Posted by roblOX developer on September 20, 2018 08:02:23As the developer community in many developing countries has become more and more entrenched over the past few years, the topic of “developing” has become even more contentious in some circles.
As a developer myself, I’ve experienced firsthand how difficult it can be to find a job in this country, and how frustrating it can feel to be on a shortlist for a job offer, only to have the offer cancelled after several months.
There are so many things to take into account when you apply for a developer position, and so many options available to choose from.
So when I heard that the company behind the popular Roblox game-development platform was launching an exchange where developers could exchange jobs, I was pretty excited.
RoblOX has a huge following, and this is a great opportunity to meet some of the biggest names in the industry, to show you what it’s like to be an active developer in the world of gaming.
But as soon as I started to think about the actual job-market situation, things started to get a bit murky.
I mean, the developers are supposed to be looking for work in the US, right?
So what exactly is a RoblOx developer?
And why are developers working in developing nations so unhappy about the situation?
What you need to know about RoblX developer exchange:What’s happening:When did it start?
The RoblOxy program is a partnership between Roblix and Microsoft that’s been running for the last few years.
The exchange aims to provide jobseekers with a platform to exchange jobs with the company’s top developers in the developing world.
This platform allows developers from around the world to find jobs in the Roblx platform.
The goal is to make sure that the top developers get the best opportunities in the tech world.
What’s the catch?
As of today, the platform is only open to American developers.
However, RoblAX developer partners will be able to work on RoblIX apps in the coming weeks, and in the next few months, RoBlOX will expand to other countries in Asia and the Middle East.
What can you do to help?
You can learn more about RoBlX developer partners and the job-search platform here.
How to get started:As of now, you can apply for one of the 20 positions on the platform, and then you’ll be able select one of four different types of positions based on your skills, experience, and interests.
You can choose to work in one of these positions, or work in any combination of positions.
If you’re interested in working with Roblax developer partners in the future, you’ll have to sign up for an annual RoblXY membership.
What do you need from me?
In order to apply for the positions, you need the following information:You need to have a Microsoft Azure subscriptionIf you’re a US resident, you must have a valid US driver’s licenseYou need a valid visaYou can only apply once, but you’ll only need to apply once per companyIf you don’t have a subscription, you will be asked to log in with your Microsoft Azure account and choose your desired positionYou’ll then be given an opportunity to complete an application form.
This process takes around 30-45 minutes.
If you do not have a specific company that is interested in your position, you may still apply for other positions in the near future.
