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.

The Notifications Team at Roblox is currently building the next generation notifications platform to enable our teams and developers to easily build respectful and relevant notification experiences for our users. These notifications include Push, In-App/In-Experience, Messages, Email, and SMS - basically any way a user is contacted both on-platform and off-platform. The mission of our team is to connect the right user, to the right content, at the right time. Whether it's a new update from a user's favorite experience, or a friend invitation to co-play, we make sure that the notifications that are being delivered are what the user wants to see, and when they should be receiving it.

As the Senior Backend Software Engineer on the Notifications platform team, you will lead the backend development for our Notifications Platform, building functionality to be able to scale to our millions of users through our delivery channels, ensuring that our platform is scalable and providing the best possible user experience. We are currently building what we call our Core Pipeline, making sure that we can deliver notifications of all types to our users. Soon we'll be adding more functionality such as scheduling and ranking to make sure that the right users are getting the right notifications!

If you are an engineer who is passionate about helping us build our notifications platform with impact throughout the company, come join us on the Notifications team. This role reports to the Engineering Manager on the Notifications Team.
