The Riot Manifesto
Player Experience First
We obsess over every aspect of the total experience.
From a newb's first game to a veteran's thousandth, from installation to matchmaking to support to televised esports. It all matters.
We listen to what players say and do. We analyze deeply. Then we act to make their experience better.
Impossible’s our favorite kind of possible.
Doing the right thing often requires disregarding the rules and upending the status quo.
Focus on Talent and Team
We attract, develop, and cultivate.
We foster entrepreneurial teams who prefer action (kicking ass) over process and bureaucracy (taking names).
As a meritocracy, we hold Rioters accountable for exercising judgment and delivering value.
Take Play Seriously
It’s never just a game.
We play lots of games, especially our own. Every Rioter's first day begins with a play test.
Though we're serious professionals, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We make time for daily play and fun. Memes litter presentations, squirt guns keep the peace at Show & Tell, and PC Bangs are built into new offices.
Stay Hungry, Stay Humble
We're humbitious – ambitious but humble.
Ambition cures diseases of corporate complacency. Plus, little plans just have no magic in them.
Humility's a must, too. Rioters welcome feedback and always remember the families, teammates, partners, and (especially) players who make it all possible.
Where We Play
Riot Games’ HQ is based in sunny Santa Monica, California, but we’ve got 15 offices across the globe. Our international teams ensure that player experiences aren’t lost in translation - no matter where your desk sits, you’re still a Rioter.
