We’re looking for enthusiastic Graduate Software Engineers at Rokt. You’ve studied hard, completed labs, had some experience and now you’re ready to start coding and ship. With Rokt we’ll give you the tools, support and environment to get straight into coding. You will join a team of experienced engineers who are passionate about writing world class code.

In your first week you’ll have your first task, your first month, you will have completed a number of fixes and features (at least one of which will be in production), started peer-reviewing your colleagues’ code, participate in team task estimations and a growing understanding of your team's systems. By the end of your first year you will have led design workshops, started to master a handful of technologies and taken primary responsibility for a small system (or a component in a larger system).

Our graduate program incorporates a six-month rotation around several Engineering teams. The actual rotation is selected based on the candidate’s skills, experience and aspirations. While you start with one engineering team, your opportunities will be throughout the engineering structure and you'll work with commercial side to get exposure to the whole business. This is not just a grad program, this is the start of your engineering career.

Engineers at Rokt are not afraid of a challenge; we thrive on using our creativity and delivering suitable solutions. Review the teams below and find where your true passion lies.

Platform team

As part of the Rokt Platform team, you will be contributing to a complex web application and related backend services that enable our internal teams and our clients to create, manage and report on their Rokt campaigns and integrations.
