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 core member of our Production team, you'll join the effort of forming a passionate cross-functional teams in creating innovative product and incredible experiences for players. By inspiring teams to collaborate, you'll drive development, smashing through obstacles and driving projects across the finish-line and into players' hands. You'll meet and exceed expectations by helping to conceptualize, deliver, enhance, and influence creative product at every stage of the production.

Shanghai does not develop core game content ourselves, so we'll be relying on you to co-develop great products outside of the core game content for our players, and to support our growth. (i.e. all the product development that will eventually benefit our players). As a Rioter in Shanghai, you'll join a growing team of player-focused pros that share our rejection of convention and maniacal passion for gaming. Our office is now focused on esports, merchandising, and media business in China. And within this office, you will be working with people from all disciplines, ranging from Marketing, Video Production, Live Services, Events, Business Development, procurement/supply chain, engineering, etc. Riot Games Shanghai office is committed to creating experiences that show Chinese players they aren't lost in translation. We would love for you to join us to shape how we deliver better experience to players in China together.

To reinforce Riot's collaborative culture in our China offices, we've decided to do away with the constraints of traditional hierarchical title structures that are more common in the region. Titles don't really matter at any of Riot's offices, but we chose to take this extra step in our China offices to foster a space where teamwork thrives. We believe that removing this constraint will promote individual autonomy, ownership, collaboration, and a focus on results. We promise you won't need a title at Riot to make an impact.
