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

We're seeking a Business Operations Coordinator/Associate to support end-to-end procurement of indirect goods and services on behalf of the Programming & Engagement division which supports The Roku Channel. The Roku Channel (TRC) is an ad supported and premium subscription video channel available on Roku, mobile, web and other streaming platforms. The procurement team negotiates competitive deal economics and business terms across all key deal components with third-party vendors leveraged by The Roku Channel. They also manage vendor onboarding along with associated payments and purchase requisitions. The ideal candidate should have experience and/or direct exposure to vendors or has served in an external client support role in the media and tech space (OTT a plus).

This role will also work cross-functionally with business stakeholders at all levels. Stakeholders range in disciplines, and include technical, product, marketing, creative, finance, and business strategy. As such, the tools, systems, and workflows required to ensure operational efficiency and scale will vary. A technical understanding of how systems communicate and vendor integration into Roku's content pipeline will be important. This role will partner heavily with legal, finance, and IT. In addition, this role will support other process improvement initiatives that flow through the TRC Business Operations team. Someone who is inquisitive, pragmatic, and detail-oriented will thrive in this role.

Our business is fast paced, requiring the ability to work autonomously with minimal supervision in an ever-changing environment. The right mix of organizational and communication skills will be the key to success. Attention to detail and a proven ability to manage priorities are also essential.

What You'll Be Doing
Support deal leads in deal preparation and negotiations by gathering, distilling, and documenting business requirements, organizing and coordinating vendor outreach and responses to RFPs, and initiating contract execution workflows.
Oversee the creation and maintenance of relevant documentation and training resources related to procurement and vendor management.
Manage payments and purchase requisitions for all vendors.
Provide supplemental support for other key initiatives flowing through the Business Operations team related to Procurement.

We're Excited if You Have
1-3 years of professional and/or equivalent educational experience in a similar function, discipline and/or industry (inclusive of internships and coursework)
Demonstrated ability to meet timelines for deliverables
MS Excel Proficiency
Interest in learning the nuances of the streaming space, and lending a hand where needed
Detail-oriented, analytical, methodical, and committed to driving quality forward.
Superb communication skills - verbal, written, and presentation with ease and fluidity between technical and business topics.

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.
