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 Esports Manager, you'll tackle diverse projects across all parts of the Esports team in Vietnam. You'll learn new skills on the fly, own tasks, and tackle problems as part of a team. You'll ratchet your multitasking skills into overdrive as you juggle multiple projects across diverse teams, including Tournament Operations, Content, and Player Management, and help build esports strategy without losing focus.
You'll help build an entrepreneurial team of internationally and culturally diverse professionals that share our obsession with player experience, a maniacal passion for gaming, and rejection of convention. With teams in Community, Publishing, and Marketing, we are dedicated to defining the standards of player experiences in Vietnam and across the world.
- A motivated self-starter: you're driven to define your own strategic priorities and take action without micromanagement or a Sherpa to guide the way; you see ambiguity as a challenge, but also an opportunity, eagerly seeking solutions no matter how much is on your plate

- A skilled negotiator: you enter tough negotiations with dry palms and a focused mind, knowing how to skillfully navigate the situation to best settle differences and, ideally, win concessions; you're able to be honest and direct without losing trust, so that regardless of the resolution, you ensure personal relationships remain unscathed
- A problem solver: when problems appear, you're the on-call fixer, applying your methodical approach to clean up even the stickiest of situations; you look past the obvious solution, checking in with all sources to uncover any hidden issues lying dormant
- Positively collaborative: you don't just play well with others, you enjoy brainstorming with team members, especially when you need perspective on something outside your area of expertise
- Adaptable: you recognize that situations change and complications arise, and you're ok with that; you're coolly flexible and able to handle whatever comes your way, moving seamlessly from one thing to the next
- Strategic: your foresight is 20/20, enabling you to get a jump on future trends and shifts with seer-like accuracy; you anticipate consequences, creating breakthrough strategies and plans that zig when everyone else is stuck in the zag
