WHY BRAND PARTNERSHIPS?
Roblox is working with some of the biggest brands and musicians to put on experiences our users love. Lil Nas X, the Wonder Woman team, and the Stranger Things team are all partners who have worked with us in the past and put together incredible experiences for our users.
As we continue to work with partners and put on events, the team is looking to begin understanding these experiences’ value to our players as well as to our partners. You will help the team understand the incrementality of these events on our core metrics, learn which types of events our users love the most, and find out who our users would love to see next. You will also help our partners understand the value they’re getting from investing in Roblox and develop a framework for how Roblox engagement relates to outcomes our partners are excited for.
