Every day, tens of millions of people come to Roblox to explore, create, play, learn, and connect with friends in 3D immersive digital experiences– all created by our global community of developers and creators.

At Roblox, we’re building the tools and platform that empower our community to bring any experience that they can imagine to life. Our vision is to reimagine the way people come together, from anywhere in the world, and on any device. We’re on a mission to connect a billion people with optimism and civility, and looking for amazing talent to help us get there.

A career at Roblox means you’ll be working to shape the future of human interaction, solving unique technical challenges at scale, and helping to create safer, more civil shared experiences for everyone.

As a Principal Software Engineer on the Roblox Programmability team, you will work with us on software ecosystem development of the embedded scripting languages in the Roblox engine while reporting to the Engineering Director. Our Programmability team is at the heart of developing the software ecosystem for embedded scripting languages within the Roblox engine. To enable developers on the Roblox platform to create tomorrow's top games, they require more than a functional scripting environment—they need sophisticated programming interfaces, a robust set of script libraries, comprehensive development tools, and an ultra-fast, multithreaded runtime. Join our team to guide the evolution of a new suite of programming interfaces and advanced tooling features that millions of developers will use daily. As a member of our Game Engine Programmability team, you will play a pivotal role in this process.
