solutions such as AWS, GCP, or Azure
