The future will not be televised. It will be streamed. Help us make it happen.
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
The Senior Manager, People Research will be a catalyst and critical thought leader in reimagining and transforming the People function to be a competitive advantage for Roku. You will directly engage with HR and business leaders to scope complex human and data related questions. You will build and lead a team of People Researchers and Data Scientists responsible for strategic initiatives, research and experimentation. You will analyze, model, test, and build solutions that provide insights and recommendations. You will solve essential business challenges such as (but not limited to):

  • Identifying what factors drive and improve collaboration across the organization
  • Predicting which employees are at risk of leaving the organization before they leave
  • Predicting which of our applicants each year would make great hires
  • Identifying what characteristics make a superlative engineer or creative designer, etc.

    What you'll be doing

    • Build relationships with leaders across key HR functions and with key partners outside HR to help define an impactful research agenda and roadmap
    • Build our integrated employee survey strategy and own insights from our employee listening channels
    • Lead the design of research projects to uncover trends and opportunities at a macro/enterprise level and at the individual business unit level
    • Develop testable hypotheses about our workforce and conduct statistical analyses
    • Connect data from a variety of tools and systems, both internal and external
    • Help develop a better understanding of the key predictors of employee experience and performance
    • Above all else, you will contribute to the continual evolution of our HR function by building partnerships, identifying challenge areas, effectively communicating findings, and ultimately influencing executive decision-making

      We're excited if you have

      • Advanced degree (MS or PhD) in an analytical field
      • 7+ years of relevant experience, ideally at a technology company or in a consulting environment
      • Experience in survey design and programs
      • Experience with programming packages (e.g., Python, R, SAS, SPSS)
      • Experience with database querying (i.e., SQL)
      • Strong grasp of advanced research methods and statistical techniques
      • Strong problem solving, communication and presentation skills

        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.
