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.

InfoSec has critical responsibilities at Roblox: Engineering and designing secure systems from inception to operationalization; establishing policies and processes that will be followed; training peer engineering teams in secure methods; making security risks visible and actionable company-wide. The Security Software Engineer role will have a critical job in driving consistency and excellence in our automation. You’ll work closely with InfoSec leads and partner teams on identifying automation opportunities and actioning them. You will innovate the way we secure our infrastructure by designing, operating and building new security controls, or extending existing ones. Finally, you’ll have an opportunity to learn and mentor with experts across a wide range of InfoSec sub-disciplines, such as public key infrastructure, incident response, threats and vulnerability management, DevSecOps tooling, threat modeling, and bug hunting.

As an early InfoSec Engineer, you will have the opportunity to be an innovator and foundational member on the InfoSec team at Roblox.  We are looking for smart people who work well with others who want to apply their passion for protecting communities to grow a leading-edge security program.  Come join us in building the best trusted all-ages gaming and exchange platform.

  • Experienced in scripting.  You are comfortable building security tools and managing infrastructure using a variety of tools.  Everything from flinging packets across the network with Python/Scapy to writing Nmap NSE scripts, to building glue code for automatic report generation.
