I have been working at Roblox full-time (Less than a year)
The company already has amazing product-market fit and a killer growth trajectory, although since it's seen as a "kids product", it's very overlooked by tech media. Add to that, the CEO is the boldest thinker I have encountered in 10+ years in tech. He invests the long-term right thing to do over the short-term gimmick every single time, and it has paid off with sustained growth and remarkable technology. Add to that, since it's a "kids product" a lot of the people who work here are parents, which gives the whole place a very mature and work/life friendly vibe. I almost didn't work here because I worried it wasn't "A-list", but I'm very glad I took the offer. I wish I could give 2 thumbs up for the 6-month business outlook. Talent here & comp are just as good as better-known companies, and honestly the upside here is better than most.
It's a fast-growing startup, which means that everyone has to get their hands dirty, and process/org/priorities can change pretty quickly (like, overnight). It's a constant learning curve, and requires a certain amount of go-with-the-flow attitude. Some of the senior leaders are still growing into their level of responsibility.
Advice to Management
Keep focusing on the long-term and doing what's right for customers and employees.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Roblox (San Mateo, CA) in February 2018.
Probably one of the best interviewing experiences I've had! Everything leading up to the onsite was professional, efficient, and clear. Both the recruiter and coordinator helped arrange the next phase and provided answers to all my questions. The first thing that happened onsite was a warm greeting from the office manager, who was incredibly welcoming and knowledgable about all the awesome company accolades.
The interviewing panel was thoughtfully assembled to give me insight into a diverse set of teams, personalities, and skillsets. Interviewers provided guidance through exercises and were sure to explore my skills thoroughly. Each 1:1 was loosely structured, allowing discussions to feel relaxed and collaborative.
I left my onsite feeling like the objective of the interviews were not only to assess what I could contribute to the company, but also how Roblox could help develop me in my career. It really seems like Roblox aims to make the entire process a positive experience that provides an accurate peek into the work environment there.
