Roku is changing how the world watches TV
Roku is the #1 TV streaming platform in the US, 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 around the world while gaining meaningful experience across a variety of disciplines.
About the role
With so many people using our products globally, we’ve become well-known for products that “just work” right out of the box and integrate almost by magic. That doesn’t happen by accident, which is why we are committed to making sure our products aren’t just intuitive, they’re obvious. Our goal is to help people find what they want and make it easier for people to stream, across all of our platforms. We accomplish this using state-of-the-art technology and engineering to make it happen, with consideration for the customer as the center of all that we do.
As a Data Science Intern at Roku you’ll have multiple paths to choose from. Teams you’ll have an opportunity to work with range from devices and CoreOS, content, and advertising. No matter the team, you’ll be responsible for directly developing innovative solutions and high-quality products that touch millions of people every day.
This is the role for you if you:
- Are currently pursuing a PhD degree in a quantitative field (e.g., Machine Learning, Operations Research, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Computer Vision, or similar)
- Have strong analytical, project management & presentation skills.
- Have a foundational understanding or experience applying statistical concepts to real world problems (A/B testing, logistic regression, etc.)
- Have excellent command of SQL and experience working with Big Data
- Have experience coding in Python (preferred) or R
- Thrive in an ever changing and quickly growing work environment
- Graduating in December 2023 or later
Here’s a video describing our team’s way of working.
We strive to make Roku a great place to work for employees who don’t need a lot of handholding. We’re independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. We have high expectations and pay well in a competitive market. In short, at Roku you’ll be part of a small but mighty team that’s changing how the world watches TV. We think that’s pretty cool. How about you?
The Roku Culture
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.
