The intern flair used on the developer forum.

An intern is a person (usually a student enrolled in college) who is involved in a limited period of work offered by an organization or an employer with the intention of gaining relevant skills and experience in a particular field of work. In addition, an internship can be used to create a professional network that can assist with future job opportunities via hands-on learning, preparing one for full-time work following graduation.

On Roblox, internships consist of an exchange of services for experience between the intern and Roblox, and are usually arranged annually on the DevForum. In some cases, former interns will be hired by Roblox as official staff members, due to meeting specific requirements of an available job role and their familiarity with the Roblox platform.

Accelerator program

This program is different to regular intern positions (normal Interns would be conducting tasks similar to a staff member). Accelerators form a dev team and create a game while working at Roblox HQ.

To quote the most recent official thread , the requirements for this program:

  • All participants must be 18+ years old by the start of the internship.
  • All teams must consist of at least 2 Developers.
  • A programmer and builder are required to be on-site.
  • Each team needs a designated team leader.

Accelerators are required to work full-time at the Roblox HQ. International accelerators are helped with the US exchange visa process by Roblox Corp. The program lasts approximately 12 weeks. Interns are paid for their work (the exact amount is not public), however interns are not paid for relocation and are expected to organize housing themselves.

As of spring 2020, the Accelerator Program will bring on 30 developers.

Incubator program

According to this official post, the Incubator Program was where Roblox developers aim to produce creations that are currently difficult to create on the Roblox platform, developers are asked to make challenging and hand picked creations that will impact Roblox. Incubators work with the Engineering and Product teams to help shape the future of Roblox.

The program runs for 20 weeks (5 months)

Similarities with accelerators:

  • You must be 18 years old by the start of the program
  • Many universities do provide credit for these programs
  • You do not need to be in the US (Roblox will help with visas)
  • Housing is your own responsibility 
  • You are paid enough to live comfortably near the HQ in a roommate situation
  • Both programs require participants to work full-time at the Roblox HQ
