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.

You'll be responsible for developing engaging experiences at player-facing events, including the run-up to them. You'll plan and execute event strategies with precision and skill, while finding creative solutions to challenges that come along with event management. Whether you're planning the next LEC Finals or International Esports Event such as MSI or Worlds  in Europe, you'll make the tough calls that drive energetic, fan-focused events.

As a Rioter in Berlin, you'll join a tight-knit team that shares our focus on player experience, rejection of convention and maniacal passion for gaming. Together with a team of dedicated esports zealots you will create awesome player experiences in and around League of Legends esports.
