Fire in the Valley Rekindled

Builderman and I hit the Stanford startup job fair on Thursday, looking to recruit a few good software developers for the Roblox team. The fire in Silicon Valley is roaring again and Computer Science majors can’t walk down the street without being offered a job. The Colossus of Mountainview hoovers them up, hiring about 50 a week. However, BM and I were undaunted. Enticing upcoming grads into joining a project as awesome as Roblox – that should be a pretty easy sell.

After spending the entire day on campus talking to students, we found a couple of potential full-time candidates. We also decided that we will probably hire a couple of summer interns to work on cool little projects for us. Everyone should be excited about getting more people to work on Roblox – every new person we find will increase the number of features and fixes we cram into each new release.

We’ve had our job listings posted on for about a month now, secretly hidden on the front page where only the most proactive job seekers might find them. People interested in jobs or internships at Roblox should email their resume to
