The Riot Manifesto
Player Experience First
We obsess over every part of the experience, from a player’s first game to their thousandth win, from installation to support to esports broadcasts. It all matters.
We listen to what players say and do. We analyze. Then we make data-informed decisions to improve the experience.
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 entrepreneurial teams who prefer action over process and bureaucracy.
We’re a sports team, not a family.
As a meritocracy, we value results delivered.
Take Play Seriously
It’s never just a game.
We play lots of games and proudly call ourselves gamers. Even at work, we make time for daily play and fun.
We’re professionals, but don’t take ourselves too seriously.
Stay Hungry, Stay Humble
We strive to be humbitious – ambitious and humble.
Complacency kills innovation, but ambition kills complacency.
We humbly seek and accept feedback.
We credit the larger team: the families, teammates and players who make it all possible.
And we believe there’s always more we can do for players.
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.
