WHY ROBLOX?

Roblox is ushering in the next generation of entertainment, allowing people to imagine, create, and play together in immersive, user-generated worlds. We’re the one and only fastest-growing entertainment platform that lets anyone teach themselves how to code, publish, and monetize any experience imaginable—across any device—reaching millions of players across the globe.

The impact that you can have at Roblox is powerful. We’re looking for someone who’s eager to take on a meaningful role in the success of Roblox on a massive scale. Someone who takes play seriously, but also isn’t afraid to have some fun either. Someone who’s ready to take Roblox—and their career—to the next level.

In 2018, we were honored to be recognized as a Certified Great Place to Work®. We’ve fostered a company culture that empowers people to do the most defining work of their career in an environment that’s made up of the most passionate, team-oriented, visionary, crazy-smart people you’ll ever meet. Join the Roblox team where play rules and the possibilities are endless.

Work with the most passionate, team-oriented, visionary, and crazy-smart people you’ll ever meet.

WHY AVATAR MARKETPLACE?

Roblox allows people to choose who they want to be in the metaverse. The Avatar Marketplace sits at the heart of that optionality. Whether you want to be a robot, a ninja, a tonk, or whether you want to wear a Potato on your head, Roblox UGC creators use their creativity to empower our users to decide who they want to be.

The data scientist here will work at the intersection of empowering creativity & sustaining a healthy marketplace. Finding opportunities to improve personalization & search, helping the UGC program scale to an unbounded number of creators, and finding the balance between marketplace health & user expression are all problems you will work on
