Global TV streaming company, Roku, is America’s No.1 TV streaming platform by hours watched and pioneered the way in streaming services. Roku’s platform serves more than 56 million active accounts worldwide.
US-headquartered in San Jose, California, Roku chose Manchester’s Circle Square as their second UK hub to access its huge existing digital skills-base and proximity to world-leading university-based R&D facilities along the Oxford Road Corridor. Since locating at Circle Square, Roku has agreed a partnership deal with the University of Manchester on access to future talent to ensure they recruit the best and brightest emerging tech talent.
For Roku, the accessibility to emerging talent and the opportunity to be in the heart of Manchester’s thriving tech ecosystem was seen as essential to continue their growth and world-leading innovations in media tech.
