Product Developer, also known as [PDV], is a rank that replaced the [HPD] (Head of Product Development) role, supposedly so that more people could have the role rather than a single person. This position is for people that improve and create new content for the game (e.g. trains, scenery).

This role is not a managerial position.

They directly report to the Innovations Director and do not have anything to do with the Operational departments.

Former Names of Rank

  • Head of Product Development [HPD]

How to apply for this role?

There is currently no official way to apply to become a Product Developer [PDV].

Previously PDVs are not recruited publicly. On 18 September 2020, BanTech posted a recruitment notice on Roblox Developer Forum, looking for a new PDV to upgrade trains [1], and salary in terms of real money would be offered. In the end, a new PDV named aeroware was hired.
