All about Roblox

Every day, tens of millions of people from around the world come to Roblox to play, learn, work, and socialize in immersive digital experiences created by the community.

Our vision is to build a platform that enables shared experiences among billions of users. This is what’s known as the metaverse: a persistent space where anyone can do just about anything they can imagine, from anywhere in the world and on any device. The breadth of opportunities, and the evolving demands of this first-of-its-kind platform, ensure that your avenues for growth are always expanding and flexible.

Join us and you’ll usher in a new category of human interaction while solving exceptional challenges that you won’t find anywhere else.

We’re looking for someone who’s eager to take on a meaningful role and contribute to the meteoric success of Roblox. We want team members who believe in the power of play and take it seriously, but aren’t afraid to have fun while they’re doing it. Are you ready to take Roblox – and your career – to the next level?

All the things you’ll get to do

  • Lead a team of recruiters and own the recruiting function that supports our one of our Engineering organizations 
  • Partner with the VP of an Engineering organization to drive hiring strategy, workforce planning, and lead the candidate review for the entire organization
  • Mentor and lead a team of recruiters with the goal of bringing in the next generation of Roblox Talent
  • Partner with our sourcing organization to devise top-of-funnel strategy, sourcing drives, and other candidate generation initiatives
  • Prioritize building a diverse team at every step of the recruiting process, ensuring our top-of-funnel efforts and interviews provide candidates of all backgrounds with equal, unbiased consideration and opportunity
  • Champion an exceptional candidate experience, aligning closely with our Talent Operations Team to ensure all candidates leave our doors feeling inspired, supported, and informed.
  • Employ market intelligence and funnel metrics to inform your search strategy and build a trusting and credible relationship with your leaders, your team, and Roblox on a whole
  • Utilize recruiting metrics to motivate recruiters, educate engineering partners and build efficient and effective top-of-funnel strategy and overall recruiting success.

A little about you

  • You’ve been there and done this before! You have at least 7+ years of full-cycle recruiting experience in both a large and small company.  Growth excites you but doesn’t intimidate you since you’ve experienced it already.
  • You’ve led a high performing recruiting team for 2+ years and know lead while being approachable, empathetic, and nurturing 
  • You are more interested in winning championships than the MVP awards. You understand that at the end of the day it's all about Roblox, your candidates, and your team raising the trophy together.
  • You are always looking around the corner for what’s coming next.  You know what’s going on in the market and trends don’t surprise you, they excite you.
  • Fresh ideas and devising new ways to attack a problem is your morning coffee (or matcha, or red bull, or lemon water) . Doing things the way they have always been done bores you.  
  • You understand and embrace that at the end of the day, recruiting is about results.  More than that you like being the part of the team that delivers those results, consistently, thoughtfully, and relentlessly.
  • You are available to work full-time in San Mateo, CA. This position does not support working remotely.
