Riot engineers bring deep knowledge of specific technical areas but also value the chance to work in many broader domains. Engineering Managers at Riot serve as a mentor for a team of engineers, overseeing performance management and growth opportunities.

As an Engineering Manager on the League Client Team, you’ll report to the team's Senior Engineering Manager in our office in Los Angeles. You will guide the team's engineers to make the League Client more performant, improve development workflow efficiency, and reduce application complexity. You'll build and monitor health metrics to be used to increase client stability and reliability. The League of Legends client uses the Chromium Embedded Framework to render major components of the League experience like Champion Select, Player Profile and Collections, Queue Selection, and Lobbies.
