Brand Manager, UK - Publishing
Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development and publishing can result in great experiences. 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 people play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve our products.
We’re looking for humble but ambitious razor-sharp pros 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.
