      Hey, everyone,

      I’ve pulled myself out of the engineering mines for a moment to send out a note about our kick-ass new video site, currently in development and in open beta for those of you who are new around here. I want to thank all of you who have been using the new beta site at svod.roosterteeth.com, and especially those of you who have sent us your feedback. There has been a ton of it, and we appreciate every word. We’re trying to respond to as many tickets as we can personally, and we want you to know that the team here is really listening to you and working on the things you bring to our attention. Even after we officially leave beta and launch the site, we’ll continue to work every day to make it the best place in the world to watch Rooster Teeth content.  


      In the meantime, we are squashing as many of the big bugs as we can, and doing so as fast as we can. Some issues with login that caused a “Grey Screen” - that’s fixed. Login from Facebook, also fixed. There are still some issues around older videos not playing. We are aware of this and are fixing them as fast as humanly (or computerly) possible!


      So if you haven’t been to svod.roosterteeth.com to check out the beta site, go do that! For all of you using the site, please don’t stop. In fact, use it more. Chat during livestreams and drop some comments on the videos you watch. Let’s start making this new house feel like a home for the entire community! 


      Stay tuned for updates! <3


    • Video Site Open Beta! - 2.13.18

      1 week ago

      revelsrouser Product / Design

      Hello, Rooster Teeth Community! For those who don’t know me, I’m John and I work on the product and engineering team here at RT helping to create our brand spanking new video platform. We’ve been in closed beta for a few weeks now, and I can’t thank those community members enough who helped us put the site through its paces and provided amazing feedback. Today we have some pretty exciting news - we are now opening up the beta to EVERYONE. Yes, all of you can now head over to svod.roosterteeth.com and watch videos on our new platform until your eyes bleed (if your eyes actually bleed please stop watching videos and go see a doctor).


      Access to content will be the same as on the current site - FIRST members get to watch live broadcasts and see FIRST only shows, and community members signed into their Rooster Teeth accounts will have access to features that anonymous viewers won’t have. Speaking of features... while you’re on the site here are a few things we definitely want you to check out:


      • You can chat with friends and staff on all live streams!

      • The video player saves your spot so you can jump back in anytime

      • Improved search so you can find the content you’re looking for

      • Get notifications about new episodes being added to your watchlist

      • Explore content from all of our channels right on the homepage


      Please remember that this site is in beta, so you may run into a bug here and there. Click the feedback icon on the beta site to report bugs and we will work through them as fast as we can. Interested in hearing other users opinions on the new site? Join the forum and start talking!  


      We’ll keep you updated in the coming weeks about bug fixes and new features planned for the video platform, news about what we’re doing with new mobile apps, a full site launch date, and even information on what we’re planning for the future of the community site (community is going to be so great, and we can’t wait to show you more in the coming weeks and months). Thank you all for your patience as we get this new site rolled out.


      Enjoy the open beta and have a happy Mardi Gras!

    • Beta Release and user tests

      3 weeks ago

      Hi all! I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you who have submitted feedback and reported bugs with the beta release. It really does help to get direct feedback from our community so that we can build something that you love. I've been spending my weekends conducting user tests with members of the RT Austin community group, which has been incredibly valuable. I've been in UX/UI for years now, and finding people who are willing to give up their time to make a product successful is normally a huge challenge. It's so rad to work for a company that has such a passionate fanbase. We've got a lot in store for 2018. It's going to be an exciting year for our product & engineering team and hopefully for you all as well! We will be opening beta access to everyone very soon, so stay tuned for updates!

    • One year anniversary

      A little over a year ago I got a phone call from Vitaly, a Fullscreen recruiter, asking if I would be interested in interviewing for a Sr. Product Design UX/UI position at Rooster Teeth. I was definitely interested, but I had no idea that working at Rooster Teeth would be such a dream job. I get to build cool stuff for an incredibly passionate fanbase with some of the most talented, intelligent, and genuinely fun people I have ever met. Today is my one year anniversary and I still feel so fortunate for the opportunity.

    • Paul Bunyan didn't use the internet.

      Resident frontend guru, John Jameson and I were talking about the least amount of money we would accept to never use the internet again. So like 30 million dollars and you just go live in the mountains. Jameson said, “I’m picturing like a shrunken down Paul Bunyan.” When I asked what he meant he said, “Well… he didn’t use the internet”. Which I’m pretty sure wouldn’t make the short list of Paul Bunyan descriptors. Also, a shrunken down Paul Bunyan is really just a person.


      So, there you go. Something about that interaction made me laugh. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  

    • Big news from your friendly RT Product & Engineering team!

      Greetings Y’all!


      Allow me to make a long overdue introduction. Earlier this year I joined the Rooster Teeth team as Product Designer UX/UI. Basically, it’s been my job to completely redesign our desktop, mobile, and 10 foot experiences. It’s a tall order, but it’s also a dream job to design cool stuff for such a rad and passionate fanbase.


      I’m very excited to announce that a brand new Rooster Teeth web experience is less than one month away, and we need your help to make it great! This October we will be sending out a limited number of invites to test our beta release. Just click this link to sign up, and check out a sneak preview of the new site. We’ll reserve your place in line and email you when a spot opens up.


      I’ll be checking in with you all on a regular basis to gather your feedback. Stay tuned for updates!
