Roku is the #1 TV streaming platform in the U.S., and we’ve set our sights on powering every television in the world. Roku pioneered streaming to the TV. Our mission is to be the TV streaming platform that connects the entire TV ecosystem. We connect consumers to the content they love, enable content publishers to build and monetize large audiences, and provide advertisers unique capabilities to engage consumers.
From your first day at Roku, you’ll make a valuable — and valued — contribution. We’re a fast-growing public company where no one is a bystander. We offer you the opportunity to delight millions of TV streamers worldwide while gaining meaningful experience across a variety of disciplines.
Our mission is to help Roku scale, enabling the Roku OS on more machines to extend our reach. While most teams see the world in terms of hardware or software, the Platform Portability team does its best work by straddling that line, living in the grey area where every solution could be achieved via hardware or software. Working across that line and at this scale demands that we think in terms of clean, proper, and appropriate portability and reporting abstractions.
Because of this kind of work, we often say, “there’s no such thing as magic.” We don’t accept that something just works; we wonder why and go digging to figure it out. We aren’t content with surface understandings. We go deep and rip it apart, looking to understand how the “magic” gets done for real. We’re a team that values diversity and flexibility of thought. When we look to add new people to our team, beyond technical skill, we are looking for people with deep curiosity around how things work, how willing they are to go one more layer in to learn. We also value people who have worked in multiple ecosystems and haven’t calcified their thinking around one way to do something but being willing to consider lots of alternate approaches.
Tech stack: Because of the nature of the work, our tech stack is very broad, from the hardware abstraction layer up to the OS and programming language. This might include Linux, Android, Tizen, C, C++, boot loaders, drivers, multimedia and streaming media tech, among others.
Roku is a great place for people who want to work in a fast-paced environment where everyone is focused on the company’s success rather than their own. We try to surround ourselves with people who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. We appreciate a sense of humor. We believe a fewer number of very talented folks can do more for less cost than a larger number of less talented teams. We’re independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you’ll be part of a company that’s changing how the world watches TV.
We have a unique culture that we are proud of. We think of ourselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. We come up with the solution, but the solution isn’t real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action gives us a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served us well since 2002.
