Expanding engineering talent in Seattle

Rokt is expanding our locations and talent with our newest West Coast office! Earlier this year, we opened an office in Seattle’s Pioneer Square and we’re planning to grow it rapidly by the end of the year.

“We’ve had really good candidates come through,” says John Walzer, our Vice President of Engineering and Head of the Seattle office. “We’re looking to really increase our velocity for hiring here going into the middle of the year.”

Our aim is to grow our employees on the West Coast to 200 Rokt’stars by the end of next year. Since we were founded in 2012, we’ve expanded our talent and locations to help businesses unleash their potential through the power of relevancy. Over the past 10+ years, we’re proud to say that we’ve reached 500 employees around the world in our locations in New York City, London, Tokyo, Singapore, Sydney, and now Seattle.

John Walzer joined our team in early 2023 after 10 years at Amazon, where he worked on Alexa News. He was our first Seattle employee and has been tasked with growing our company’s presence in the area. Walzer is seeking out top engineers and user experience experts to continue to provide top-of-the-line products for our growing marketplace.

“We love Seattle,” Walzer said. “We believe there is a really large population of talented engineers and (machine learning) people, and we think those people can really help us deliver more for our partners.”

At Rokt, we’re excited to expand our presence in Seattle and tap into the talent and expertise that we know the city has to offer.
