The Data Science & Analytics organization's mission is to increase our speed, frequency, and acumen of our business decisions and to empower and scale product innovations. We cover a wide area of the data spectrum, including analytical data engineering, product analytics, experimentation, causal inference, statistical modeling, economics, and machine learning. Aligned and partnering with product groups, we use this vast tool belt to discover new opportunities and unmet use cases, influence and shape the product roadmap and prioritization, build data products and measure the impact / incrementality on our community of players, developers, and advertisers.


Roblox is innovating payment solutions and subscription offerings for our community and developers. We are early in the journey to achieve payment scale, achieve greater efficiency, and drive product-market fit for developer subscriptions and platform-wide subscriptions. As a renewed strategic area, work will be innovative and impactful. Scientific rigor will be critical in success as we organize our data model, design principled measurement systems, and architect the future of incrementality measurement in payments and subscription impact, to enable our developer and user communities.

You will be a domain leader within the broader Economy DSA team, collaborating with engineers and product managers to develop our purchasing offerings and payment systems to advance business objectives. Work will include experimental design and analysis, ad hoc analyses, data pipelining, and demand / causal modeling. We are early in this multi- year journey, and seek a dedicated and passionate scientist to help design this vision and foster the innovation to achieve it. You will report directly to the Data Science Leader overseeing our Economy DSA team.
