Quality Lead (Technology)
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 a Quality Lead in Technology, you'll develop and own testing strategies across multiple highly technical teams, dedicated to delivering millions of awesome player experiences by improving Riot's games and services throughout development. In this critical role, your Quality Assurance experience combined with coding background, mastery of systems, and gaming experience allow you to air drop into highly technical teams and design sustainable testing strategies and solutions. Your ability to rapidly switch between testing strategy, execution, metric collection and analysis will help you drive engineers, artists and designers to healthy quality goals.
