Web Product Manager
Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to critical and player acclaim. As the most played video game in the world, over 32 million play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.
We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. Like us, you take play seriously; you’re passionate about games. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints.
That’s where you come in.
Riot Games is looking for a creative and driven Web Product Manager to help us organize and coordinate the development of a rapidly growing, community focused web team that’s at the cutting edge of technology. On the Riot Games web team you will not find yourself working on pre-packaged or pre-determined solutions, but instead collaborating with our team to identify new and creative ways to scale one of the fastest growing websites in the world. We are self-organized, self-motivated, and the drivers of our own solutions.
