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 role

As a Software Engineer, Android at Roku, you will be part of a mobile team that is passionate about creating delightful user experiences for millions of users. You will have the opportunity to be part of a team of skilled engineers and will have a chance to make your mark by designing and implementing new features and improving existing features.
Roku's mobile application continues to grow in users and engagement. You must enjoy working on mobile apps at all levels, from networking up to user interfaces and anything in between. We are looking for Android Engineers who are excited about working with one of the most popular media apps.
You are motivated from within, finding and taking on a feature or project simply because that problem needs to be solved and shipped. But that individual must work together with different engineering teams, UI design, product teams, and business leadership to make things happen, which means that engineers succeed here because they can maintain that independent spirit and motivation within a deeply collaborative environment. We are the pragmatic dreamers inventing and re-inventing the world of streaming media.
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.
We are looking for a Software Engineer, Android experienced in building apps at scale to support that commitment. The mobile team is responsible for the architecture and implementation of services that support Roku's mobile applications.
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 app as we grow.

What you'll be doing

  • Design and build advanced applications for the Android platform
  • Maintain and improve the performance of existing Android applications
  • Write and maintain tests using the JUnit/Espresso frameworks
  • Troubleshoot and debug Android applications
  • Write well-designed, testable, and efficient code
  • Contribute to the development of project plans and estimates
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to define, design, and ship new features for mobile devices, optimising for touch experiences.
  • Continuously discover, evaluate, and implement new technologies to maximize development efficiency

We're excited if you have

  • Strong understanding of the entire mobile development life cycle
  • 3+ years of experience in Android mobile development with a focus on IoT using Kotlin or Java, with a track record shipping high-quality app(s) to Google Play
  • Proficient in Kotlin or Java
  • Experience with third-party mobile libraries and APIs
  • Proficient in Android development toolset including Android Studio & Emulator
  • Experience with agile development methodologies
  • 5+ years of software engineering experience.
  • Strong problem-solving and communication skills
  • Bachelors or Masters/Ph.D. in Computer Science or equivalent experience


Roku is committed to offering a diverse range of benefits as part of our compensation package to support our employees and their families. Our comprehensive benefits include global access to mental health and financial wellness support and resources. Local benefits include statutory and voluntary benefits which may include healthcare (medical, dental, and vision), life, accident, disability, commuter, and retirement options (401(k)/pension). Our employees can take time off work for vacation and other personal reasons to balance their evolving work and life needs.

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.
