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.

With around 2000 employees and 25 researchers, we rely on constant innovation to support a disproportionately large amount of content and players. This also means that we are a large enough company to achieve our vision and a great work environment, but still small enough that each scientist can have tremendous impact on the product, player community, and culture.

This is an opportunity to build the next generation of social, 3D, and distributed computing interfaces in a world-class fundamental research lab. Roblox presents a tremendous international laboratory for experiments with real users, data, client devices, and servers at scale. We're looking for experts in the following technical areas:

Research scientists report to VP of Research and Chief Scientist, Morgan McGuire, and are encouraged to engage with local universities. E.G. participating in university reading and research groups, delivering guest lectures or (occasional) full courses, or in holding an academic title. In all, they may spend up to 10% of their time in approved, compensated academic appointments.
