Teamwork makes the stream work.

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 Team

When you work at Roku, you work on a platform that is used by real people: You can show off the fruits of your labor to your family and friends and see it in your favorite stores’ electronics departments.

As a member of the RokuTV Engineering team, you will design and develop embedded software systems that enable our manufacturing partners to build world-class products, with Roku “inside” as their OS. To make this possible, you will work on the Roku OS on new technologies and developing new features while keeping our existing code clean and performant. Additionally, you will work with product managers to accommodate shifting demands and schedules; collaborate cross-functionally with our QA and other development teams; and build solutions with external hardware component vendors.

 

About the Role

Because this is a senior-level role with a high-level of visibility, you must have a proven track record of designing, developing and porting software for new hardware platforms, from prototype to mass production. We value people who pride themselves on their ability to navigate ambiguity, collaborate and partner with both internal and external teams, who have demanding engineering standards and a passion for working within the constraints of partner requirements to build highest performing, best-in-class consumer products.

We aren’t kidding that Roku is a place where no one is a bystander. If you want to work on a team where you will be surrounded by the best talent building things used by millions of people, if you want a tech culture that just works, you should reach out.

  • Roku OS feature development
  • Code maintenance and scalability solution design and development
  • Partner with internal QA and development teams
  • System-on-a-Chip (SoC) integration and board bring-up
  • Third-party API integration
  • Everything involved in our end-to-end product development and release cycles

 

We’re excited if you have:

  • In-depth experience with Embedded Linux Software Engineering, product development, and tools.
  • Extensive experience with C++; Versions 17 or newer preferred.
  • Demonstrable ability to elegantly solve complex problems
  • Experience with Hardware / Devices / Consumer Electronics or related hardware device products. Working experience with TV Hardware or Set-Top-Box hardware is a big plus.

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.
