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
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.
