Roblox – Why Work With Us?


Roblox is bringing the world together through play.

In 2006, Roblox was founded with a mission to power the imaginations of millions of people around the world. Today, Roblox is the leading global platform for shared digital experiences - and the only of its kind to empower a global community of over 100M monthly users to play, imagine and create together. 

At Roblox, we have embraced the hardest engineering and product challenges to bring people together through play. And we have only just begun. The Roblox platform rests on a rich technology stack that is as inspiring as our players and creators.

Roblox takes play seriously. Imagine what we can build together.


Roblox CEO Named "Best for Diversity"

Comparably, one of the fastest growing compensation, culture, and career monitoring sites in the U.S., announced their selection of David Baszucki, CEO and Founder, as one of the Best CEOs for Diversity 2019 (Small & Medium Size Companies).  


The Product:

Roblox’s user and developer community continues to grow rapidly as the company builds innovative new tools and platform functionality.  As an example, Roblox Studio IDE allows powerful and intuitive creation, published with a single click to the cloud, and instantly playable with your friends across PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Xbox One, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. Integrated matchmaking, persistence, and billing support provide developers rich functionality for building great games and experiences.

The Technology:

  • The Reality Engine: Our Reality Engine is the core of the Roblox virtual experience. It is a proprietary, high-performance, cross-platform, real-time simulation engine that dynamically scales fidelity to match device capabilities. The overall engine runs at 60 frames per second and can adaptively scale from an iPhone 4S to the latest gaming PC. 
  • Universal Game Client: The Roblox Reality Engine is packaged into our Universal Game Client, a single code base that can be built for all the platforms we serve, from iOS and Android, to Mac, PC, Xbox One, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. 
  • Real-Time Social Platform: Roblox is and always has been a social experience. At peak times, we process over 3.5 million requests per second across all backend services on the Roblox platform. Our vision is a single, global community, playing together and communicating with each other in real time, regardless of geographical and language boundaries.
  • Roblox Compute Cloud: The Roblox Distributed Compute Cloud is a collection of servers that host virtual experiences. At its peak, Roblox has hosted over 1.9 million concurrent users on our platform. Our matchmaking system finds the best game instance for each player, optimizing across friends in-game, geo‑location, server performance, and language, among other factors.
  • Team Development Infrastructure: We succeed when our developers succeed. We have a growing suite of tools to support an incredibly talented global community of over two million  creators who continue to push the boundaries of game design.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Roblox.

    Interview

    Very bad experience, totally a waste of applicants' time. Virtual onsite interview. Four rounds in total, only two of them are coding questions and the other two are all behavioral. The coding questions are super easy. Did not have the opportunity to show my abilities. Got reject few days later said they would like to move forward with better candidate. I think they did not want me in the very beginning.
