Calling ALL Roblox Developers!
This year, we are excited to announce that we will be adding to our Spring & Summer Opportunities with a new Fall class! Our fall class is planned to run September - December*.
*We typically arrange specific dates based on the candidate and thus these dates can change
If you would like the opportunity to come to Roblox HQ to create a new game or improve an existing one while working alongside the engineering and developer relations team, we highly encourage you to apply! We are looking for developers from all backgrounds and skill sets: Builders, scripters, music composers, UI designers and any other development category on the Roblox Platform.
Got a development group? We are continuing to offer group applications! Solo creator? That works too! The choice is up to you.
If you are unsure about your level of proficiency, we still encourage you to apply!
This survey is now closed.
Sign ups will close May 17 at 5 PM PST.
EDIT: Thanks to everyone who applied!
If I am new to Roblox Development, should I apply?
This program is designed for experienced developers who have demonstrated proficiency and have a deep understanding on Roblox’s systems and game development process. We encourage everyone to apply, but the main goal of the program is to provide experienced developers the guidance and support needed to accelerate their success on Roblox.
Do I need to attend in person?
Yes. You will be required to work full-time at the Roblox HQ in San Mateo, California.
Why are there no hard dates for the program?
While we have a general range of the months we want the program to be held over, we are pretty flexible with each group’s availability and will work with accepted applicants to set exact start/finish dates in your offer letter.
Do I need to be a US citizen in order to participate?
No. However, if you live outside the United States, you will need to qualify for a J-1 US exchange Visa. If you are accepted to participate, Roblox will assist you with the visa process. The visa requires you to be pursuing further education full-time in a college/university or to have graduated doing so within the last 12 months.
Does this program count as an internship for my University?
Many Universities do provide credit for this program but every school is different. You should consult with your University Officials on this topic.
How long is the Accelerator Program?
The program will run 12 weeks.
Do I have to be 18+ to participate in the program?
Yes. If you will be 18 years old by the time your Accelerator Program begins, you can still participate.
How will housing work?
It will be up to you to find your own accommodations and pay for rent, but this program should pay enough for you to live in the area in a roommate situation. In the past, program attendees have teamed up to find places to stay for their tenure at Roblox to split the cost of rent. Upon your application being accepted, Roblox will reach out to you with a channel for meeting and talking with other program participants so that you can get to know others who may also be looking for housing.
What amenities can I look forward to if I am accepted?
We have free snacks. We also have free lunch. There’s a lot more where that came from
