Job Description

Roku is changing how the world watches TV

Roku 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. 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

Roku’s Denmark office is focused on R&D around wireless audio protocols and the company’s whole home licensing program which enables OEM brands to license Roku Connect software to enable AV devices to connect into the Roku ecosystem.

We are looking for engineers with extensive experience in embedded Linux, system-on-a-chip (SoC) development and integration, streaming audio and video technologies,  wireless communication and integration of third-party code. A proven track record of shipping high quality software on embedded platforms is essential. This is a great role for a senior professional who enjoys a high-level of visibility or for someone looking to take that next step up in their career.

What you’ll be doing

  • Implementing and maintain wireless audio protocols for in-home sound distribution
  • Implementing and maintain ecosystem functionality across Roku and 3rd party products
  • Working closely with third party audio service providers on integration into the Roku systems
  • Developing new audio platforms and products

We’re excited if you have

  • 7+ years of relevant software development experience.
  • In-depth understanding of Linux, tools, libraries and open source development.
  • Extensive embedded systems programming experience with C/C++.
  • Ability to work in both user and kernel space.
  • Intimate knowledge of media playback engines and streaming protocols.
  • Proven track record of success with embedded system development projects.
  • Ability to accurately estimate software tasks and work to schedule.
  • Bachelors or Masters in Computer Science or equivalent engineering experience.

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.
