Developer Connections (DevCon) connects developers around the globe allowing them to ship games reliably and efficiently. We sit at the intersection of Game Studios, R&D, and Central Tech, allowing us to keep our fingers on the pulse of development across Riot. Our aim is to unblock teams so they can hit essential milestones for launching future games. The DevCon Service Deploy team is focused on providing deployment solutions for game teams and central teams that need to reliably ship their services worldwide. We work with these customer teams to understand their needs, and we work with infrastructure teams to ensure the right technology is available for us to craft end-to-end products that solve real problems in production.

As the Manager, Software Engineering for DevCon Service Deploy, your mission is to make delivering services to players seamless for developers.  To do this you’ll need to understand when and how to leverage cloud infrastructure and automation to turn chronically underserved tools and processes into first class offerings that unlock the full potential of your fellow creatives.  You are equally comfortable setting the vision for where your team is going and diving into the code to hit critical milestones. You’re an advocate for the unsung glue teams, the folks that often make the biggest impact by nailing the little details.
