The target audience for our B2B SaaS offerings would be decision-makers and influencers within Roblox that are responsible for user education, security, content management, infrastructure, and community management. Based on their pain points and the nature of their operations, it is reasonable to assume that individuals in IT, Product Management, User Experience, and Community Management departments would be our main point of interest.
