As Analysts at Riot, we build analyses that help Rioters to make difficult decisions. We are part of an interdisciplinary team that works with Rioters from other disciplines (i.e. - designers, artists, engineers, producers) to conduct studies and analyses that will inform the features, systems, and experiences of our products.

League of Legends: Wild Rift is a large and complex game designed from the ground-up to recreate the authentic feel of League of Legends gameplay on mobile & console. Wild Rift generates enormous amounts of data to inform gameplay design and product strategy. As a key member of the Wild Rift Insights team reporting to the Insights Manager, you will conduct analyses on large datasets to better understand the player experience through our game systems, features, and live services. Types of analysis you will dive into may include balance analytics, game pacing studies, new feature/content evaluation, goal-setting with designers, or other foundational gameplay analysis.

You'll also be partnered with people across different work functions and external teams, so relationship management is an important part of your craft. If through your quantitative analyses, you are excited to surface how players engage with the game to help the team make better decisions, this is a great opportunity.
