Roku Is Changing How The World Watches TV

Roku pioneered streaming to the TV. We connect users to the streaming content they love, enable content publishers to build and monetize large audiences, and provide advertisers with unique capabilities to engage consumers. Roku streaming players and Roku TV--- models are available around the world through direct retail sales and licensing arrangements with TV brands and pay TV operators.

At Roku, we're changing the way people watch TV. As early leaders in the streaming revolution, we've relied on technical excellence and thoughtful user experience to build products people love.

The Roku Voice team aims to extend this approach and focuses on building a voice system that is best in industry at understanding customer requests. 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.

We are looking for a senior technical product and program manager with a head for business, and a pragmatic, strategic approach to problem-solving. You are smart, hands-on, non-political, a good team player, and interested in delivering high quality software on time to make our customers happy.

You will be joining a talented, high-performance team with a history of delivery. We are looking for someone who can help us keep up this pace and continue delivering high quality as we grow. The dates are aggressive, the technology we're building is novel, our competitors are strong, the opportunity is large. You should find this exciting and enjoy the idea of working with a team of excellent people to compete in this space.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Drive execution on our product roadmap, guiding design, development and launch. Worry about the details. Unblock the team.
  • Engage at a detailed technical level with Engineering teams to deliver on product requirements. Listen, build consensus, decide on the specifics, and write requirements. Execute on these plans, allowing the team to develop great products in a timely fashion.
  • Build strong relationships across the organization. Be an authority on your products, be approachable, and help make the connections needed to keep the team moving forward.
  • Measure launched products and feed insights back into our product development processes. For a given product, figure out how we will measure "Good", and drive the building of the tools to measure it.

    Required Experience/Qualifications:

  • Minimum 5 years of experience working as a product manager.
  • You have a passion for working in the emerging field of voice-powered technologies and products.
  • Prior work experience in software engineering or an equivalent technical area desired. Prior industry experience in consumer electronics and/or voice systems helpful but not required.
  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, organizational, verbal, written and presentation communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Bachelor's degree (in Computer Science or a related field), MBA Preferred.

    Our Unique 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.
