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. To support that commitment, the Roku OS QA Team focuses on testing all products and features for the industry's most reliable streaming media platform. Our goal is to help people find what they want and

make it easier for people to stream. 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.

What you'll be doing

  • Collaborate with Manual QA, Project leads, and development throughout the software development life cycle
  • Develop Automated tests that run on Roku players and TVs
  • Convert manual test cases into reliable, repeatable automated tests
  • Contribute to the Continuous Integration pipeline by running component builds, creating and running Deployment jobs on individual stages on Jenkins, and running automated functional tests.
  • Debug failing tests to improve product and automated test quality
  • Promote coding conventions and standards for code re-usability and cleanliness
  • Conduct code reviews for improved code quality and optimization
  • Taking ownership and driving the QA for product features
  • Mentoring less experienced members of the team

We are excited if you have

  • 6+ years of Quality Assurance experience
  • 5+ years of hands-on experience with automation systems and unit testing (Python)
  • Strong problem-solving, analytical and technical troubleshooting skills
  • Solid knowledge and experience developing test plans and test cases
  • Strong debugging skills
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Research and documentation skills
  • Ability to learn new technologies quickly
  • Ability to work independently and be self-directed
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related
  • Experience with big data analytics: Splunk, ELK, Hive, Redshift, etc. (nice to have)
  • In-depth knowledge of streaming back-ends and formats (nice to have)
  • Experience working with Smart/Digital TV (HDMI), Setup Boxes, Wi-Fi
  • (2.4Ghz & 5GHz), TV remote controllers (nice to have)
  • International product experience (nice to have)
  • Possess the skills and confidence to navigate working in a fast-paced environment and be frequently taken out of your comfort zone. 
  • Multilingual in German, French, Spanish and Italian is beneficial

 

 

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.
