Principal Software Engineer, Notifications Team

Every day, tens of millions of people come to Roblox to explore, create, play, learn, and connect with friends in 3D immersive digital experiences– all created by our global community of developers and creators.

At Roblox, we’re building the tools and platform that empower our community to bring any experience that they can imagine to life. Our vision is to reimagine the way people come together, from anywhere in the world, and on any device. We’re on a mission to connect a billion people with optimism and civility, and looking for amazing talent to help us get there.

A career at Roblox means you’ll be working to shape the future of human interaction, solving unique technical challenges at scale, and helping to create safer, more civil shared experiences for everyone.

The Notifications Team is building Roblox’s next generation notifications platform to allow our teams and developers to easily build respectful and helpful notification experiences for our users.

These notifications include Push, In-App/In-Experience, Messages, Email, and SMS – basically any way a user is contacted both on-platform and off-platform. The mission of our team is to connect the right user, to the right content, at the right time. Whether it’s a new update from a user’s favorite experience, or a friend invitation to co-play, we make sure that the notifications that are being delivered are what the user wants to see, and when they should receive it.

We are also building what we call our Core Pipeline, making sure that we can deliver notifications of all types to our users. Soon we’ll add more functionality such as scheduling and ranking (using ML models) to make sure that the right users are getting the right notifications and using advanced AI for personalized notifications and to combat spam!
