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.

As a Site Reliability Software Engineer, you’ll develop tooling, libraries, services, and frameworks that provide resiliency and promote reliability.

You are

  • Experience: you have a BS degree (or equivalent professional experience) in Computer Science or related engineering field with at least 5 years of experience with at least 2 years in SRE/DevOps, Tools engineering, or Software Engineering.

  • Passion for systems: You have experience and good habits around building software and tools and getting them adopted. Your system's focus informs a view of code needing to be deeply reliable.

  • A Partner: You know that the best tools integrate broadly with the tooling ecosystem. You approach partners and processes with curiosity and seek to understand a problem deeply before you start coding.

  • A Coder: you have experience writing common programming languages (Python, Ruby, JavaScript, Go, Java…).

  • Self-organized: you're excited about getting in front of complex problems, organizing your work by any means possible; overcome emergent issues and contributing to long-running projects as a part of the team.

  • Problem Solver: you ask the right questions to solve issues within your expertise and you use data to test your theories.

  • Planner - You have experience in large project lifecycles. You have experienced working in sprints, breaking down complex tasks into milestones, and reporting status to keep project scheduling accurate.

You will

  • Create libraries that promote fault-tolerance and resilience– like retries, circuit breakers, and adaptive concurrency limits.

  • Build, automate and standardize process automation to create a “golden path” of tooling and platform support, that powers the fundamental Roblox ecosystem.

  • Create tooling that provides production guardrails, for example evaluating release candidate capacity with load testing tooling before deploying to production.

  • Create performance monitoring services and observability towards understanding capacity issues and platform degradations.

  • Create tooling that monitors production services and their changes, like generalized canarying services with alerting.

  • Design massively scalable systems on our global infrastructure and platform as we build the Metaverse!
