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 PC game in the world, over 100 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.
As a Technical Producer, you will use your exceptional technical knowledge and project management skills to drive progress within your product teams while making sure the quality, availability and costs of the solutions being developed meet stakeholders expectations. You'll work with a passionate team of product owners, delivery leads, SME’s, and all of our external vendors on a mission to build products that engage and entertain players for Russia/CIS region. You'll join an agile and fast-paced environment with short development cycles (from idea to production in 1-2 months, or even less) and a fast direct feedback loop from internal stakeholders (regular 1-1’s with peers with brutally honest feedback to make everyone better) and players (through forums, surveys, direct interactions, and etc.). You'll not be afraid to make your hands dirty by writing code or helping external vendors to overcome a problem in the software architecture or integration.
As a Moscow Rioter, you'll join a smaller but dedicated team of Rioters striving to be the most player-focused game company in the world. You'll share our prioritization of player experience, rejection of convention and maniacal passion for gaming. Rioters in Moscow are driven to deliver unique player experiences that show Russian/CIS players they aren't lost in translation.

- A doer: you've got experience shipping successful projects in a live tech environment; you've built up a resume by breaking through integration barriers and getting shit done
- A capable and proven leader: you're able to manage external vendors and partners so well that they can deliver good quality content within tight deadlines

- Own everything related to software development: architecture, tech stack, development methodology and everything you think is yours by right
- Show extreme ownership over your deliverables in a live tech environment, including helping external vendors to solve live issues affecting players and making sure not to make another outage because of a burst of popularity of a newly launched product that you didn’t anticipate...
- Help to integrate local Russia/CIS products with global Riot services and solutions: help external vendors to customize game clients and use public or private Riot services; aligning with teams, owning the services, on connections, load, and etc.
