Work with the most passionate, team-oriented, visionary, and crazy-smart people you’ll ever meet. The engineers at Roblox are working on the hardest problems in tech today -- distributed systems, real-time communication, 3D co-experience, massive data processing, social networking, rendering, physics, and more. As a Roblox engineer, you will have real ownership and impact across one or more of these domains.
As a Senior Rendering Engineer, you will solve difficult challenges while continuing to build a high-speed, completely dynamic environment connected to all devices. You will come up with ideas for graphics effects and features leveraged by our 400K strong developer community to create stunning content. All of this is based on an in-house rendering engine built from the ground up, supporting DirectX 9/11, OpenGL, GNM, Metal, and Vulkan GAPI’s. We have a powerful need for top-notch, low-level and high-level graphics work. The games on the ROBLOX platform are completely dynamic, anything can change at any time, and our rendering engine has to excel in this dynamic environment. This is where you come into play!
