We’re building the world’s largest social platform for play. 

At Roblox, we’re committed to pushing the boundaries of user-generated play. We aspire to build a global brand that empowers kids of all ages to imagine, create, and play together in immersive 3D worlds across all modern smartphones, tablets, desktops, Xbox One, Oculus Rift, and other popular VR platforms. We’re always looking for smart, talented, and creative people to join our team of over 200 engineers, artists, and visionaries.

Integrated matchmaking, persistence, and billing support provide developers rich functionality for building great games and experiences. The Roblox.com website ties this ecosystem together with search and discovery, social networking, and a massive catalog of user-made content.
