We’re building a cloud for the Metaverse here at Roblox. Our engineers use this cloud to build Roblox itself. Like a public cloud, our private cloud provides Database services to engineers at Roblox. What sets our cloud apart from others, is that the Databases cater to the unique needs of the Metaverse. As the Director of Product - Databases, you’ll oversee the strategy and execution of our private cloud database product portfolio.

Our database team provides a variety of data management products for use by our internal engineering teams. This includes products for transaction processing, analytics, caching, queueing, object storage, stream processing, vectors, and a variety of other use cases. While the technologies are familiar, we have unique challenges at Roblox. We operate at a massive scale, supporting more than 70 million daily active users and growing rapidly. Data and its management represent a substantial financial investment for roblox making decisions about how they work deeply impactful to our business. And the metaverse is distributed; we operate across dozens of datacenter locations (across on-prem and cloud) adding a layer of complexity to every storage system.
