Roka Swimswam_ROKA_Javi_MaverickProROKA is a premium multisport brand that was founded in 2011 by two former All-American swimmers from Stanford University, who, after being frustrated by the wetsuit offerings on the market, set out to make the fastest wetsuit on the planet. After two years of product development, the ROKA team launched their patent-pending Maverick wetsuit, Viper swimskin and SIM short training line in March 2013.

In their first season, ROKA products saw widespread acceptance by elite and developing swimmers alike, and ROKA pro athletes finished first out of the water in many of the biggest races of the year, including the Ironman World Championship and the ITU WTS Grand Final. ROKA is now one of the fastest growing multisport brands in the world and is poised for significant growth and category expansion. Join us!

Roka Swimswam_ROKA_MaverickPro_LaunchWe are seeking the best and those who want to be the best. ROKA is a high-performance multisport TEAM. We support each other’s development as the foundation for our growth. We are committed to building the top performing products in every category we enter, and we strive to offer the best customer experience possible. We have an entrepreneurial, fast-paced and fun tribal culture. We’re looking to attract the brightest talent available and run a rolling application process throughout the year (even when we aren’t immediately adding to our team). We look at everything a candidate brings to the table and value qualitative factors like self-awareness, judgment and positive energy as much as resume bullet points or GPAs.
We look forward to meeting you.
