Roku Is Changing How The World Watches TVRoku is the #1 TV streaming platform in the U.S., 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.

Yet.Because this is an exceptional team, we are seeking unusual talent. Everyone here is an expert but without the myopia of over-specialization.

They foster a strong sense of collaboration and trust with little room for drama. Together, this is a team of people who love to make decisions and own those decisions.About The RoleWith 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.

To support that commitment, the Advanced Development team is focused on designing and developing new core features for the Roku platform. Our goal is to help people find what they want and make it easier for people to stream.

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.

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.
