Senior Software Engineer - Compute API

at Roblox

San Mateo, United States



Every day, tens of millions of people come to Roblox to explore, create, play, learn, and connect with friends in 3D immersive digital experiences– all created by our global community of developers and creators. 

At Roblox, we’re building the tools and platform that empower our community to bring any experience that they can imagine to life. Our vision is to reimagine the way people come together, from anywhere in the world, and on any device. We’re on a mission to connect a billion people with optimism and civility, and looking for amazing talent to help us get there. 

A career at Roblox means you’ll be working to shape the future of human interaction, solving unique technical challenges at scale, and helping to create safer, more civil shared experiences for everyone.

This role will report to the manager of the Compute API team and you'll be responsible for developing the API that all Roblox engineers use to create and deploy infrastructure resources. Roblox operates a healthy number of clusters on-premise and in third-party clouds. We want users to be able to deploy without needing to know all of these pesky details. We also support stateful services such as CockroachDB and Redis, which I just think is neat.

You will:

  • Build our Roblox-wide control plane using Kubernetes primitives (and plenty of custom resources)
  • Work on the interface of the few hundred person infrastructure organization to the thousands of Roblox engineers
  • Write and review high-quality code and tests (largely Golang)
  • Work on a team that cares about inclusivity and shipping

You have:

  • Experience working on critical, large-scale distributed systems
  • An appreciation of observability and instrumentation and tooling to make your life easier
  • Prefer building systems automation over operational and repetitive tasks.
  • 4+ years of experience as a Software Engineer
