He joined the staff of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) as Preparator of Fossils in 1909. He was promoted to Associate Geologist in 1919 and remained in that position until his death. Roundy's paleontological research focused on Carboniferous invertebrates, especially conodonts and ostracods.
