About the team


The Roku Smart Home product team is part of the Devices organization at Roku which is responsible for products and partnerships that lead to continued account acquisition. We are looking to simplify smart home and replicate our success with OTT streaming in this growth area. Our business is fast paced, requiring the ability to work autonomously with minimal supervision in an ever-changing environment. The right mix of organizational and communication skills will be the key to success. Attention to detail and a proven ability to manage priorities are also essential.

 

About the role 

As a Senior Product Manager of Experience in the Roku Smart Home team, you will define features and services for new products and experiences on all surfaces, primarily in Roku Smart Home mobile apps and on Roku TV. You will develop and present strategy, product roadmap, and lead execution of the roadmap. You will work closely with design, engineering, data science/analytics and business teams to bring core features to life. You will bring clarity of thought and ensure that resources and teams are always working on the most important, high impact areas. We are highly data driven and make decisions based on experimentation and data. You will be quick at interpreting results from experiments and make decisions on future iterations. We recognize that it is equally important to have strong product intuition that informs decision making. We are looking for product leaders that demonstrate strong user empathy and product instincts. We are committed to creating diverse teams, and believe that diversity in backgrounds and perspectives lead to best outcomes for our teams and our consumers.
 

Above all, you will be deeply embedded with a tight team of hard working, fun, and talented professionals all working to deliver the simplest, most accessible, and best smart home experience on the planet. Sound exciting? Great! We thought so too.

The Roku Culture

Roku is a great place for people who want to work in a fast-paced environment where everyone is focused on the company's success rather than their own. We try to surround ourselves with people who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. We appreciate a sense of humor. We believe a fewer number of very talented folks can do more for less cost than a larger number of less talented teams. We’re independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you'll be part of a company that's changing how the world watches TV. 

We have a unique culture that we are proud of. We think of ourselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. We come up with the solution, but the solution isn't real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action gives us a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served us well since 2002.
