The Data Science & Analytics organization's mission is to increase our speed, frequency, and acumen of our business decisions and to empower and scale product innovations. We cover a wide area of the data spectrum, including analytical data engineering, product analytics, experimentation, causal inference, statistical modeling, economics, and machine learning. Aligned and partnering with product groups, we use this vast tool belt to discover new opportunities and unmet use cases, influence and shape the product roadmap and prioritization, build data products and measure the impact / incrementality on our community of players, developers, and advertisers.


Economy Science leads the understanding, at scale, cross-Roblox economic behaviors to inform product roadmaps and company strategy. The team is accountable for understanding and advising the engagement-monetization tradeoffs, and interactions among Robux pricing, advertising products and offers, and in-experience economies. As a renewed strategic area, work will be innovative and impactful. Scientific rigor will be critical in success as we organize our data model, design principled measurement systems, and architect the future of incrementality measurement of ecosystem interactions and behavioral drivers.
