About the International Platform Team
Roku’s International Platform Team is responsible for the all monetization streams of Roku’s platform business in all markets outside of the US. This includes Content, Advertising and our AVOD offer The Roku Channel. The team is based in Mexico, Brazil, Canada, UK, the US and the Netherlands.
We are interested in forging more international partnerships that thread the needle between strategy, technology, entertainment, and finance, driving important growth projects that determine when we build, rent, or buy our next leap forward. Our team is small and very international, providing the opportunity for outsized impact and exposure with Roku’s senior business, product and technology leaders. We are continuously plotting and seeking new ways to accelerate our roadmaps and bring additional strength to Roku’s International Business.
We are super selective about the partnerships we pursue. But on your best days, you’ll feel the exhilaration of bringing together all the pieces of a challenging transaction that meaningfully advances the growth of the company. For people who like to ideate and question, who have the resolve to get things done, who can think analytically and strategically about a diverse array of challenges, there’s nothing like making a genuine difference in the course of a company like Roku. And that’s what we do every day.
