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 worldwide while gaining meaningful experience across various disciplines.

About the role

The Revenue Analyst will report to the Director of Revenue, Advertising, and work closely with our Advertising Sales, Deal Desk and FP&A teams. This person will primarily be responsible for revenue recognition, and reporting. This position will conduct monthly and quarterly close activities for revenue, validate and reconcile revenue related accounts to various systems, assist in analyzing data. An ideal candidate should possess great attention to detail, thorough knowledge of US-GAAP, and be highly motivated to get things done. We are looking for a high-energy, hands-on individual that has the ability to work independently and cooperatively with other teams in support of the company's revenue drivers and initiatives.

  • Ensure accurate revenue recognition for existing and new business models
  • Analyze and record ad sales activity to the general ledger for month-end close. Includes the application of multiple element accounting, in accordance with GAAP, to the determination of revenue and deferred revenue
  • Assist the financial close process for monthly, quarterly and annual financials, including prepare journal entries and account reconciliations. Review and ensure all journal entries have appropriate supporting documentation and approval
  • Work with Advertising Sales to ensure reporting consistency and resolve recognition or invoicing issues

    We're excited if you have

        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.
