Roblox is built on three principles. We love and respect the community, we take play seriously, and above all, we strive to power the imaginations of people around the world.

Building the world’s largest social platform for play takes a lot of work. It requires a team of clever minds, a strong desire to create world-class experiences, and—as our Chief Product Officer, Keith Lucas, reminds us—the passion to get stuff done. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to cut loose and have a little fun occasionally, as evidenced by our recent trip to Disneyland. It’s not every day you get to romp around Main Street with your friends or take epic photos on Splash Mountain together. Nor is it every day you get to work with an awesome team of creative, self-organizing individuals who are driven to develop some of the coolest and most innovative technology around. But here at Roblox? We dare to make this a reality.

The Roblox team recently took a plane down to Anaheim and spent a couple of days together at the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland, to celebrate hitting one million concurrent players!

Roblox is committed to pushing the boundaries of user-generated play. As we continue to grow in size and influence, we have dedicated ourselves to evolve our culture based on five actionable company values:

  1. Inspire Others
  2. Work Hard
  3. Self-Organize
  4. Respect the Community
  5. Get Stuff Done

These core values represent our shared beliefs and guide every aspect of our mission to help power the imaginations of people around the world. Our CEO, David Baszucki, personally meets and gets to know every person who’s been hired, even though our team has grown over 60 percent since the past year. As a company, it’s crucial to the whole team that every person aligns with and exemplifies these five values.

Inspire Others

All creative ideas are welcomed from anyone within the company. Oftentimes, sharing some thoughts about a fantastic idea leads to new and exciting projects across different teams and platforms. Every week, the entire company gets together to present their latest and greatest projects, ask questions, and celebrate each other’s accomplishments.  

Work Hard

There’s never a dull moment here at Roblox. Everyone is incredibly passionate about their work, and each person contributes a great deal to the company.   

Self-Organize

We make our own luck. Everyone here is entrusted with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed, and then they’re given the freedom to proactively find creative solutions to complex problems.

Respect the Community

With great power comes great responsibility. We have more than 48 million monthly active players across nearly every device imaginable. We understand how much our platform and company means to every player. That’s why we’re committed to making sure they have the best experience whenever they’re creating, building, or playing together.

Get Stuff Done

Our team works hard to produce tangible results quickly and efficiently. We love seeing our projects come to life, and we make it our mission to continually iterate.   

Putting these core values into action allows us to foster an awesome culture where your talents will be celebrated, your ideas valued, and your projects thought-provoking and meaningful. We invite you to learn more about Roblox and see what makes our team and culture so special. We’re always looking for smart, talented, and creative people to join our team of over 200 engineers, artists, and visionaries.
