Overview

Code Kingdoms is one of Roblox's education partners. We've been teaching new developers to build games online for over 5 years and within the past few years have shifted entirely to Roblox. The goal of our latest project, Code Kingdoms Studio+, is to create a generation of new Roblox developers.

Roblox is a global platform where millions of players create, share and play games together. Every game on the platform has been created by members of the Roblox community using Roblox Studio.

As an Instructional Designer, you will provide aspiring developers with the tools to create their own Roblox games. You will help develop games and turn them into a library of interactive courses used by millions. We want your courses, and the tools we've built within Roblox Studio, to be the default for aspirational Roblox players. Turning them into successful creators will help realise the vision of making Roblox the ultimate gaming platform and a force for educational progress.

The company has raised over $3 million in venture capital and worked with Roblox, Minecraft, and the BBC.
