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 pioneered streaming to the TV and continues to innovate and lead the industry. While we are well-positioned to help shape the future of television and streaming media worldwide, continued success stems from our ability to find, engage, and hire the best technical talent from around the world.


That’s why we are looking for a technical sourcer who will play a vital role in the company's growth. In this role, you will be a critical part of Roku’s ongoing evolution as we continue to pioneer the streaming industry. We are looking for someone who loves being a part of a high-growth company and takes the responsibility of recruiting for our End User Experience team. Because of our culture, we are looking for someone who is data-driven, with a track record of innovative and effective recruiting and hiring execution resulting in clear, measurable business impact.

What you’ll be doing

  • Be a trusted advisor of the hiring managers and other staffing and HR team members; provide leadership in the area of technical talent acquisition
  • Thoroughly evaluate candidates, prepare professional write-ups, and present candidates in an accurate and detailed manner
  • Analyze research and understand the requirements to identify qualified talent. Help hiring managers craft compelling job descriptions.
  • Search for candidates on portals, search engines, using active and passive techniques like cold calling and social media tools to identify candidates
  • Communicate at all levels to inform the staffing and HR teams, and management about a candidate search status
  • Identify areas for improvement with the organization and staffing, partner with those necessary to make the change
  • Strive for enthusiastically satisfied clients on every engagement 

We’re excited if you have

  • Previous experience working both for an agency and in-house as a recruiter sourcing software and engineering candidates
  • Extensive experience in sourcing and identifying candidates through social media and other non-traditional methods (e.g., Boolean, Facebook, LinkedIn, Indeed, etc.)
  • Sound business judgment and common sense to approach obstacles and solve problems during candidate searches
  • Experience balancing the demands of the customer with the defined constraints of the candidate search
  • 3+ years of technical recruiting experience with extensive experience recruiting software engineers, programmers, developers, network engineers, and project managers
  • Ability and willingness to recruit for other positions as requested

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.
