Every day, tens of millions of people from around the world come to Roblox to play, learn, work, and socialize in immersive digital experiences created by the community. Our vision is to build a platform that enables shared experiences among billions of users. This is what’s known as the metaverse: a persistent space where anyone can do just about anything they can imagine, from anywhere in the world and on any device. Join us and you’ll usher in a new category of human interaction while solving exceptional challenges that you won’t find anywhere else.

With millions of users and creators coming together each day, Roblox has become an immersive home for like minded groups of people to gather and build shared experiences. The Communities team's mission is to make it easy to create and join vibrant communities on Roblox. Communities make up the space of shared interaction in the metaverse, through connected communication, creation, and cooperative experience. The Communities team is focused on helping users and creators find each other, organize, collaborate, build, recruit, and compete with one another. Much like communities in the "real world" require tools and means for resources to unite around a shared goal, metaverse communities need a feature-rich platform to create these shared spaces, build rich assets, and engage in shared experiences. The Communities team provides the space for groups to belong, thrive, produce, and have fun.

As the Director of Product for Roblox Communities, you will create and lead the product strategy, roadmap, and execution on our Communities vision. You'll be charged with deeply understanding our users and creators, aligning the broader organization around our user value proposition, and driving our UX, technology, and growth goals. In short, you will lead the Communities vision for the team and build a world class metaverse communication platform used by millions. You'll do this with a full set of partners across Data Science, Engineering, Design, User Research, Developer Relations and more. The team, which joined Roblox last year as part of the acquisition, is an integrated part of Roblox and is set up to build this grand vision for our community.
