We are democratizing the gaming world by inspiring people to play, socialize, create, and engage on one platform - across all devices - doing what they love.

Join the Roblox team where play rules and the possibilities are endless - literally.

Roblox is seeking a Senior Legal Counsel, with 8 - 12 years of experience.  Local candidates only.

You will love this job. We are a small legal department doing really exciting (and intellectually stimulating) legal work around the world.

We need someone who is intelligent, gets things done, and works hard.

Roblox is the largest social platform for play, with over 64 million active players coming each month to imagine, create, and play together in immersive 3D worlds.

You Are:

  • Intelligent, Good Communicator, Solution-Oriented, Educated and Qualified…and Down to Earth:  You are down to earth, a person who rolls up your sleeves, works well with others, and gets things done. You have the ability to take complex situations, boil them down to their essence (both from a business and legal point of view), and figure out how to move the business forward (while still protecting the company).  You have a J.D. from a top tier law school and are a state bar member in good standing.
  • Self-Organized, Gets Stuff Done, Works Hard, Inspires Others and Respects the Roblox Community: The great thing is that we all live these values here at Roblox. If you have them, you will do well here.
  • A Workhorse: You will be treated very well. But, you will be expected to get a lot of work done. This job is not easy. It will be hard work. But, it will be intellectually stimulating and rewarding.

Someone who goes above and beyond:

  • Experienced: 8-12 years of experience with a multinational company or law firm and have helped a company (from a legal point of view) through rapid domestic and international growth. Experience in both startups and bigger companies (public or private) is a plus.
  • Contracts:  You have done plenty of contract work.  We are not looking for people with litigation backgrounds.
  • Relevant Work Experience: We are all partners making this business succeed. It would be great if your previous work included companies in related spaces such as video games, social networking, ecommerce, technology platforms and any companies that rely heavily on user generated content.
  • A Seasoned Lawyer: COPPA, Privacy/PII, Ecommerce, Consumer Protection, Data Protection, Intellectual Property (trademarks, copyrights, patents) protection and enforcement, FinTech/payments/virtual currency, general corporate, governmental compliance, and industry best practices. EU related privacy and other legal work is a plus. You are seasoned at negotiating, structuring and drafting contracts, which both protect the company and get the deal done.

You Will:

  • Structure, negotiate and draft agreements for sales, marketing, licensing, development and confidentiality, in support of all Roblox products and teams. Review and advise on non-standard terms and conditions.
  • Draft company policies, including Roblox’s consumer-facing privacy policy and terms and conditions.
  • Work on general commercial matters for Roblox, both independently and with other members of the Legal department.
  • Become a subject matter expert in the following areas: Privacy and Data Protection, including COPPA, GDPR and Privacy Shield; Ecommerce, including FinTech, payments and virtual currency; Consumer Protection; and Intellectual Property protection and enforcement.
  • Deliver timely, pragmatic, and business-focused legal counsel to our clients and other internal stakeholders, even in ambiguous situations.
  • Work closely with Legal department colleagues, as well as with business leaders throughout the company, to provide guidance on business and legal risks, company policies, and mitigation strategies.
  • Build and drive development of scalable tools, standard form agreements, and legal processes that scale globally.

You'll Love:

  • Working on unique projects that are seen - and enjoyed - by millions of active Roblox users every day
  • Excellent medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • A rewarding 401k program
  • Flexible vacation policy
  • Free catered lunches five times a week and several fully stocked kitchens with unlimited snacks (Nom nom nom.)
  • Onsite fitness center and fitness program credit
  • Annual CalTrain Go Pass
  • A super-cool Roblox Admin badge for your avatar
  • Rock star status with our community (No autographs, please.)
