About Roku

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. Roku strive to surround themselves with people; who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. They appreciate a sense of humor. They are independent thinkers with big ideas, who act boldly, move fast, and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you will be part of a company that is changing how the world watches TV.

Roku have a unique culture that they are very proud of. They think of themselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. They come up with the solution, but the solution isn't real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action provides Roku a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served them well since 2002.
