Principal Product Designer, ROS
Every day, tens of millions of people come to Roblox to explore, create, play, learn, and connect with friends in 3D immersive digital experiences– all created by our global community of developers and creators.
At Roblox, we’re building the tools and platform that empower our community to bring any experience that they can imagine to life. Our vision is to reimagine the way people come together, from anywhere in the world, and on any device. We’re on a mission to connect a billion people with optimism and civility, and looking for amazing talent to help us get there.
A career at Roblox means you’ll be working to shape the future of human interaction, solving unique technical challenges at scale, and helping to create safer, more civil shared experiences for everyone.
As a Principal Product Designer on ROS (the Roblox Operating System), you'll be focused on accelerating the systems that scale Roblox. ROS is our suite of internal applications that drive employee productivity, promote collaboration, and support the most creative workforce in the world. You'll be responsible for the UX architecture, design language, and user engagement of custom capabilities that scale Roblox. You will combine internal tools and third-party applications for People Operations, Talent Acquisition, Budgeting, Roadmapping, and Business Analytics. You'll also lead and mentor a team of designers owning the execution of these verticals.
You have experience leading and innovating in the internal application space, with a deep instinct for what great looks like with consumer-facing enterprise tools. You'll need to be strategic and create long-term design plans encompassing a suite of products, and uplevel the visual design language of ROS. Our company goal is to reach 1 billion users with optimism and civility, and you can't reach 1B users without ensuring every Roblox employee has a powerful platform behind the scenes.
